Blue berry-banana muffins

This is another one of my tests. They were pretty populair with my family, so I hope you like them too.

Ingredients:11164080_10205375704365882_1257577559_n
4 cups gluten-free flour
1½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
4 mashed ripe bananas
4 eggs
¾ cup milk (I use non-dairy milk)
½ cup coconut oil
½ cup maple syrup
1½ cups blueberries

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease 2 regular muffin tins (for a total of 24 medium muffins).  You could alternately use 2 9×5 inch loaf pans, four mini-loaf pans, or a combination.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the dry ingredients.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the mashed banana, eggs, milk, coconut oil, and maple syrup.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir to combine well.  Fold in the blueberries.11074518_1107891385903064_152601407_n
  5. Bake muffins for 18 to 20 minutes, mini loaves for 35-40 minutes, or regular loaves for 50-60 minutes.  Keep an eye on them so they don’t overcook, or else they will come out dry.
  6. Cool on a wire rack.11116207_1107891349236401_1386505133_n I got this recipe from: http://realfoodrealdeals.com/blueberry-banana-muffins/

Oatmeal Casserole

This week I’ve been testing a lot of healthy recipes. My sister and I search the internet to find them and I make one recipe a day, since my sister isn’t really a baker ;).

A couple of days ago a tried out a new recipe: a baked oatmeal casserole. It tasted better than I expected, it reminded me a bit of bread pudding.

Here is the recipe:

Ingredients
  • 2 Cups All Natural Oats
  • ⅓ Cup Brown Sugar (I used the Splenda blend)11074516_10205375724326381_958530400_n
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ½ Cup Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Cup Strawberries (we didn’t have them, so we used 1 apple)
  • ⅔ Cup Blueberries
  • 1 Ripe Banana
  • 2 Cups Milk
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 2 Tbsp Butter (cooled)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Spray a 10×10 casserole dish generously with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, mix oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, half the chocolate chips, & half the berries. Stir well and pour into casserole dish. Add the other half of the berries & chocolate chips to the top of the mixture. Then, slice the banana & add to top.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine milk, egg, butter, & vanilla. Whisk thoroughly. Pour on top of oatmeal mixture, making sure the all oats are soaked evenly.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes. Then, remove casserole & add a tablespoon of brown sugar to the top of the casserole for added sweetness (optional.) Bake for an additional 5 or 10 minutes or until the top of the casserole is golden brown.

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
