Easing Back to School

Madelynne begins school on Wednesday—10th grade.  How could that be happening?








Since we have a play date tomorrow I made Banana Nut Muffins with Oatmeal Streusel to launch the school year.

The recipe came from an old issue of Cooking Light.









Assembling the ingredients was the most difficult part.








Whisk together the flours, cinnamon, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt.








Combine the banana with the wet ingredients.








Stir just until moistened and toss in the nuts.  The recipe called for walnuts.  I didn’t have any so I used pecans.








Spoon the batter into the greased paper liners.








Stir the streusel ingredients together and sprinkle over the batter.








The outcome was a light muffin with subtle banana flavor and not too sweet either.

Easily an acceptable start to the inevitable--

One little suggestion is to spray the paper liners with cooking spray allowing the muffin to release more easily.

Sophomore memories anyone?
