Banana Date Oat Muffins

This recipe was made in the months of muffin mania madness. More specifically, during the “stay at home” order that was in effect and still is in some places. Banana Date Oat Muffins are perfect for a quick grab-n-go breakfast. Easy, flavorful and moist. If your family are not fond of dates,  substitute golden raisins or dried cranberries.

Memorial Day

It’s hard to believe that it’s Memorial Day weekend! A weekend that usually signals the end of the school year and the start of summer vacation. Our god-son Erik, graduated from high-school this year. We had made plans to attend his graduation in South Dakota. But like so many plans, the COVID-19 pandemic changed that.

For the high-school graduates of 2020, graduation was far from spectacular. A walk through an empty auditorium, a walk across an empty stage to receive your diploma. So sad! Erik was valedictorian of his class and is on his way to Minnesota. He’ll attend summer classes at the University of Minnesota, where he’ll be attending college this fall. Your future awaits you Erik!

Extremely Popular

More than a century later, baking powder remains an invaluable ingredient in kitchens around the world. Dr. Oetker went on to develop more products. Pudding mixes, baking mixes and vanilla sugar are all extremely popular. For example, vanilla sugar is used extensively in baking, more so than extracts, in European countries. Vanillin-Zucker can be purchased on Amazon.

Family Owned

A family-run business, Dr. Oetker ranks among the leading brand manufacturers in the German food industry. Vanilla sugar is most often used as a flavored sweetener in baked goods. It can be used as a finishing touch when sprinkled on warm cakes, pies and cookies. Likewise, vanilla sugar is a great addition to frostings, whipped cream and my favorite, smoothies. One teaspoon of vanilla extract is equivalent to one teaspoon vanilla sugar.
