Back to School!

These past few weeks have been more than a little bit frantic with the kids going back to school after holidays and hubby going to stay with my folks for a few weeks to work on a commissioned art piece.

I know that I can get a little lazy when it comes to school snacks when it comes to hectic times, so this time around I pushed myself to get some baking done instead of cheating and buying snacks instead.

So last week, I made Banana and Oat Muffins, Rolled Oat Slice and Banana Bread (recipe courtesy of Mrs K., a long standing loyal client turned friend!).  This particular Banana Bread recipe never lasts long in our house, although I did manage to save about ¼ of it to send with hubby, along with ½ a dozen muffins.

I’m sure I’ll find myself back in the kitchen at some time this week . . . in between washing, mowing and taking the Minions to visit their Daddy!

Banana and Oat Muffins

Banana and Oat Muffins

Ingredients

  • 4 small ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 ½ cups wholemeal Self-raising Flour
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • ¾ cup rolled oats (not quick oats)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (170°C fan forced) and place muffin papers into a 12-cup muffin tray. This makes between 12 and 18, depending on how you fill your muffin papers.
  2. Place mashed bananas, egg, milk, butter and vanilla into a large mixing bowl. Mix well with an electric mixer.
  3. Add flour, cinnamon and sugar and mix well.
  4. Spoon mixture into the muffin papers. I make sure they’re about ¾ full. They’re not too big for my Minions this way.
  5. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes until cooked through (use a metal skewer to check). Do not overcook.
