The perfect knitting companion . . .

A good snack!  After all, a girl has to keep her strength up for all that Christmas gift knitting!

I had some bananas that were way too ripe, so I decided to bake up some banana muffins. I have plenty of banana nut recipes that I like, but I decided to try a new one this time. I popped over to Sugar, Spice & More Things Nice, which is a combination food and diabetes blog all rolled into one.  And I gave Rachel's Version of Banana Bread a try.

Oh my goodness.


I don't think I'll ever use another banana recipe again! I made a few mods, but they were minor. First, I cut the whole recipe in half. It still made a dozen muffins, which is plenty for me and Pea. Second, obviously, I made muffins instead of breads. I baked them just like I bake any other muffin recipe, for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. And lastly, because I was lazy I didn't do the topping. I'm sure it's awesome, but I loved these muffins without it.  And I only had semi-sweet mini-morsels, so that's the only chocolate in there.  But they're still so yummy!!  If a banana muffin had a torrid love affair with a bag of granola, these muffins would be their sinful love-child. Mmmmmmmmmmm.

YUMMY! I'm going straight to the link to copy the pattern. Those muffins look simply delicious! You should have an abundant amount of strength to do some serious knitting. Perhaps an allnighter?

Oh my gosh. I think my eyes just rolled up into my head at the sight of those yummy muffins. I just tossed 3 or 4 way over-ripe bananas the other day, thinking as they disappeared into the trash that I should have made something with them.
