Banana Oat Muffins
Recipe from Confessions of a Bright-Eyed Baker

No one can say no to a homemade muffin, especially if it is banana oat.  Overly ripe bananas are best for this recipe because they have the highest sugar so yield the best flavored muffins.  The oats add texture and extra fiber.  This recipe is dairy-free and gluten-free.

Blueberry Lemon Cake

You always need something sweet on your Easter table to counter the savory dishes.  This blueberry lemon cake is light, mildly sweet and sings spring. The cake is flavored with fresh lemon juice and zest as well as the glaze.  The blueberries burst with juice with each bite.
