As I was looking at the fruit bowl this morning I saw the very brown banana’s and decided it was banana blueberry muffin making time. I had all the ingredient for our favorite Banana Flax Bread so away I went mixing things up. Little did I know that the hubs used all the blueberries in yesterdays oatmeal. Oh dear. What’s a mom of kids who like hidden treasures in their muffins to do? Here’s what I did, I had a box of fruit flavored snacks so I popped those in. Boy were the kids surprised and so excited! Crisis averted. Breakfast scarfed by all.
All you need to do is make some Banana Flax Bread. We like to use whole wheat flour. Grease a muffin pan. Pour a few pouches of fruit snacks into the mix and fill the muffin cups 3/4 of the way and cook as usual. I thought the fruit snacks would melt, but they kept their shape and were fun little tasty treasures.
