I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Papaya Banana Walnut Muffins

 Protein packed muffins for when you're on the go!


Streusel topping:
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon

1 cup flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup unflavoured or vanilla protein powder (optional)
1 egg
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
1/2 cup mashed papaya
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup melted butter
zest of 1 orange
2 tbsps orange juice (optional)

First mix the streusel ingredients together, then set aside.
Combine the flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and protein powder.
In a separate bowl mix the egg, banana, papaya, walnuts, melted butter and orange zest together.
Mix the dry and wet ingredients together just until combined.
If you are using the protein powder you may need the orange juice. You're looking for a thick batter as seen in this picture, but not too thick or the muffins will be dry.

Place a heaping tablespoon of batter into each lined muffin cup and sprinkle some of the streusel, then more batter and a sprinkling of the streusel on top.

Bake at 375°F for 20-25 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.

Makes 18 medium size muffins
