Best Banana Muffins Ever !!

It is time for Secret Recipe Club reveal today, and this month I was assigned the blog, Eliots Eats. If you haven't read this blog yet, please do so as soon as you can! Debra is the writer, her husband is her inspiration, and her recipes are amazing! For the second month in a row, I choose a Banana Bread recipe. I didn't do this on purpose, but when I saw Debra's recipe for The Best Banana Bread Ever, I had to put it to the test. Another thing I love about this recipe? Coconut Oil substituted for butter. Oh, so good! I made two changes to Debra's original recipe. I left out the chopped pecans, and I made muffins instead of a loaf. Oh, and yes, they are the best banana muffins, ever!


The Best Banana Bread {Muffins} Ever
1/2 cups coconut oil (in solid form)
1 cup sugar
2 large farm fresh eggs
1 cup mashed bananas (2 or 3)
2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together your coconut oil and sugar.
 Mix until creamy.
Add the eggs one at a time. Mix until incorporated.
Add bananas and mix well.
In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda and salt.
On low speed, mix the flour into the coconut oil and
egg mix. Just mix until incorporated. Do not over mix.
Spray mini muffin pan. Bake muffins for 10-15 minutes.
Remove from pan and let cool for 10 minutes.
Enjoy your muffins!

Thanks Debra for a great recipe!

Banana Nana Cheesecake!

It is Improv Cooking Challenge day and January's two ingredients are banana and nutmeg! Aren't those great ingredients? So many recipes and ideas came to mind, that, as usual, I had a hard time deciding what to make. I decided on this creamy Banana Cheesecake! I crunched up some left over sugar cones for the crust, added nutmeg to the batter, and made the cheesecakes in mini pans. I think they turned out fantastic!


 Banana Nana Cheesecake
Crust
10 Sugar Cones
4 tablespoons Butter, melted

Filling
3- 8 ounce Cream Cheese, softened
2/3 cup Sugar
2 tablespoons Cornstarch
3 Eggs
3/4 cup Mashed Banana (about 2)
1/2 cup Heavy Cream
2 teaspoons Vanilla
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
sliced Banana

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place the sugar cones in the food processor, and pulse
until finely crushed. Place the crumbs in a bowl, add your melted
butter and mix together. Press the mix into a 10" springform pan
or 6 small pans. Refrigerate.
Beat the cream cheese in a mixing bowl until creamy.
Add your sugar and cornstarch and blend with cream cheese.
Add your eggs and mix them in.
Mix in your bananas, heavy cream, and vanilla.
Incorporate your nutmeg into the mix.
Place your pans on a baking sheet.
Pour your batter into your pans.
Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 
200 degrees and bake for 45-50 minutes for the small pans
and 1 hour and 15 minutes for the large pan. The cheesecakes
are done when the when the center is almost set.
Loosen the edges around the cheesecakes, 
and set them on a cooling rack. Once they are completely 
cooled, remove the sides.
Refrigerate for 6 hours. Before serving, let the cheesecake stand 
at room temp for 15 minutes. During that standing time,
whip your whipping cream with a mixer on high speed. 
Add your sugar and whip until stiff peaks appear.
Garnish with dollops of whipped cream and banana.
Enjoy!
