Today is the kind of day that makes me want to get into my kitchen and bake. It’s dreary and cold outside, which is perfect baking weather so I don’t mind it too much…it actually gives me the perfect excuse just to slow down. I need to slow down. Plus I had a bunch of bananas sitting on the counter slowly getting overripe, and getting on my nerves. If I have brown bananas I just can’t throw them out, I have to bake with them. It’s annoying. But good too, because now there’s a fresh batch of Banana Berry Bombs ready for snacking.
These Banana Berry Bomb Muffins are from a recipe I got from a neighbour about 12 years ago…I actually can’t believe it’s been that long. We used to get together when our kids were little, and have coffee and she would make these muffins. I’ve always loved them. They’re delicious and now they remind me of simpler times…sniff.
I like to sprinkle a little extra sugar on these muffins after they’re done baking! So good.
This is a great recipe for using up any ripe bananas you may have on your counter, and any berries in your freezer. They’re quick and easy to make, and they’re healthy too! Loaded with banana flavour, summer berries and wholesome ingredients. Bonus, they’re delicious and my kids love them! Hopefully yours will too!
Banana Berry Bomb Muffins
- 1 cup oats
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1/4 cup wheat germ
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 1/2 cups mashed bananas
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup frozen berries blueberries and/or raspberries
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Combine the oats, flour, wheat germ, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
In a separate bowl, mix together the bananas, eggs, melted butter and vanilla.
Add the frozen berries to the dry mix. (This may help to keep the berries from colouring your batter too much)
Then combine the 2 bowls.
