Honey Banana Oat Muffins

Here’s my newest creation. I’m attempting to retool some of my favorite recipes to make them healthier. For the basis of these muffins, I used my favorite banana bread recipe from one of those community cookbooks places use for fundraising (this one was from the Somerset Manor, a nursing home in Bingham, Maine). I tweaked it significantly, and it tastes pretty much nothing like the original. Still yummy though. Even Brian likes them. Acadia ate 4 in a row. Gannon despises them. I’ll eat his.

Honey Banana Oat Muffins

Ingredients 1/3 cup applesauce
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup honey
2 large eggs, beaten
3 ripe bananas, mashed well

My blog. Herein read entries related to who and what is important to me. Feel free to leave comments. I feel free to delete them if I don't like them. So there. By reading about my life, readers should expect to begin to see their own lives as increasingly more organized and sophisticated, their homes cleaner and neater.

Why This Blog?

Well, mostly this is for my family to see pictures and read anecdotes about the kids. It's also a venue for telling the story of my struggles and victories in my life as a Christian, a wife, a mother, and a teacher. Occasionally I toss in some weird or touching item that I've found.

What’s Christianity All About?

The Gospel is the news that Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, died for our sins and rose again, eternally triumphant over all his enemies, so that there is now no condemnation for those who believe, but only everlasting joy. [as said by John Piper]
