Clean Rhubarb Strawberry Muffins {Recipe}

Yesterday, I gave you the low down on Clean Eating.  And last week I told you how I had picked up rhubarb for the first time and was looking for a recipe to experiment with.  Well I found the perfect one over at CDKitchen.com and adapted it into a clean recipe.

I’m so glad that I’m stepping out of my comfort zone with food, because I really enjoy the taste of rhubarb.  I have some left and am thinking of making jam with it.  Off to peruse the net for another recipe.

Have you tried any new foods lately?

Comfort Food

There’s something about an imminent natural disaster that gets me in the kitchen concocting dishes.   Now, I’m no Julia Child and my family aren’t stuck up foodies.  So my dishes aren’t exceedingly complicated, but they are yum, just the same.

In preparation for Hurricane Irene, I whipped up a batch of banana muffins.  I came across this recipe on one of my recipe go-to sites, www.allrecipes.com.

Simple Banana Muffins

  • 1 ½ cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 large bananas – mashed
  • ¾ white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup of melted butter

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat muffin pan with non-stick spray or use paper liners.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda & salt.  Set aside.
  3. Combine bananas, sugar, egg & melted butter in a large bowl. Fold in flour mixture & mix until smooth.  Scoop into muffin pans.
  4. Bake mini-muffins for 10-15 minutes or regular muffins for 25-30 minutes.

Now, when Irene hits our area, our bellies will be full and happy.
