Banana and Peanut Butter Muffins

Lethargy has kicked in...I have managed to lose half a stone (yay!) with my militant gym routine and then this week it's gone downhill. Last night we both made our excuses and this afternoon he couldn't be bothered and then we both ended up napping. I have only left the sofa to make these bad boys....

 Banana muffin recipe is found here but I added two tablespoons of peanut butter at the wet stage and a good sprinkling of cinammon with the dry ingredients. I can't seem to have banana without cinammon - it's surely a must? The worked well and I do believe they will be even better tomorrow for school - yum!
In other news...we are busy (last minute) planning our road trip to California. In 22 days we will be boarding our plane for LA. Cannot wait! Had a sudden urge to hire a camper van as felt this would save us on accomodation. I got really into the idea as I found cuties like this to travel in. However they were all booked out :( Gutted! Maybe next time...if there will be one.
So I came up with idea of making a little book of ideas, plans and places to see. I am planning to make it prettier by covering it in a collage of old maps and retro pics.
So guys, any tips, hints or ideas for places to see or things to do in California? Especially ideas for good cupcakeries, diners and scrapbook stores would be much appreciated.


  1. Hiya Mel,
    I'm sorry I've not been around for a while, my little ones keep me busy and blogging takes a bit of a back seat [although I have been scrapping woohoo!!]
    Those muffins you've mad look delicious - but as I'm being a really good girl with what I'm eating i had to scroll past them really quick.
    I am so jealous of your upcoming holiday - can I come please, please, please, I'm a trained nail technition and beauty therapist so I'm sure I'd come in useful :):) - have a fab time and take lots of piccies, I love the idea of the place to visit/places youve been book, it's great to take notes while your enjoying your holiday rather than trying to remember everything when you return home.
    Oh and one more thing, I've been having a read through your blog to see what I've missed and not ony are your LO's great but your photography is fantastic - you've inspired me to try something other than auto [have to say I'm a little scared about this]
    Have a great evening -hun - Ju x
