  1. FABULOUS 5 star muffins!!!! I subbed homemade peanut butter granola with a handful of chocolate chips thrown in. . .I mean really, could there be a better blend of flavors than banana, peanut butter and chocolate?!?!?!? Outstanding! And my picky toddler who eats NOTHING I make actually ate these up. My batter was a bit thick so I threw in 1/4 cup of applesauce and it was perfect. I made 12 mini muffins (cooked 12 minutes) and 12 regular sized muffins (cooked 18 minutes). Thanks for a winner of a recipe that I will definitely repeat! Made for Photo Tag. UPDATE: I made this recipe again. . .subbed Splenda for the sugar (will decrease amount next time) and used a trail mix from Aldi's with pineapple, cranberries, peanuts and white chocolate chips. Nice! Made them into mini muffins again and this time they took about 15 minutes.
  2. Crafty- these are simple nd delicious. I ended up with 18 muffins as I made them only 1/2 full in the cups (easier to portion control myself) and easier t send in lunch bags for DS and DH. These are great for a breakfast on the run and for anytime in between. I had a chocolate craze and ended up subbing this in instead of a candy bar and I was very satisfied. Used 1 c of granola ceral and 1/2 c plus a shake of mini chocolate chips. I am going to make more of these using mint chocolate chips. I am wondering how the mint and the banana would taste. YUMMY I bet. Thank you. Made for Beverage Tag August 09


<p>Update: &nbsp;I have changed my profile picture in honor of my dear best friend and loyal companion that I lost to cancer on 6/25/11. Maxx was the best dog that anyone could ever hope to have in their life. &nbsp;Until we meet again, sweet boy, you will be forever in my heart and memories. I currently live in the country with two dogs (a 12 pound&nbsp;poodle mix&nbsp;named Suki and a new member to the family, a 7-month old(?) 7.5 pound terrier mix named Angel ). &nbsp; I got Angel from the dog pound a week after I lost my beloved Maxx. &nbsp;Suki and I both needed a new companion to help us cope with our loss. &nbsp;Nothing will ever replace Maxx, but she has helped to uplift Suki's spirit. I am a secretary for a county school board. I love to cook, bake, crochet, paint, sew, read and anything to do with crafts. I was born in Tokyo,Japan. My father was in the Air Force and my moher was Japanese. I love to cook (and eat) a variety of foods from many different nations. I especially like trying out new recipes and experimenting with both old and new recipes. I also love participating in the great Zaar events like the tag games, recipe swaps, and Zaar World Tours. I recently participated in my first RSC contest. I have definitely had a lot of fun since joining Recipezaar. Update - September 20, 2007 I am proud to announce that I have just been blessed with my first grandchild. My son and daughter-in-law have given me a beautiful little granddaughter. &nbsp;[URL=;t=f6fd3ae3.pbw][IMG][/IMG][/URL] Make Reservation Online Create your own visitor map *************************************************** [Reply]</p>
