I love banana bread so when I saw these Thomas’ Limited Edition Banana Bread English Muffins they immediately had to become part of my grocery purchase.
English muffins are quite a breakfast food staple, at least for me – growing up it was either toast or English muffins. Whereas, banana bread has always been a classic homemade breakfast food/snack/dessert that my family made for each other as well as family friends.I quite enjoy the two on their own and have even incorporated English muffins into pizza and banana bread flavorings into pancakes.So, needless to say when I spotted these I was completely and utterly intrigued. I just made homemade banana bread which was the same points plus equivalent.These also smelled heavenly – even through the plastic bag they’re sold in!
My 15 month old nephew was over, so I figured it was a perfect time to try one out, so I toasted one up, spritzed it with spray butter and he and I shared one. I thought it was so yummy – a modern twist on a classic. Since I toasted mine, you get that expected exterior crisp on the outside, the inside being a little bit softer. The flavor is undoubtedly banana bread (sans nuts) and I did not find the flavoring to be overwhelming or “fake”. I quite enjoyed it. You may be asking, what were my nephew’s sentiments? “Yum!”
One muffin is 4 points plus values.
Have you tried the Thomas’ banana bread English muffins?
I had some ripe bananas on the counter that needed to be put to good use. I’m very picky with bananas if they start to get brown spots on them, I don’t want to eat them so I typically let them sit to get browner so I can make a dessert with them.I had an over abundance of bananas to use up so I decided to make banana bread so I could bring a bread to my dad for Father’s Day (since banana bread is one of his favorites).
I followed the recipe exactly as listed and it was so easy to make. The most time consuming part is waiting for them to finish baking.I let them sit overnight to cool completely, wrapped one up and brought it over to my dad the next day and the remaining banana bread I kept for the house. My boyfriend is a big fan of banana bread and he was enjoying it. I had a slice and it was seriously delicious.The greatest part was 1/13th of each individual bread is 4 points plus (with the walnuts).
My dad had some banana bread later on in the day when I had given it to him, so he gave me a call to let me know it was delicious.Winning banana bread!
