Delicious Banana Berry Muffins

If you look in your freezer, you’ll likely find frozen fruit. Try mixing your berries and bananas together for some delicious banana berry muffins.

If you take a look in my freezer, you’ll find frozen berries, and a ton of bananas… and well a lot of other frozen things. I know I am not the only one with a large storage of frozen bananas on hand… am I? Like anyone, I needed to use them up, and I needed to get rid of the last of the partridgeberries that I had. 

I always try to have baked goods on hand for lunch bags, and snacks! My hubby loves to snack. Between muffins, loaves, and cookies, there is always something for him to grab and go {I’m all about the “grab and go” method} to add to his lunch bag.

For this delicious banana berry muffin recipe, I used frozen bananas and frozen partridgeberries. These muffins are also really tasty using blueberries. 

BANANAS

Bananas for baking, fresh or frozen.

Like I mentioned above about frozen bananas, I am sure we all have fresh bananas kicking around too. My husband loves bananas, he eats one just about every day. And well, I do too. From adding them to my cereal, yogurt, and more, it’s a staple on our grocery list. 

Once they become very ripe {brown and soft}, it is when they make for great baking. They add some extra sweetness to baked goods like banans loaves and of course, muffins. 

DELICIOUS BANANA BERRY MUFFINS

Simple ingredients, quality taste; breakfast on-the-go.

I know we all have those mornings where we are rushing out the door because our alarm clock didn’t go off. Which leaves us in a crunch as to what to have for breakfast. Well, why not grab a muffin to-go. 

These muffins are moist and bursting with flavour. One thing about this recipe is that you can things, like nuts, or chocolate chips to “spice” it up a little. 

One thing you will want to note about this recipe is that before you pop these muffins into the oven, you top them with a little cinnamon-sugar mixture. This little mixture carmelizes the sugar-coated top as the muffins bake, giving these muffins some added sweetness and spice without going overboard. 

The trick with these, and any muffins, cakes or loaves for that matter, is to make sure you do not to over mix your batter… over-mixing can make things drier {crummy}.

I love my morning coffee, and I usually have an afternoon pick me up. I enjoy having something “sweet” with my afternoon coffee. I made these muffins with “cleaner” ingredients to help me stay on track with my health and wellness goals! #bonus 

These delicious banana berry muffins make a great breakfast or snack!
