1 1/3 c. all purpose flour
2/3 c. milled flaxseed
1/4c. white sugar
1/4c. packed brown sugar
2tsp. baking powder
1/2tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
sprinkle of nutmeg and cinnamon. Mix all those together in a bowl and set aside.
2 mashed banans
1/2 c. milk
3-4 tbs melted butter
Mix together the wet ingredients in a separate bowl and then add to dry ingredients. mix well and spoon into cups. bake at 350 for about 15 minutes.
Dark Chocolate Caramel Apple Crisp
Here are some other fun and yummy variations to try.
Use 1/3 cup white chocolate chips, 12 caramel squares, chopped and 1/2 cup of chopped nuts.
Use 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips, 4 crumbled graham crackers, and 1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows.
Use 1/3 cup white chocolate chips, 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts and 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut.
Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream. Amazing!
If you are a real chocolate lover you can add some extra chocolate chips on top of the crisp, as well as in the mix.
Prefer milk chocolate chips? Use 1/2 cup because they’re sweeter than the dark.
Pumpkin-Pecan Spice Cookies
"Although this recipe works great with canned pumpkin, I originally developed it because a co-worker had given me two 25-pound Hubbard squashes! I had to find some creative ways to use it and to sneak it into recipes." Debra Keil
When buying canned pumpkin, check the label to be sure it’s not pumpkin pie mix, which contains sugar and spices.
Look for silicone baking mats at stores that sell kitchen and baking items.
Try cooked winter squash in place of the pumpkin.
Pear and Ginger Muffins
Gingerroot can be found in the produce section at the grocery store. Peel before grating. Wrap the unused portion tightly in foil and store in the freezer.
Freeze leftover muffins and reheat in the microwave when ready to eat.
Deluxe Dipped Apples
For a layer of chocolate, once the caramel has cooled completely, dip the apples into melted chocolate, then nuts or desired garnish.
Place the cooled caramel apples into gift baggies, tie with a pretty ribbon or string and give as take-home favor or gift at your next party.
Do you want to know the secret to making amazing Caramel Apples? A quick dunk in boiling water! Apples often have a bit of a waxy coating. Dunking them into boiling water for about 30 seconds removes that. This way, the caramel will stick to the apples and not slide off.
To start, gather all your ingredients.
Since we want to spend time eating and not making caramel, just melt caramel candies with a touch of milk. This takes about 5 minutes.
Once the caramel is melted, let it stand for about a minute–that’s another trick to making sure the caramel stays on the apples.
Then, swirl the apples around in the caramel and allow any excess to drip back into the pan.
Now, it’s up to you…leave them be or roll in nuts, chocolate chips or even marshmallows. Anything goes!
