1 Fruit = 3 Recipes | Desserts


If you have been following me on Snapchat (majasmuffin) you have already seen the recipes I am sharing with you today. I usually use bananas for a smoothie and the same amount of fruit can be put in desserts. Surely, smoothie is healthier and is good for breakfast (next food post idea maybe?) but if you know me, I am a fan of desserts, preferably fresh and home baked goods. That is why I am sharing these three simple and quick recipes with you.

Banana cookies

You’ll need:
1-2 mashed bananas, 2 eggs, 2 cups all-purpose flour, ½ cup shortening (I used butter), 1 cup white sugar, 2 teaspoons baking powder, ½ teaspoon salt

1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).
2. Cream shortening. Add sugar, eggs and banana and mix well.
3. In another bowl mix flour, baking powder and salt. Add to creamy mixture and mix well.
4. Place one tablespoon full of dough on a baking sheet. Leave 2 inches (5 cm) between each cookie.
5. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Mine were made with icing and you can find the way to make it in the original recipe here.

1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).
2. Combine bananas and sour cream.
3. In another bowl mix together margarine and sugar until smooth. Add in one egg at a time and stir well. Add vanilla extract and banana mixture.
4. Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add it into the banana mixture.
