Happy Monday, my friends! Wow! I can't believe it's already Monday again! Last week was a great week and just seemed to fly by! I have spent alot of time in the kitchen this past week, walking past 3 huge bunches of bananas several times a day. So, for today's edition of Menu Board Monday, I thought I'd do something a bit different... Instead of a big meal, I'm simply hi-liting a great Muffin that could become the main spotlight of your "breakfast for dinner". On my menu board, I have "breakfast for dinner" at least 4 times a month. It's something we thoroughly enjoy!
The first thing that comes to my mind when I think breakfast is pancakes or waffles. But for our breakfast for dinner tonight, we are having Chocolate Banana Streusel Muffins, along with fresh cut cantaloupe and breakfast sausage...
This is a recipe that my mom and I made when I was in elementary school. It came off of a Malt-O-Meal Hot Cereal box. It uses Chocolate Malt O Meal Hot Cereal. For the longest time, our store quit carrying this and I was sad... but when I saw it last week while I was grocery shopping I just HAD to grab a box! My mouth has been watering for these muffins ever since.... they have just the perfect chocolate flavor with the moisture from the bananas and a crunchy streusel topping. I hope you enjoy them!
Chocolate Banana Streusel Muffins
From Cupboard to Cupboard
1 1/3 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup chocolate Malt-O-Meal Hot Cereal
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 bananas, mashed
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine flour & sugar. Cut in butter- reserve 1/2 cup for topping. In same bowl add muffin ingredients. Stir until moistened. Spoon into greased or paper-lined muffin tins, filling the cups 2/3 full. Sprinkle with reserved streusel mixture. Bake 18-22 minutes or until lightly browned. Let stand 5 minutes and remove from pan onto wire rack.
*I doubled this recipe because I have soooo many bananas to use. I got 36 muffins out of the recipe. So you should get 12-18 muffins, depending on how full you fill your cups and your altitude.*
