Banana Nut Oat Muffins

Banana Nut Oat Muffins

Banana Nut Oat Muffins are such a great way not only to use up all those ripe bananas but makes such an amazing breakfast as well.

Banana Nut Oat Muffins

Often times when I cannot sleep I tend to bake. I am not a big baker as you all know if you are following me for a longer period of time, but I do like baking these simple baked goodies.

Bread, rolls and these types of goodies like these muffins are my specialties. Oh, I do enjoy the whole process of bread making.

Anyhow, these muffins are just fantastic on days when you just do not know what to serve your kids and no one is eating those bananas.

Banana Nut Oat Muffins

I had that exact problem, so this came really handy for two days. Having everyone home is not as easy as it seems even though I love having my kids all in one place.

That being said, this mama does need a break from time to time. So baking is definitely one great escape for me.

It is just so relaxing and therapeutic. Just like listening to music, which I do when I bake, so it’s really amazing time for me. Don’t you agree?

Well, my kids really like having warm muffins for breakfast or brunch, and I have feeling your family would too.

Plus you can totally make these together especially if you have a younger crew around you.

Banana Nut Oat Muffins

I remember all the great memories that I created with my children when they were much younger.

To be honest I miss having those moments, even though I love spoiling them often.

Banana Nut Oat Muffins

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Banana Nut Oat Muffins are easy and tasty breakfast or brunch idea.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4-5 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F and lightly butter muffin tins. One large muffin tin or two smaller works just fine.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix then add rolled oats and chopped or crushed walnuts.
  3. Mash bananas with a fork in a small bowl so they still have a bit of texture
  4. Add sugar, melted butter, oil, beaten eggs, and vanilla. Mix well scraping down the sides of the bowl once or twice. You can use an electric mixer but it is not neccecery.
  5. Mix in the dry ingredients just until incorporated, together with oats and nuts.
  6. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins to fill them about halfway. Give them a rap on the counter to get any air bubbles out.
  7. Bake, until a toothpick stuck in the center of muffins, comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before turning the muffins out.
  8. You can keep them in the fridge after they are completely cooled down. Make sure muffins are in the ziplock bag or container with a lid. Wam them up before serving.

Notes

You can add dried fruit or chocolate chips which is amazing in these muffins.

If you do not have oats that ios completely fine. You do not have to panic because they are great without it as well.

If you do not have walnuts you can use any other nut, roasted and unsalted; pecans, almonds, peanuts, etc. It just a great to have extra crunch.

Waffle Breakfast Board

Waffle Breakfast Board

Saving the Day with Danone® Products at Publix!

This post is sponsored by Danone North America. The opinions and text are all mine.

A Waffle Breakfast Board would not be complete without the signature sides of luscious fruits, yogurt, homemade granola, and jam.

Waffle Breakfast Board

My family loves a quick and easy meal, especially during the weekend, so we have been making some type of board every Saturday or Sunday.

This week we decided to create this graceful and gorgeous spread with the help of Danone. I was so enthralled by the way it turned out.

It is bright, tasty and popping with colors. There is truly something for everyone.

Danone has been a part of my family for a long time, and I continue to buy their products for myself all the time.

Their products are an amazing snack and are definitely a quick on-the-go breakfast, school, or work lunch essential.

Waffle Breakfast Board

With that being said, I’ve created many phenomenal desserts using Activia® and Two Good® yogurts, such as parfaits, making incredible salad dressing, using it in my baked goodies, and smoothies.

It is such a versatile product packed with delicious ingredients. I also picked up Stok® Cold Brew and So Delicious® Coconutmilk Creamer.

In addition to my Waffle Breakfast Board in the morning, ifyou genuinely love a good iced coffee and silky creamer, Publix has your back.

Stok Cold Brew Coffee

Well, I need my coffee hot every single morning, but my college son adores his coffee iced, no exceptions, with a generous amount of creamer.

Most of the time when he is home, I get him excellent Stok Black Unsweetened cold brew coffee.

As well as a complementary sweetener such as the rich andcreamy coconutmilk creamer from So Delicious.

They are both qualifying products for the Save the Day Stack the Savings promotion at Publix.

Creamer from So Delicious

Nevertheless, this iced coffee and creamer naturally makean outstanding addition to our Waffle Breakfast Board!

Easy and Quick Salad Dressing

When it comes to lunch or dinner, one of my favorite multi-purpose salad dressings is this incredibly creamy dressing using Two Good plain low-fat yogurt.

I sincerely love it with romaine lettuce, radishes, and cherry tomatoes.

Salad with Yogurt Lemon Dressing

However, if you have some tomatoes and cucumbers, this dressing instantly makes one delicious salad. Perhaps use it to make a pasta salad.

