banana strawberry muffins

(scroll down for more images)

We had some strawberry compote leftover from making strawberry pie. Using a similar method to the one for banana cream cheese muffins, I made little wells in each banana muffin and filled it with the strawberry mixture, then sprinkled chopped toasted salted peanuts overtop.

banana cream cheese muffins

We had some cream cheese and coronation grape jam languishing in the fridge. Using the banana cream cheese muffin method, I put a small piece of cream cheese followed by grape jam into each muffin that was made with ripe bananas, bran, cranberries and pepitas. The muffins were delicious! (Grape jam is also good with grape muffins.)

Banana Cranberry Bran Muffins just out of the oven

They're delicious on their own or with just a hint of butter.

They're also delicious with butter AND Swiss-style cheese for the overindulgent. I don't know why I took such pleasure in bucking tradition and using a fish knife to cut the muffins in half!

spinach and cheese muffins

These muffins have no sugar. They are the most delicious muffins we've had in a long time. Spinach lovers and spinach dissenters adore these muffins.

cornmeal muffins laced with Concord grapes and green chillies

We had lots and lots of Concord grapes that I picked with a "Not Far From the Tree" team. ("Not Far From the Tree" is a charitable Toronto organization that includes a residential fruit-picking program to pick fruit (with permission, of course) that would otherwise go to waste. www.notfarfromthetree.org) We used some of the grapes to make juice, some to make grape/onion/blue cheese fougasse and a few to make these fabulous cornmeal muffins.

What spectacular muffins. Adding green chillies from the garden was the perfect thing to balance the sweetness of Concord grapes. Just a few moments after they were out of the oven, we served the muffins for breakfast with a little butter and green tea - delicious!

They were equally delicious with cheddar cheese, grape jam - made with grapes picked for Not Far From the Tree, of course - and coffee. (Grape jam is terrific baked into muffins too.)

We used some of this "Not Far From the Tree" harvest of beautiful blue grapes ("Not Far From the Tree" is a charitable Toronto organization that includes a residential fruit-picking program to pick fruit (with permission, of course) that would otherwise go to waste. www.notfarfromthetree.org) to make the cornmeal muffins laced with grapes and green chillies.
