Looking for a quick and delicious breakfast idea? These Banana Walnut Breakfast Muffins with Fruit and Honey will do the trick!
I love muffins for breakfast and I’m pretty sure many of you do too!
We were headed off for a long day of soccer, so I whipped up a quick breakfast muffin recipe. This recipe can be mixed and matched with any combination of fruit you have around and I had some banana’s heading south really fast.
I had some of the new Smucker’s® Fruit and Honey Fruit Spread I thought would be good smeared on a warm muffin, but before I knew it, I was adding a small dollop on top of each muffin to be baked right in.
Banana Walnut Breakfast Muffins
The J.M Smucker’s Company recently asked me to create something unique with their new product that my family would enjoy. Adding a new topping to their favorite muffins would be a fun surprise.
We happily munched on a couple of these on our way to the soccer field. The added Smucker’s Fruit and Honey gave it the perfect added sweetness I was looking for on an early Sunday morning.
Once I got home, I thought that mixing butter with the spread would also be delicious to slather on a warmed up muffin and I was right…… again!
This buttery sweet spread would be great on toast too! It’s a fun twist that’s easy to make for any breakfast bread. Of course, it’s perfect all on its own! I can’t wait to try it on a piece of sourdough toast. Mmmmm
Back to the muffins!
As I mentioned, this is one of those recipes that you can mix and match your ingredients with whatever you have on hand. The base recipe stays the same, but the 2 cups of fruits can be bananas, pumpkin, apples, zucchini…. you get the picture.
Adding a dollop of the jam right to the top of each muffin before baking felt like such a genius move, even though it’s such a simple idea. It’s an easy way to bump an ordinary muffin up a couple of notches.
This stuff is smooth.
I used a silicone muffin pan to make it easier for the muffins to pop out since I knew they’d be overflowing a bit. The fruit spread gave the muffins a glazed topping of sweetness. Some of it oozed off, but I think that’s because I overfilled the muffin pan.
I sprinkled a few oats to the top for texture and I’m thinking they look just like a bakery muffin.
A girl can dream!
If you’re on the run, just grab and go.
But if you’re serving these up at home, then take a moment and make up a quick batch of the Fruit and Honey Butter Spread. You’ll be happy you did!
