Bananaberry Muffins

Last Saturday was my fiancé’s birthday. I planned a nice mellow day for the both of us. I made him breakfast and dinner. We went out to lunch and I took him on a fun little outing at some part during the day. I will post photos on some other aspects of his day later this week. Below are the Bananberry Muffins I made him for breakfast. He really liked them. I did too but I think there is much improvement for me to make in the future.

{Mixing the wet and dry ingredients}

{It was very hard not to eat all the strawberries as I cubed them – lol}

{Adding the berries to the batter}

{Ready for the oven!}

{Viola! Breakfast is served! This was my helping. I eat like a bird}

Here is the recipe for those willing to try it.
