Banana Bran Muffins

recipe from the kitchen of Lee Dick

This is a perfect muffin to whip up and throw in the fridge for those busy morning when you need to grab something while running out the door!  You also can bake a big batch and freeze for later.
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup oat bran
1/4 cup ground flax seed
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/8 cup wheat germ (I did not have on hand so used extra bran and flaxseed so make up the difference)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 egg
3 tbls skim milk
1/4 cup canola oil (could use unsweetened applesauce)
3 bananas, mashed
1/2 cup raisins or any dried fruit
Preheat oven to 375 F. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray. Mix all above ingredients together.  Pour into muffin tins and bake for 20 minutes.

Until next time…
look good, feel good, do good

Memory Lane…1 year Anniversary of Sara B Consulting Blog

Can you believe it!?! It’s been one whole year since I created this blog. My hopes were that at least my family would look at it and appreciate the recipes, nutrition bites, and sunshine I share. I had no idea what other impact it would have. Today I have 38 official followers with many more people emailing and facebooking me on a daily basis with questions/comments about recipes and health. LOVE IT!
Some tell me how they are inspired by the blog…. it is actually them who inspire me.
I appreciate all who have tried to implement health into their lives and even more into their families’.

Today we are going to take a trip down memory lane and look at some of my favorite moments and recipes this year.

Tis the season for tailgating! Seasoned pretzels, mini muffins

The big game is this weekend…ISU vs Iowa…go Cylcones!
I love to tailgate for many reasons…great fall weather, exciting football, friends and family, good drinks, oh and the food. I try to bring a few “healthier” options amongst the sweets and salt.

Give these a try at your tailgate for a for sure touchdown 🙂
Tailgate Pretzels
20 oz pretzels (1 bag)
1 c olive or canola oil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cayenne
1 package Hidden Valley Ranch dry packet
mix sauce together and pour over pretzels
divide into two pans
bake at 200 degrees for 1 1/2 hours, stir ever 20 min (although me being impatience only bake them for about an hour)
