    What a gorgeous post, lovely 🙂 I love how Dad will always quietly come through, with anything you ask. With no fuss. He’s just awesome. I need Downton Abbey in my life!!

    Dads! Yay dads. Yours sounds like one of the good ones. Also the thought of getting emotional over a Banana All-Bran Muffin made me chuckle. Bran! Ha! Thanks, Hannah.

    What a lovely post 🙂 And by the looks of it, lovely muffins – a perfect baking gift for your Dad (and Mum!) by the sounds of it. I keep meaning to try these all bran toppers but haven’t yet; perhaps this recipe will inspire me.

    I am thankful to my Dad for so much, it’s sometimes a bit emotion-provoking for me too.

    I’m happy you have such a great relationship with your dad! My dad and me didn’t have for the first 20 years of my life, but we’ve both worked on it and on learning each other. I love that my dad tries so hard and really loves me despite the fact I’m so difficult for him to get.

    Bran muffins. They sound so…so old fashioned, right? But they’re still so good.

    Lovely post and I’ll be using that recipe sometime soon too.

    My father is much harder to cook for. Not because I’m a lousy cook but because, in the heady days of Sizzler all-you-can-eat restaurants in the 1980s, he’d sigh afterwards and say, “Let me die with my mouth open under the chocolate mousse tap.”

    what parent could resist a daughter using their washing machine regularly if you turn up with such baked goods! and what daughter could resist a father who is making a doll’s house – I am still recovering from never having a dolls house as a child – though of course my parents have one for the grandkids!!! Maybe your dad will finish this one for the grandkids 🙂

    Aww I bet your dad is so proud! Happy birthday to him! 🙂

    These muffins must be delicious. I love allbran and bananas, never tried it out in muffins, great idea.

    My dad and I have been playing a lot of cribbage lately. I’ve been kicking his butt big time:) Because YUSSSSS! my parents are currently visiting. Hence the real reason why I haven’t been online much this past week;)

  15. Richa@HobbyandMore

    Aww.. so sweet:) so cool that he asked for all bran muffins:)

  16. Rach

    Those look delicious!

    Tops post and I have to try these muffins (reentering cooking phase thank goodness).

    My Dad too is amazing. He lives far away from me now (in Sydney) and one of the main reasons I’d love to come out for a long long loong holiday is to hang with my folks (we call them The Kids). My Dad is a wild one. He used to race speedboats and have big sideburns I’m proud of. Now he is building his second hot rod and destroys me at tennis and comes over to Italy to fix everything that doesnt work in my house. He also laughs at my jokes. If we could find men as cool as our dads!

    You and your dad share a beautiful relationship filled with love and bran 🙂

    Awwww… aren’t dads the very best?? My dad is super far away (back in Atlanta, GA) but we chat on Skype. I love that he always thinks it’s very important that I know the score of the baseballs games that he watches on TV. I love baseball (it’s OUR thing… me and Daddy) and I love hearing his re-cap of the games.

  21. Julia @ Boredom Abounds

    Yum, I love banana muffins – so simple, but always delicious!

    Is that the dress you got from Paris? Have I seen it in a previous post? I love these muffins. These look great. What a great, tasty, healthy recipe xx

  23. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    How sweet! I love how close your family is.

    The best thing about my dad is he is so funny. We have so many inside jokes from childhood that will never stop being hilarious to me.

  24. Hannah

    Dads like that don’t come around everyday you know; Hold on to this one, he sounds like a real keeper. I absolutely treasure the relationship I have with my dad, because it was very hard won, so I understand the emotional muffin moment completely.

  25. Alisa

    Such a cute photo! My dad loves hearty banana muffins too. What don’t I love about my dad?

    Aww, it’s lovely to hear how much you love your dad and what an awesome relationship you have.
    I think muffins for use of washing machine is a very fair trade. I think maybe he should have even helped you fold your clothes hehe ;P
