Banana Oat muffins & Monday Prep

Marni Sumbal

Welcome to my life as a dietetic intern....I wake up sometime between 4 and 4:30 am in order to be in the kitchen, bright and early, to prep food for the Lakeside Nursing Home residents.

I go from making beautiful salads to baking mouth watering deserts. I is tough but somebody has to do it :)

Today was suppose to be my muffin day for the residents but a few of my ingredients were not in stock in the kitchen. We order food every Mon and Thurs so on the order for today (which will come in tomorrow) I requested the few ingredients that were missing in the kitchen for my muffins. Because I am making 150 muffins (I had to standardize my recipe which makes 24 muffins) I need a large quantity of ingredients. Of course, I would never feel right putting together a recipe from a bag or box so I am staying true to myself and trying to use as many wholesome ingredients as I can for my muffin recipe.

I am hoping that my muffin recipe makes in on the 3-week cycle menu at the Nursing Home. I am going to do a sensory analysis tomorrow with my muffins to see if the nurses and residents (and kitchen staff) enjoy my muffins...I am crossing my fingers that they enjoy it!

Last week I made a modified version of the recipe that I will be using in the nursing home. Because the nursing home has certain recommendations for items in the kitchen, I had to change around a few of the ingredients in order to accommodate the likings of the residents (I've been told by many residents already that they don't like "healthy" food). Here is my at-home muffin recipe that I know you will absolutely LOVE! The muffins go great with a side of scrambled eggs w/ veggies or a fruits salad mixed with Greek Yogurt.
