The Fruit Lovers Muffin


Our bananas are starting to turn brown, so you know what that means... its time for another banana bread recipe.

My family loves my banana bread.  I have featured it several times on the blog.  Here is my blueberry banana bread that I made last summer after blueberry picking.   I have also made banana chocolate chip muffinsbanana strawberry muffins.

This week Meijer  had several types of fruit on sale.  I bought blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and cherries.  I also bought a few peaches earlier in the week at Kroger. (though those are gone now)   I wondered how a banana muffin would tasted with several types of fruit.I used the basic banana bread recipe that I use as the base for all my other recipes.    In addition to the banana,  I added 3 handfuls of blueberries and several large strawberries.   I debated on adding some of the cherries or raspberries, but thought it might  have too much fruit if I added those too.

 I decided that three types of fruit was enough to try  for this batch.   Every muffin had a lot of fruit as I spooned them into the cupcake pan.

Fresh out of  the oven.  They turned out the perfect shade of brown.

These will be perfect for Sunday breakfast, but I had to try one while it was warm.
The muffin I tried was exploding with fruit inside.  I added a little bit of light butter, and thought it was delicious!   You will definitely get your fruit servings in for the day with these muffins.
