Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
This was very good. I read a bunch of other reviews and substituted several things to make them healthier. I ground the oats in a coffee grinder (a good idea) I used half and half of all purpose and whole wheat flour, plus one tablespoon for high altitude (it is NOT needed). I also did half and half on white and brown sugar. I followed the salt in the recipe and think that it could probably use a whole tsp, without they are a little too sweet. I used 1%milk and substituted unsweetened applesauce for the oil. I used 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and think that I would go for a whole tsp next time. I used 3 medium bananas as suggested and that was a perfect amount. One I had in the freezer and was black on the outside and the other 2 were just overripe on the counter. It was really easy to defrost the frozen banana (I soaked in very warm water to defrost, don't microwave) but I made sure to drain the extra liquid before mixing with the other bananas. The flavor of my muffins was really great. I did add cinnamon at the end and would add more the next time. My muffins needed a little more of something to make the muffins slightly more moist. They weren't dry, but just didn't have the perfect consistency I was looking for. I think I will use a whole cup of milk next time. The recipe fills 12 muffin tins perfectly to end up with that beautiful height.

Turkey Veggie Meatloaf Cups

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
I can't say that this was great. It did smell amazing while it was baking though. The major flaw in the recipe is lack of seasoning. It definitely needs salt and pepper, if not something like a little chili powder or Cayenne pepper. It was really bland. My major fault in this is that I used white meat ground turkey. Definitely use dark meat, or less lean (don't use extra lean) because it's REALLY dry as is. With a few modifications, this could easily be a 4 1/2 star recipe. I hate when people rate recipes as a 5 after their modifications- it's misleading. I also think that this would actually work with something like a Boca burger.

I think plain is just okay, but if you add some chocolate chips inside these bad boys before you fry them, you will have a whole different kind of yummy. With the chocolate, you don't miss having sugar in the dough and the powdered sugar is still the perfect topper. This way they are balls of warm chocolate yumminess!
