  • Bake for 15 to 18 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the tops of the muffins spring back when lightly touched.
    I routinely change out the fruit and nuts. You can use whatever fresh fruit you have on hand. I also use dried diced apricots, cherries or craisins a lot. Any frozen fruit works too; berries, peaches etc. Carrot and raisin is yummy, as is pumpkin and chocolate chip. I have also stirred in peanut butter and added more banana and/or used chopped peanuts. I normally use pecans, but any nut works. The combinations are endless, but you kind of have to work with the consistency when using dried or frozen fruit as the dried needs a little more liquid and the frozen fruit less. I also usually add a couple of tablespoons of milled flax and just sour regular milk with vinegar or lemon juice instead of using buttermilk. Sometimes I make them into mini muffins or make them into a loaf of bread, I just try to mix it

  • I just try to mix it up as my family tires of the same thing easily.
    I hope you and your family enjoy this. Let me know if you come up with any good combinations or if you have a way of making this a little healthier or better.
