Upon arriving home yesterday evening, two ugly brown bananas were staring at me from the fruit bowl! Yikes. If you know me at all, you will know that once a banana is no longer green I consider it eligible for banana bread because it is too disgusting to eat without further intervention!
So, I made one of my "go to" banana muffin recipes that is now in our lunches today.
Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins:
1/2 cup canola oil2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 ugly brown bananas
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 heaping tablespoons ground flax seed
Mix ingredients in order listed. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
Now, for a couple of cool pictures from my weekend. I live in the beautiful province of Alberta and only a three hour drive from the Rocky Mountains. I love that I have a son who loves to be outdoors and with him we are able to enjoy the outdoor activities of this part of the world; hiking, kayaking, and mountain biking which is what we did this weekend.
This is a picture of the Hoodoos on Tunnel Mountain taken by myself as I hiked after my husband and son. I the asthmatic was lagging behind, so this is what most of my photos look like:
We had an awesome time and can hardly wait til our week there in July!
Hope this inspires your own creativity...
