I've been slacking!  I know that I haven't posted anything in quite a while, but I'm back.

I decided to take a small break over the Thanksgiving holiday to recharge.  Boy did I need that!  It seems like work is in full swing more than usual now, plus being in a new home, and new routine, with the addition of all the holiday stuff to do I felt exhausted.  I'm sure you know the feeling.  So a much needed break was in order.

How was everyone's Thanksgiving?  Did you get enough turkey?  I've still been cooking up a storm.  I have so many dishes to bring you over the next couple of weeks.  All tasty and comforting.  So while I may have been slacking in my posts today's dish is not slacking on the flavor!

BANANA OAT MUFFINS

I've been cooking a lot of muffins lately.  My weakness, I know.  But don't you just love them?  This muffins uses your over-ripened banana that you have hanging around, plus I threw in some oats for a healthy dose.  What a great combination.  I found the idea on Pinterest (of course...) where they made mini muffins with the bananas and oat combination.  I knew I had to make them, but since I like big, sock-it-to-me muffins I adapted the recipe to suit my taste.

Imagine piping hot muffins filled with the aroma of bananas and cinnamon.  One bite and you notice the texture is a little more crumbly, with subtle hints of earthiness.  Pure Heaven!

Again these are easy to whip up on a weekend morning.  I made a small batch, enough for a family, but you can double this and have 12 muffins if you choose.  Remember they freeze perfectly and are great grab and go breakfasts!

So no more slacking for me....watch out for more exciting recipes to come!

Enjoy!
