Sunrise Muffins

These muffins got scarfed up by the kiddo's...I only got to eat 1!  So if that doesn't tell you how wonderful they are......  These will certainly put you in a good mood in the morning (especially if you are NOT a morning person like me!!):)

Sunrise Muffins
Recipe from Or So She Says

2 cups flour
1 Tablespoon poppy seeds
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 ripe bananas, pureed or finely mashed
1 egg
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup oil
3 teaspoons orange zest

Glaze:
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup orange juice (1 squeezed orange)
1 teaspoon orange zest
1 teaspoon vanilla

Heat oven to 375 degrees.  Line a muffin tin with 12 cupcake liners.  In a medium bowl, combine flour, poppy seeds, baking powder, and salt.  In another medium bowl, smash/puree bananas, add egg, sugar, oil, and orange zest.  Mix well.  Pour the flour mixture in and combine everything together.  Spoon the batter into the muffin cups (use a 2 tablespoon cookie scoop...so much faster and less messy!), and then bake for about 20 minutes.

Now it's time to prepare the glaze.  Stir together powdered sugar, orange juice, orange zest, and vanilla.  When the muffins are done baking, poke some holes in the top with a fork and then drizzle the glaze over the top.

It might be a little easier getting out of bed in the morning if you know you'll be waking up to these!!:)
