So I'm in a total rut with Dp's breakfasts. I used to make English muffins, one side cream cheese one side peanut butter. Then he got tired of them. I switched to bagels, same toppings or with jelly in the place of cream cheese. Good for a while then they too got old. So I started making an egg/cheese bagel. Then I added up the calories in one of them...wow! 500! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yikes">: Every once in a while I'll make a loaf of quick bread, more for snacks but...they seems to go over well and I can half/freeze it so it's not like he has to et the same thing each day all week long (as if I'd let it live in the breadbox that long! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> )<br><br><b>What's your FAVORITE quick bread ?! I made a orange & almond one yesterday....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Eat">:</b>

Coconut bread (GF-CF, vegan, etc.)<br>
Banana bread smells so good when it's baking<br>
Cranberry-Walnut<br><br>
I'm getting hungry.<br><br>
I make a batch of English muffins about once a week - but I vary them - rye, pumpernickel, wheat. And I've made cranberry cinnamon too (my favorite before starting my elimination diet <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">). And you can put butter and honey on it, peanut butter and honey, jelly, etc. So I think they're pretty versatile. Muffins can be frozen pretty easily, instead of making it into bread. And they're quick to make in the morning too. Carrot cake muffins.... peach coconut muffins... even bran muffins... I love to bake.<br><br>
I think I'll go make some coconut bread!

I LOVE sweet breads. Banana and pumpkin raisin are my favorites. DD is egg allergic and I love that they turn out just as good without eggs!

Zucchini or pumpkin. Or orange-cranberry. Or blueberry-lemon. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
We also like morning glory muffins (which you could do as bread, too) -- shredded apple, pineapple, carrot, raisins. Some folks put coconut in those too.

This thread is making me hungry...<br><br>
I have some bananas over there on the counter getting brown and soft, just begging to be baked... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy"><br><br>
I love the ideas here. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/notes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="notes">: I always make banana bread or muffins just b/c I have the overripe bananas. but I'm bored with that and would like to make others. I love the idea of muffins to have on hand for snacks.

You know, I've tried it before, and it seems like they kind of sunk to the bottom and made it a little gooey.

Dust them with flour before you fold them in. Also, using mini's makes the chocolate more subtle.

Holy cow! 1 1/4 cups of sugar, with all that fruit too? Do you use that much or do you reduce it? That just seems like alot.

My blog in my sig has the recipes in it. Except the coconut bread. I guess I haven't put that one in their yet. I made GFCF, egg free, banana muffins yesterday and I didn't think they came out good at all. Seemed very gluey. I left them there on the counter because I didn't feel like throwing them out. I unwrapped one today and looked at and it was perfect. Very strange!<br><br>
The coconut bread recipe has disappeared. I just searched the kitchen.<br><br>
Here's the <a href="http://www.kathysrecipebox.com/?p=124" target="_blank">carrot cake</a> recipe.<br><br>
And here's the <a href="http://www.kathysrecipebox.com/?p=22" target="_blank">English Muffin</a> recipe.<br><br>
I love quickbreads. I love any bread. This elimination diet is really putting a crimp in my style.<br><br>

I make the Morning Glory muffins, and it's basically the same recipe posted on AllRecipes. I only use half the oil called for and replace the rest with unsweetened applesauce. I cut the sugar to between 3/4-1 cup and half of that is brown sugar. I've cut the apples, not shredded them, but I think I'm going to try the shredding, as I don't really like the big apple chunks.

Like I said, I just use that recipe as a base, and alter it each and every time depending on what fruit I have, and what kind of sweetener I use. I also do not use white sugar -- many of the sweeteners I use are not as sweet and the recipe would therefore depend on which I used and whether it was a dry or wet sweetener.<br><br>
There are a LOT of recipes out there for morning glory muffins and they are all different. Search on Allrecipes or Google to find one you like better.<br><br>