Also, serve it on the platter with vegetables like peppers, carrots, cucumber, etc., you would be surprised how tasty it is.

Yogurt Lemon Dressing

  • 1/2 cup Two Good plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. dried parsley
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

I love a good sandwich, especially these amazingly delicious and super easy Bacon Eggs and Cheese Croissant Sandwiches.

It is a comforting breakfast or you may eat it for brunch. Well, we prep it many times even for dinner. Wouldn’t you agree that sometimes breakfast for dinner hits the spot?

It was a perfect meal to keep him full until lunchtime. He is on the winter break so he is home from college for one more week.

I like spoiling my kids with good homemade food. To be honest, I think I just love feeding people.

Bacon Eggs and Cheese Croissant Sandwiches

So, if you into making your own croissant, be my guest and made that buttery pastry. However, you can pretty much get them these days in any grocery store bakery.

I got a boxful of smaller or mini Croissant from Kroger’s brand private selection. They were great for these sandwiches. Additionally, it saves you so much time.

Anyhow, I do have many sandwich recipes so my blog that I know you will love. I must recommend one of my favourites, which is similar to this one just by using bagel.

Bacon Eggs and Cheese Croissant Sandwiches

Brunch Bagel Sandwich – egg, bacon, cheese, avocado and lettuce.

Saying that I love bagels is an understatement. I really enjoy nice bagels sandwiches and my family is exactly the same.

I know perfectly well that this sandwich is nothing new, but I wanted to have it on my blog as an idea.

You know when you come and search for sandwiches and you see these beauties. You instantly know that you are craving it.

Scramble some eggs, crisp up your bacon in the air fryer, add a few slices of cheese and you got yourself an amazing breakfast meal.

Bacon Eggs and Cheese Croissant Sandwiches
Yield: 1 Serving

Bacon Eggs and Cheese Croissant Sandwiches

Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 12 minutes

Bacon Eggs and Cheese Croissant Sandwiches are a perfect breakfast or brunch meal.

Ingredients

  • 2 slices of hardwood bacon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • Pinch of salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chives, optional
  • 2 oz mild cheddar cheese, or any on hand
  • 2 small croissants or one larger.

Instructions

  1. Place bacon in the air fryer and crip it up for 10 to 12 minutes, depending on your taste, at 360 degrees Fahrenheit. You may also use bacon pre-set temperature on your air fryer. For oven baking: place bacon in the baking pan and bake for about 15 minutes at 350F or until it is crispy to your desire. *If you are baking in the oven, do not toss those drippings. Save them and you may make potatoes or chicken in it. So good!
  2. Meanwhile, make eggs. Crack two eggs in the cup and add salt, pepper and chives which are optional. Mix until the eggs are smooth. Preheat your skillet or frying pan with a dab of butter and at the lower temperature cook eggs. You could make something like an omelette and fold with cheese before adding to your sandwich or you may make scrambled eggs and toss some cheese on top to melt. You have both useful methods below.
  3. Now, open your Croissant just by slicing in half.
  4. Add cheese eggs then slices of bacon on top.
  5. You may heat it all together in the air fryer, microwave or oven for a couple of minutes or until Croissants are softer. Enjoy!

If you are heating sandwich in the air-fryer, use temp of 350F for 3-4 minutes. The time and results will depend on your air fryer.

If you are heating sandwich in the microwave, you will heat it for 20-30 seconds. The time and results will depend on your microwave.

If you are heating sandwich in the oven, you could preheat the oven to 375F, cover sandwiches with alum foil or similar and allow it to get sandwiches heated through for about 5-7 minutes. The time and results will depend on your oven.

Creamy scrambled eggs:

  1. The moment the eggs hit the pan, use a heavy-duty silicone spatula to rapidly swirl in small circles around the pan until the eggs look slightly thickened and very small curds begin to form.
  2. Then try changing from swirling in circles to making long sweeps across the pan so it could cook into larger curds. You may add a bit of shredded cheese on top and before adding in the sandwich.


Cheesy Omelette:

  1. Once the pan is hot, pour in the combined mixture in the pan. Use a heavy-duty silicone spatula to gently move cooked egg in from the edge of the pan to the middle, creating curds.
  2. Slightly tilt a skillet or a pan and rotate to make sure that any uncooked egg fills in any empty spaces that you just pulled in the middle.
  3. When the surface of the egg looks wet but does not jiggle or look too uncooked when the pan is shaken, it is ready for the cheese or any other filling.
  4. Add cheese on one side and fold the omelette in half with a spatula.
  5. Slice in half and you can use one half of the sliced omelette for each sandwich.

Notes

Double or triple the ingredients if you going to make more than one serving. Salt and black pepper technically you will only need a generous pinch of both.
