Small Batch Banana Muffins

What do you do when you have one overly ripe banana left and it’s gotten too gross looking to eat? You make a small batch of banana muffins!  A batch of four muffins is the perfect amount for me and my sister. If you’re like me then you already have all of the ingredients on hand, even that handy dandy last banana that’s been sitting on the counter begging to be used.  You don’t even have a lot of dirty dishes to wash when you’re done.  That may sound silly but sometimes I’ll skip a recipe if it looks like …

Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

I can’t resist chocolate, even if it’s for breakfast.  Can you? I made double chocolate banana bread topped with peanut butter icing and mini peanut butter cups a couple of years ago.  Oh, it IS as delicious as it sounds.  I’ve been meaning to turn the recipe into muffins because who wouldn’t want the same tasty deal in a convenient grab it and go form? It might not look like it from these muffins but I’m still trying to stick to my “new year’s resolution” of eating healthier.  I use that phrase in quotes because I make that resolution on a …

Blueberry Muffins

Muffins are a good excuse to have cake for breakfast. Let’s face it, muffins are really like cupcakes without frosting.  I’d like to think that these muffins are a tad healthier than cupcakes since I’ve filled them with fruit, but in truth a lot of good cakes have fruit in them too.  Since fruit is healthy I hereby deem that muffins are healthy for breakfast.  Okay, probably not, but they sure are tasty.  😉 Muffins, being pre-portioned, are a great thing to bring for a crowd to eat.  No need for silverware to eat them with or cutting tools for …

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

TGIF! Guys, I’m so glad that this week is over.  This week I had a root canal.  Surprisingly, it wasn’t actually as bad as I thought it would be.  The bad part was that my dentist began the procedure last week but he couldn’t reach all of my roots so he had to sent me to an endodontist.  The pain was way, way worse last week.  Apparently I have curved roots which makes them difficult to get at but thankfully the endodontist was able to get at them and the root canal procedure was a success.  I’m not done yet though.  …

Pumpkin Cheesecake Muffins

Crumb topping, pumpkin cake, and cheesecake…  Need I say more?  Oh, and it all comes packaged in nifty muffin.  Enough said. I haven’t baked muffins in eons.  There was a period of time when I was baking muffins every weekend.  I think I realized somewhere along the way that a muffin is essentially a cupcake without icing.  Cupcakes aren’t exactly healthy, especially not for breakfast.  Although cupcakes are perfectly healthy for dessert because I figure it’s like a small piece of cake, at least the way I cut cake.  😉 I’ve been dying to bake these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies so I finally …
