Since school started our family has less time in the morning, so we’ve stopped eating hearty breakfasts like hot oatmeal that take a lot of time. We’ve been having breakfast muffins instead. These are quick to eat and a great way to use up extra cereal mix that we weren’t using.
Today’s recipe is the final version of recipes I’ve been trying that use the extra cereal I had on hand. Major ingredients include bananas, pecans (in part since a friend is allergic to walnuts), raisin, flax seed, and a mixture of flour and cereal.
These muffins are not over-the-top sweet but are perfectly balanced due to the ripe bananas. I don’t mash my bananas in this recipe but keep them in big pieces. This helps the muffins stay moist over time.
I hope you give these wonderful muffins a try. They are delicious, convenient and portable!
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup cream of wheat cereal
- 1/2 cup Bob’s 10 grain cereal
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 tbsp. baking powder
- 1/3 tsp. salt
- 1 tbsp. flax seeds
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans
- 1/4 cup raisin
- 2 ripe banana, ends trimmed, then cut into 15 equal pieces
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/3 cup canola oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Line and grease 15 muffin cups, then set aside.
In a large mixing bowl combine all dry ingredients, except nuts, raisins, and bananas.
In an another bowl, combine all wet ingredients. Beat well with handheld mixer or a whisk. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients until all ingredients are moistened. Fold in the nuts and raisins.
Pour batter into a greased paper lined muffin pan, filling cups 3/4 full. Place one banana slice in the middle of each batter, pressing it gently.
Bake muffins in the preheated oven for 16-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted around the banana slice comes out clean.
Cool on baking racks.
