~ Banana Honey-Nut Muffins ~

I made some banana honey-nut muffins this past weekend. The recipe started out as a blueberry recipe , since I didn't have blueberries on hand. I made the recipe my own by adding ingredients I had on hand.
~ Banana Honey-Nut Muffins ~
1/4 cup butter softened
1/4 cup of local honey
1/4 cup of sugar
1 egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/3 cup of milk
1 cup of mashed banana
1/4 cup of finely chopped peanuts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Grease muffin tin.
Cream butter , honey and sugar together.
Add egg and mix well.
Add sifted dry ingredients and mix into honey and sugar mixture along with milk. Add bananas and nuts , mix well.
Bake 20 minutes.
Makes 12 full size muffins.
I've figured out a great way to heat up honey that has crystallized. I sit it on the heater floor vents. It warms up very slowly , but you don't have to worry about it getting to hot and destroying the wonderful microbes in the honey. I also use the vents to soften my butter.

Do you use your heat vents for anything other than heating ?

Those muffins look great! Our blizzard weather had me in a baking mood today too.

I put my slippers on the vent in the morning - nice warm feet. I'll give the honey warming a try now. And the recipe sounds great.

Hi Teresa ~ The muffins were delish. I'll be over to check out your baking sometime today.

Hi JoAnn ~ Love the idea of warming up your slippers , think I'll be doing that for the rest of the winter too.
