Life is easier when you always have muffins on hand.

Life is easier when you always have muffins on hand.

This is the best muffin recipe because not only are they healthy and delicious, but this recipe makes exactly 12 muffins...no leftover batter. The fact you can whip them up in the the time it takes to make a pot of coffee makes these a staple for our busy crew.

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
There are two parts to this recipe, the first part is the Muffin Mix Base which is the dry ingredients and is the same for all the muffins I make. The second part is the Wet Ingredients which determines what type of muffins you will make.
Today's recipe is for my old stand by: Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins. I make these muffins three or four times a week so they're always on hand for hungry people running out the door.

 Everybody's favourite-banana chocolate chip.

 Muffin Mix Base:

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup oats
*1/2 cup white sugar
*1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of cinnamon/nutmeg/allspice-
whatever your favourite spice is
Mix that up in a bowl

 Now Mix The Wet Ingredients:

Your wet ingredients need to equal about 3 cups of liquid. I use a large Magic Bullet cup, but a medium size Pyrex would work too.
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup of oil
1 (or 2) eggs
1 (or 2 or 3) bananas
*1 cup(ish) milk (or yogurt or sour cream)
Blend and add to Muffin Mix Base, and mix.

*ingredients with a star can be mixed in any combination, for example a 1/4 cup brown sugar-3/4 cup white sugar.

Make your life easy and spray your muffin tray with Pam, throw them in the oven at 400 for (honestly I don't know how long) but I think 15 minutes, but usually I go by-when I can smell them they're done.

How to start homeschooling: step four-wait

Trust me, I know how painfully hard it is to wait for your kid to get somewhere on their own, especially if you know it's important, and I'm not saying you'll never have to give them a push, I'm just suggesting, if you hold off on giving that push, you may not need to do it.
