Quick & Easy


Need a super quick and easy breakfast? These are your go to muffins. They are great because it is a banana muffin base with the option to add any mix-in that you like. They also have very little sugar in the recipe which is nice because you are able to pick up the sweetness from the fruits instead. I picked strawberries and blueberries since both were starting to go bad. I made these last Sunday morning and they were a delicious accompaniment to our scrambled eggs & fruit.

Strawberry Banana Blueberry Muffins

Yield: about 10 muffins


2 c. sifted all-purpose flour

3 tablespoons sugar

2 ½ teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

1 egg, beaten

1 c. mashed ripe banana

¼ c. milk

2 tablespoons melted butter or oil

½ c. strawberries, chopped

½ c. blueberries

For the topping

1 tablespoon dry oats

2 tablespoons dark brown sugar

2 tablespoons finely chopped almonds


Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix remaining ingredients, minus the strawberries & blueberries, in a separate bowl. Toss the blueberries & strawberries in the flour mixture. Add wet mixture all at once to flour mixture, stirring just to moisten.

Fill greased muffin pans 2/3 full. Top each muffin with a small amount of the dry topping.

Bake 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
