Muffin Love! August 10, 2010

Filed under: August 2010,Recipes — The Threaded Nest @ 1:33 pm

Has it really been over a week since I last posted???

Sorry about that…we’ve just been having too much fun!

Finally had a cool enough day today to do some baking…

and whipped up some Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins!

Recipe from King Arthur Flour HERE

Love that this recipe uses half whole wheat flour to make them a bit more wholesome…

to compensate for all of the chocolaty goodness and raw sugar sprinkled on top ha ha ;0)

I followed the recipe but used one cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips

and omitted the walnuts and cinnamon chips

and used my Kitchen Aid stand mixer to add all of the ingrediants

except for the chocolate chips that I hand stirred in.

R. had the first bite and gave these muffins two thumbs up!

I just adore how she scrunches up her cute little nose when she takes a big bite…

and how she doesn’t even bother to wipe the chocolate off her mouth

before she goes in again for another bite =0)

(Oh and I have to point out her sparkly earrings because she was so brave this past weekend and got her ears pierced!)

Happy baking,

    Mmmm, so yummy! The cinnamon chips sound so good too. And do you remember the banana cake with the butterscotch chips I made for Nate’s 2nd b-day? Another great combo. R’s earrings look so pretty šŸ™‚
