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!

Banana Cranberry Muffins

Bursts of tart, juicy cranberries are dotted throughout these sweet banana muffins with a hint of almond.


Streusel Topping:
3 tbsps chopped walnuts
2 tbsps ground almonds
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp light olive oil

1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

1 egg
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (3-4 bananas)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tsp almond extract

1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries

First mix the streusel topping ingredients together and set aside.
In a large bowl mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt together. In another bowl beat the egg, mashed banana, melted butter and almond extract together.
Now add the banana mixture to the dry ingredients and mix just until combined, easily done by hand no need for a mixer.
Finally fold in the cranberries.
Take a heaping tablespoon and deposit in each paper lined muffin tin. Then sprinkle about half the streusel over each muffin. Dollop the remaining batter on top and sprinkle the rest of the topping evenly.
Bake at 375°F for 20-25 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
Makes 12 medium muffins
