While you’re home and looking for family activities plus ensuring you have healthy meals…look in your pantry and see what you can create from what you have! I bet you will have some fun getting creative, make some healthy meals, and save money by using up ingredients instead of wasting things!
I grabbed several items like unused quinoa, oats, chia seeds and flax to grind up and make a flour blend. Then, I made some healthy bananas muffins with this flour mixture. Plus, for the added nuts I used a mixture of pecans and some nut granolas that I had half used bags of.
These are very filling and fiber filled. The banana makes them moist and delicious! I didn’t have to go out and buy anything, but I was able to make over 60 “pantry” banana muffins.
Here’s the recipe!
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Search your pantry for flours or grains you need to use up.
- 2 cups of flour mixture
- 3 ripe bananas -1/4 cup grass-fed butter
- 1/4 cup milk of choice -1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp flavoring extract (vanilla, almond, orange)
- 1 egg
- 1 cup sugar (I used coconut sugar)
- 1 cup nuts or nut granola
Mix ingredients together. Make sure to line or grease muffin tins. Put into muffin tins. Bake for 20 minutes.
