I’m having serious cooking and baking withdrawal. The wedding and our imminent honeymoon (read: we are waking up in Paris today!) aren’t leaving much time for my favorite pastime and I find myself staring longingly at the stove. It doesn’t help that my refrigerator only has three things in it: butter, yogurt and eggs.
A few days before I left for our wedding, inspiration (and a strong desire to clear out the fridge) hit me and I whipped up these Pumpkin Banana Bran Muffins. They are moist with a subtle pumpkin flavor punctuated with sweet, plump raisins. Darn good.
They were the perfect easy morning breakfast for the crazy days leading up to the wedding madness, AND, best of all, they are Wedding Fairy approved. Not that we have to answer to her anymore!
Who decides to plan a 16 day honeymoon in Europe 1 short month before her wedding? [Hint: probably the same person who bakes 400 mini pecan pies for her wedding guests.] But, like the tassies, I am so glad we did!!! It’s been years since I’ve strolled through the streets of Paris and I’m beside myself with the excitement of being able to share one of my favorite places with my new Husband!
Best of all? The Wedding Fairy is not invited! Crêpes, baguettes, fromage, macarons and chocolat here we come!
These Pumpkin Banana Bran Muffins are packed with wholesome goodness and flavor! I suggest you follow my lead and slather some cream cheese in the middle. Cream cheese takes these muffins from exceptional to shockingly delicious!
