Strawberry Banana Mother’s Day Muffins

Breakfast and Brunch

Mother’s Day is in a few days!  Are you excited? I mean, seriously, we finally get a day all to ourselves!  (Yeah, right, you say!)  Ok, well then there is no reason why we can’t enjoy a relaxing breakfast in bed prepared by our loved ones, right?  This is a super easy muffin recipe that is nearly impossible to mess up!  No Mom supervision required!  (Maybe a little).   All you moms go ahead and forward this to your children or significant other!  Meanwhile, lay back in bed on Sunday morning and anticipate these easy, moist and delicious muffins that can be made in about 45 minutes!  Easy, easy, easy!  Not your basic banana muffin, not by any means!  The strawberries add an unexpected taste treat that explode in your mouth with sweetness and flavor!  I must humbly state that these are some of the best baked treats that I have ever come up with and I think that you will agree!  All it takes is a few ripened bananas, one cup of strawberries (frozen work very well in this recipe, just let thaw for about 20 minutes, slice and drain), brown and white sugars, vanilla, one egg, a bit of butter,  baking powder, flour and that, my friends, is it!  What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than by breakfast in bed? Don’t we all deserve that on our special day?  And what better breakfast than homemade muffins and a cup of coffee or tea? So go ahead, all you hard working mothers, enjoy your special day with the special people in your life!  Happy Mother’s Day!  12 muffins
