Plus, on the side of the Kroger box, there is a recipe for Honey and Spice Banana muffins. I hate bananas, but I see the recipe every single day and have been thinking about making them for awhile, so I finally just sucked it up and did it.
The verdict? I don't really know because I hate everything about bananas - the way they look, the way they smell, their weird texture, and mostly, their taste. Everyone else seemed to like them, though. The recipe says it makes 12, but they were pretty small - I think next time, I'd just make 8 larger muffins, but at around 75 calories, they are a great snack size and a good bite of relatively healthy sweet goodness - with no added sugar.
1 cup bran flakes cereal
1/4 cup skim milk unsweetened almond milk
1 cup AP flour
1/2 cup honey
1/4 1/8 cup melted margarine butter
+1/8 cup unsweetened applesauce
2/3 cup mashed banana (1 large)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
+1/4 cup pecans
Heat oven to 375. Soak cereal in milk for 5 minutes. In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients, then add cereal mixture. Beat until well mixed. Spoon into greased muffin pan, filling 2/3 full. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool 5 minutes in pan, then move to cooling racks. Enjoy!
