The classic banana oatmeal flavor combination gets a bit more interesting with the addition of your favorite candy bar. Caramel, chocolate and a cookie crunch make these four ingredient Twix Banana Oatmeal Muffins taste like luscious bites of Bananas Foster with a hint of chocolate.
It’s hard to believe that Halloween is a week from today. Where has October gone? I finally went and purchased a trunk load of candy for trick-or-treaters at Costco this morning. I’ve heard that if the weather is nice, houses in our neighborhood get 300+ kids ringing their doorbells for candy. I totally believe it as even last year when it was pouring rain we were passing out candy like there was no tomorrow.
There’s only one thing that I don’t like post-Halloween. The endless amount of candy that my children have brought back home with them. They enjoy a few pieces the night of and a piece a day afterwards but then it just sits in a bowl and taunts me and takes up valuable kitchen counter space. Last year, I decided to use it to create my Halloween Dessert Pancakes. This year, I came up with a new plan.
This plan just happens to include candy bars for breakfast. You’re down with that, right? Thought so! That’s why the day after Halloween, I’ll be serving these Twix Banana Oatmeal Muffins. These muffins use only four ingredients, including three cups of my Homemade Muffin Mix. A quick spin in the mixer and they’re in the oven before you know it! The classic banana oatmeal flavor combination gets a bit more interesting with the addition of sliced Twix candy bars. Caramel, chocolate and a cookie crunch make these muffins taste like luscious bites of Bananas Foster with a hint of chocolate. In muffin form, obviously.
And, please tell me I’m the only one that instantly thinks of this Seinfeld episode with the mere mention of a Twix. Perhaps these muffins belong in a candy muffin line-up all their own!
Here’s to making a dent in the Halloween candy that will litter your home on November 1st and the days after. At least now you’ll have the perfect breakfast to face the day and the many foil wrappers that you’ll face!
