Easy Banana Nut Muffins

 

I hate blogs where they write about their whole family history before getting to the recipe. Just get to the point!

Banana Nut Muffins

Preheat oven to 350

3-4 bananas

1/3 c melted butter

1 egg

1 1/2 c bread flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp cinnamon

3/4 granulated sugar

1 tsp vanilla

 

Walnuts and Brazilian Nuts

1. Mash bananas in large bowl. Stir in melted butter.

2. Stir in sugar, egg, and vanilla. Then add in baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and stir everything together.

3. Add the flour and some nuts and stir until mixed.

4. Divide into 12 muffin cups. I used spray and spooned right in the pan. You can use liners.  Add nuts on top.

5. Bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes.

 

Flourless Banana Bread Muffins

Ingredients

¼ cup almond butter

2 ripe medium/large bananas

1 egg

2 Tbsp. honey

½ cup rolled oats

  1. ¼ cup almond flour/meal

2 Tbsp. ground flaxseed

1 tsp. vanilla extract

½ tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. ground cinnamon

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375F and prepare a muffin pan by spraying 9 cavities with cooking spray. Set aside.

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend on high until oats are broken down and batter is smooth and creamy.

Pour batter into prepared muffin pan, filling each cavity until it is about ¾ full.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the tops of your muffins are set and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Allow muffins to cool in pan for ~10 minutes before removing. Store in an air-tight container for up to a week.

My experience at Amazon Go

I read an article on Facebook about Amazon Go and never knew it even existed. It is a convenience store with snacks, lunches, meals and even some alcohol. What makes it unique is that there are no cashiers or cash registers. You walk in and walk out…pretty much like shop lifting but it is legal.

How it works: you must download the Amazon Go App. Before entering the store you must scan it. I had my daughter with me and she did not not have the app so I scanned, she walked in first and then I scanned again and walked in.

We walked around the tiny store. Took about 5 minutes and longer on deciding what cheap thing to buy. It was pricey but it is downtown Seattle. We ended up with a sandwich, drink and cookie and the Amazon Go tote bag. I kept the app open the whole time, nervous it won’t work while trying to take pics.

So after a couple minutes it was time to leave: hoping my app is working and some crazy alarm won’t go off while exiting. We made it and it was simple….just walk out.

Nothing happened and we got out the store in one piece. About a minute after leaving, the app updated and gave my my receipt. Pretty neat experience since it might be the way to shop in the future.

 

Flax Granola

Flax granola….yep it’s just flax seeds and whatever other toppings you want to add. I hate blogs that give you a huge story and then you have to continue to read well scroll all the way to the end just to get the recipe. So I won’t do that. Here it is. I got it from the Plan book. There’s 2 parts to this.

Part 1:

1 cup flax seeds

1/2 cup water.

Stir together and let sit overnight in fridge.

Part 2:

Preheat oven to 300

Place parchment paper on cookie sheet.

Poor flax seeds on cookie sheet and bake for an hour. Keep checking and stirring until all water is absorbed. About an hour. After 50 minutes add raisins, craisins, almonds etc….. bake 10 min. That is it!

➖When I make this, I use 3 cups of flax seeds. 1 1/2 cups water. 1/2 c almonds, 1/2 c craisins, 1/2 c raisins. This usually lasts about 5 days for 1 cup servings. Then I add 1/2 c blueberries and coconut milk.

Leggings Review

So I got these new leggings in the mail FINALLY. It took about a month. Normally my stuff from Ali comes 2-3 weeks. This was the longest wait ever! They are cute though!

Anyways. I was excited and tried them on. Wasn’t expecting the back to be white. What underwear do you wear with white? I tried boy shorts…thong and briefs and it was a NO. Tried going commando and that was a bigger NO GO….dimples were showing. The best I found was the seamless undies. I did the squat test, bend over test etc!

Not bad for under $10. I’ve seen these sell on Facebook for $24.99 and higher! Check it out here!

I was just hoping I was going to look like the model in the pic.😂😂

Testing out a New Meal Plan

I hate meal prep. I hate cooking. But after seeing results of my friend who lives across country, I decided to give it a try. No processed food. No macros. No counting anything.

I just spend my whole morning in the kitchen preparing my lunches for the next couple of days. I went shopping yesterday. This was part of my groceries.

I’m actually surprised it wasn’t really that much more. $160 for all my groceries for my family of three for the week.

Make sure to follow my blog to get my review and results!
