How was your weekend?

I was really hoping to catch Snowwhite & the Huntsman, but didn’t bypass to it. Have you seen it? Charlize Theron looks unbelievable in the previews. I am hoping I appearance that great when I’m 35. If I keep operating like I have already been I might get there.
On Friday my friend and We were likely to get up at 6am for the 6-mile run. We’re wanting to train for a marathon… or just operate really long distances when i haven’t made a decision if I’ll do it. Anyhow neither folks could easily get out of bed so we chosen an evening operate instead… which was terrible. Miserable actually! I believed I was going to die; the sun was defeating on my encounter and I was actually sweating waterfalls. It was 90 degrees out and rather than 6 miles, we made a decision to run 9. I believed someone would need to scoop me faraway from the pavement and put an IV in my own arm. But we made it!
Even though at times running could be torture, I usually feel great later on; like I possibly could run another 9 mls… or at least bake some pretty amazing banana muffins like these.
Baking muffins seems like the only appropriate move to make with all the leftover ripe bananas just seated on your kitchen counter. It happens on the weekly basis. Most likely because they’re just 19 cents at Investor Joe’s – and I’m hardly ever one to pass up a good deal (particularly when you grocery shop in so far as i perform). It’s why I make an obscene quantity of banana breads , banana cupcakes … oh, and my brand-new favorite? Banana Ice Cream Baking issues with bananas simply makes my heart beat.
I first produced these per month ago when visiting my grandparents. I wanted to bake something special for my grandpa-who happens to LOVE everything banana. I mean, we’re certainly related.
He’s also acquired a couple of heart attacks so I didn’t want to provide him something harmful (just like the bacon and muffins-the-size-of-my-head my grandma makes him EVERY MORNING). I’ve included the dietary info for these at the bottom of this post.
Seriously even healthy banana muffins hardly ever disappoint.
I don’t know about you, however, many mornings I want to like a baked good and not feel guilty about it. These better-for-you banana muffins make that happen with basic swaps to lower fat and calorie consumption.
Using very ripe bananas offer normal sweetness for the muffins (indicating you don’t have to use as much sugar). Darkish sugar can be slighty sweeter compared regular brown sugar, so I opted for that. I swapped the butter for non-fat greek yogurt (mega proteins), making the muffins damp and deliciously appealing. Adding egg whites vs. whole eggs reduces the fat and calories.
A brown sugar-walnut crumble was completely required though. The walnuts put in a touch of good fats and the crumbly topping… DIVINE!
My grandpa gobbled them up in under two days and my
grandma even asked me for the recipe. That says something since she makes everything delicious from nothing.
I don’t think I have to tell you that these are specifically good for midnight snacking. Warm them up and spread with creamy peanut butter. Here’s more info in regards to taco stuffed zucchini boats about a mom take a look at our own website. Muffin heaven!
But then once again, when is not a muffin good?

My variations: I omitted the butter ( totally didn’t effect the muffins) and added half a banana instead, added a teaspoon of flaxseed, used 1 1/4 whole wheat grains, and utilized full-fat greek yogurt.
Hardly ever achieved such moist and delicious results, I admit.
A-M-A-Z -I-N-G!
Oh, also We used one egg, instead of 2 egg whites.
