After surgery - my face so swollen.
Yesterday, I felt well enough to make a batch of banana nut muffins. The doctors are wanting me to gain some weight. Not so easy to do when you don't feel like eating, and, I don't know if it's all the meds I have been taking or what, but nothing taste really great. Healing is in the process. I will be better than what I was, it will happen.
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
1 teas. vanilla
3 bananas, mashed
2 cups flour
1 teas. baking soda
1/2 teas. salt
1/2 cup nuts
Cream together margarine, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Mix flour, soda, and salt. Add 1/2 flour mixture to creamed mixture and mix. Next add 1/2 bananas and mix. Then add last half of flour mixture, mix, and add last half of bananas and mix. Add nuts. Bake in lightly floured bread or muffin pans in 350 degree oven until toothpick comes out clean. Best if not over-baked.
Note: I sometimes add coconut, cinnamon and nutmeg.
