I am trying to get back on the wagon of staying away from grains. I am not strictly Paleo but my body just appreciates less grain and dairy. I have to admit, though, this “corn-fed gal from Indiana” (that is actually a song) has to have her Amish popcorn. The adopted southerner in me has trouble passing by cheese grits too. But I digress.
I have a Pinterest Board entitled, “The Way I Should Eat” but most of it consists of recipes that are made to make me feel like I am not missing out on anything. One of those is MICROWAVE CINNAMON RAISIN ENGLISH MUFFIN. Yes, you read that right. I have made versions of this several times in the past week. It totally hits the bread-craving button. If you don’t like cinnamon or raisins, just change them out. Click here for the original post from Big Man’s World. But I am going to show you my spin on this insanely quick and easy recipe. But not only will you get that, keep scrolling for the main attraction!
One difference between mine and the original is the use of smashed banana. I don’t know about you but I always have rotten bananas in my freezer. I can’t stand food waste so I keep them on the off-chance I will make banana bread. Anyway, use those, if you have them. They make the muffin sweeter than with applesauce. But the flavor is more pronounced so they aren’t the best choice for the savory version. Also, you can add anything you want to these. I love Publix’s Breakfast Bread which has dried everything in it. Craisins, and dried apricots would make these amazing!
