The ever present bagel.
My love . Paired with my other lover. Old cheddar.
And again . Just because it ‘s so pretty .
Maybe I just love melted cheese. Probably, considering every food photo I see that involves melted cheese leaves me needing to make that recipe right now!
Cheese and bagel love aside , I also rekindled another love.
Oh lord. I know a lot of people have issues with cereal . Some people cannot stop at one bowl so they simply don’t buy it . Others are rigid about the nutritionals and will only eat a specific amount , in an attempt to ward off any attempts at cereal overdose.
I however do not have a cereal problem really, but for probably 10 years I haven’t eaten it or purchased it ( aside from granola used for yogurt or baking purposes ) purely because it doesn’t do anything for me , fuel wise. I feel exactly the same after eating a bowl as I did prior , only with a sloshy stomach because of the milk . Does not quell the hunger beast .
While the cereal lover was beautiful , I don’t think I’ll be partaking in the cereal daily . So my bagel and cheddar need not worry .
I ‘m not one to scoff at too many lovers so I thought it would be nice ( although horridly sunny at 9 am when these photos were taken )to bring in some banana blueberry muffins.
Horrible lighting and thus photos aside, these muffins were soo good and just what I wanted with a mug of green tea.
I used fresh blueberries I had in the fridge and adapted a recipe I found online . I ended up with this : ( well and yummy muffins)
Banana Blueberry Muffins
- 1 cup whole-wheat flour
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour,
- 1/4 cup wheat bran
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup Becel Light ( you could use Smart Balance or something similiar or actual butter )
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 2 large eggs
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1/3 cup banana yogurt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
Cream together sugar , becel and maple syrup .Add in egg , mashed banana and vanilla and yogurt.
Mix together dry ingredients , and slowly add to wet. Stir in blueberries. Spoon into greased or papered muffins tins. Cook at 350 for 10-16 minutes or until tops are golden . Removed from pan immediately and set on wire rack to cool.
Now I want a muffin . And a cuddly dog who makes funny faces.
