It has been raining/misting all morning.  With this dreary weather, I do not have a lot of ambition to do much of anything.  We did manage to make some delicious banana crumb muffins. I am not going to lie, these are pretty dang good.  I found the recipe years ago.  As the years went on I have changed it to our liking. I used to make them all the time in college and they would only last a couple of days. They are also one of my husbands all time favorite treats.  The best part is, they are really easy to mix up and only take 18-20 minutes to cook.  Works out that they finish up right as I am done cleaning up my mess.  So here is my fantastic recipe:

Banana Crumb Muffins

1 ½ Cup Flour

1 Tsp Baking Soda

1 Tsp Baking Powder

¼ Tsp Salt

¼ Tsp Cinnamon

3 Mashed Bananas

¾ Cup Sugar

1 egg

1/3 Cup Oil (I use Canola)


1/3 Cup Brown Sugar

2 Tbs Flour

½ Tsp Cinnamon

1 Tbs Butter

Directions: 1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 2. In a large bowl mix 1 1/2 Cup flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.  3. In a separate bowl beat together bananas, white sugar, egg, and oil.  4.Stir banana mixture into flour mixture.  5.Spoon batter into 12 prepared muffin cups.  6.In a small bowl mix together brown sugar, 2 Tbs flour, cinnamon, and room temperature butter. Mix until crumbly.  Sprinkle on top of muffins.  7. Bake in oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown and don’t sink when you touch them.

 If you like nuts you can add them as well. The muffins are also fantastic with CHOCOLATE.  I swear there are a lot of foods that start with c that make everything better. For instance, you can add more cheese to anything and it makes it better. Then you have  of course chocolate, coffee, wine, wine starts with a w so we will have to go with Champagne.  I think C might just be one of my favorite letter since I live on chocolate and coffee.

I also attempted to run with the double jogger stroller for the first time yesterday.  I will save that post for tomorrow. Holy smokes this mama is out of shape.

Last but not least, one of my helpers for the day.
