I have found two really amazing recipes... well I found them, then I altered them to suit my needs and came up with something AH-MAZING! I must share them with you!

A couple of weeks ago I made these:

Pumpkin Muffins with cream cheese

2 Eggs, beaten
1/2 C pumpkin
1/2 C Almond breeze
1/4 C butter (or applesauce)
1 1/2 C Oat Flour
1/3 C Splenda
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix first four ingredients together, ad
d splenda, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. In separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt together. Mix into wet ingredients. Pour into muffin tins. Set it aside and mix the topping.

Cream Cheese Topping

3 ounces cream cheese
1 tbsp splenda
1 tbsp Almond breeze

Add a spoonful of the topping to the unbaked muffins. Bake on 400 for 20-22 minutes!

Super yummy! Super pretty to look at and they freeze really well!

After our Vegas trip this weekend, we came home to some over ripe banana's... which means... whooo hoooooo... banana bread. But not just any banana bread, the BEST, EASIEST, HEALTHIEST banana bread you have ever had. SOOOO goood, my kids can't get enough of it!

Banana Bread

2 Cups Whole Wheat flour
1 tsp Baking soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 C butter (or applesauce)
3/4 C Splenda brown sugar mixture
2 eggs, beaten
2 1/3 C over ripe banana's (I used 4 small banana's)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray bread pan with Pam baking spray. I ended up making 3 mini loaves, and 6 muffins out of this recipe (one is missing because I ATE IT). In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt. In separate bowl cream together butter, sugar. Stir in eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and bananas, add to the flour until moistened. Pour into bread pans or muffin tins. Let it sit at room temperature for 10 minutes. Bake until toothpick comes out clean.

For one large loaf bake 60-65 min
For mini loaves bake 20-22 minutes
For muffins bake 20-22 minutes

Honestly hands down the best banana bread I have ever made. My kids can't stay out of it. I froze two loaves and have already had to thaw one of them, tastes fantastic!


  1. Mmm everything looks so good! I'm not a big cream cheese fan but I'm wondering if my taste buds have changed..it looks like a good frosting!

  2. Oh Miami, I LOVE cream cheese! Gosh, this look so so good! Do you by any chance have the nutritional stats to go with these? If not, I'm sure I can figure it out:)

    Gosh, now I want that pumpkin muffin picture as my screensaver...swoon:)
