Banana Cornmeal Muffins

Banana Cornmeal Muffins
Many times I've shared my dislike for the taste of bananas.  However, along with my lack of preferring that fruit, I also know that Potassium is an important mineral that's needed in our daily diets!  The reality is that Bananas are a great source & bananas can be purchased easily.  O.K., I get it!  For that reason a bunch of that particular fruit is purchased weekly, sometimes twice per week.  Usually, banana slices are added to my yogurt at lunchtime.  Or slices of an overripe banana are added to Cream of Wheat cereal while it's cooking (directions) on the stove. 

Usually, a box of "JIFFY" corn muffin mix can be found in my pantry.  For me- it's a "comfort food".  My mom always made these muffins.  The other day both the boxed mix & an overripe banana were available.  We enjoy Banana Cornmeal Pancakes, so why not make muffins?  I did!  What a great combo - Banana Cornmeal Muffins!

I followed the directions on the package, BUT did use my substitutions:
  • 2 Egg Whites replacing 1 Whole Egg
  • Soy Milk replacing Milk
I added:
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 mashed Banana
8 golden Banana Cornmeal Muffins were baked!  So tasty!  4 of these yummy muffins were placed in our freezer for another morning.
It's taken years, but I seem to be enjoying the taste of that particular fruit!  Never knew I'd say that!  WoW!

The terms "Winter Storm Warning" & "crippling snowstorm" have been broadcasted numerous times today describing the beginning of this week!  Our fridge & our pantry are full & our snow blower is "good to go"!  It will be interesting here in the Northeast!

The Banana Cornmeal Muffins (that are in our freezer) will be yummy tomorrow!
