The Muffin Mash

Enjoy our remake of this 1962 novelty song by Bobby "Boris" Pickett

The zombies were having fun
The party had just begun
The guests included Cloe
Carson and McClain

The scene was rockin', all were digging the mixin' 
Spoons and bowls, backed by more batter fixin' 

The kitchen-bangers had come to arrive 

With their vocal group, "The Crigger-Kicker Five"


They played the mash
They played the muffin mash 
The muffin mash
It was a oven smash 
They played the mash
It caught on in a flash
They played the mash
They played the muffin mash


We were waiting in the kitchen long before night
When our eyes beheld an eerie sight
For our muffins from the oven began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise
 They did the mash 
They did the muffin mash
The muffin mash
It was a oven smash 
They did the mash
It caught on in a flash
They did the mash
They did the muffin mash


Out from his coffee, Dad's voice did ring
Seems he was troubled by just one thing
He opened his mouth and shook his fist
And said, "Whatever happened to the muffin breakfast?" 

It's now the mash
It's now the muffin mash
The muffin mash
And it's a oven smash
It's now the mash
It's caught on in a flash
It's now the mash
It's now the muffin mash


Now everything's cool, Dad's got a muffin in hand
And my muffin mash is the hit of the land
For you, my friends, this muffin was meant too
When you get to my door, tell them the kids sent you

Then you can mash
Then you can muffin mash
The muffin mash
And do my oven smash
Then you can mash
You'll catch on in a flash
Then you can mash
Then you can muffin mash 




What a mess!  A yummy, gooey mess!  I tried to get a little too sneaky healthy; just follow the original recipe.  You will love these muffins!


Peanut Butter and Banana Muffins

1 c. firmly packed light or dark brown sugar
1/2 c. natural peanut butter
1/2 c. cauliflower puree (or carrot puree)  (*You won't even taste it: PROMISE!)
1/2 c. banana puree
1 large egg white
1 c. whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line mini-muffin pan (24) or muffin tin (12).
In large mixing bowl, mix brown sugar, peanut butter, vegetable and banana purees, and the egg white using a wooden spoon.

Put the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and stir to mix. Add to other mixture. Stir just to combine. Batter will be a little lumpy--don't over mix.
Fill muffin tins and bake until muffins are lightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the middle. (15-20 minutes) Turn the muffins out onto a rack to cool.

Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days, or wrap individually and freeze for up to one month.

So funny! I love how you adapted that song. And I love that you were taking pictures in the beginning not knowing what the messy, yummy results would be. :) Too cute!

The muffins look so yummy! I bought Deceptively Delicious a few weeks ago so I could "trick" myself into eating healthy. I don't eat veggies. at. all. I'm thinking the secret is not knowing that there is actually veggies in the recipe, but I'll still give it a whirl anyway. :)
