Bananascotch Muffins: Tasty Treat On A Snowy Day

by Douglas L. Bishop on 1/22/2016 16:54

Snow day, kids!

While you’re outside building a snowman, I’ll be whipping up a batch of my very delicious and nutritious muffins for you--my extra special creation of Bananascotch Muffins.

Not only are they yummy delicious, but they also contain two tasty and nutritious treats kids love--bananas and oatmeal. (Note the nutrition we’re sneaking in there!)

And just to make sure they’re crazy good and completely different from any other muffins on the planet, we’ll stir in a generous cup of butterscotch chips.

Here’s the recipe for all you muffin makers out there who want to stir up a batch of goodness for your little snow angels.

1/3 cup melted coconut oil (or olive oil)

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup honey

2 eggs

3 ripe bananas (approximately 1 generous cup)

1/4 cup milk (or walnut milk or almond milk)

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 3/4 cup flour (whole wheat or all purpose)

1/3 cup old-fashioned oats

1 cup butterscotch chips

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Blend together the first 3 ingredients, then beat in the eggs. Mash the bananas into a softened puree, and mix them in along with the milk. Add the vanilla, salt, and cinnamon, and blend the mixture well. Stir in the flour and oats and add the butterscotch chips.

Now fill each of your muffin cups about 2/3 full of this well-blended mixture. Sprinkle sugar, oats, and slivered almonds onto the top of each muffin before putting the pan into the oven. Bake at 325 degrees until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean (approximately 20 to 25 minutes). This amount of batter will make about a dozen full size muffins or 20 to 24 mini-muffins.

Now for the final and most important step!

As your muffins are cooling on top of the stove and filling the kitchen with an unbelievably wonderful aroma, call the little snowman builders into the house for a piping hot tasty treat--your homemade and magnificent Bananascotch Muffins!!
