tinkered muffins

One of my favorite things about summertime is the abundance of my favorite fruits: blueberries, nectarines, and watermelon! I have a super-easy muffin recipe to share. Not many ingredients needed and not long in the oven.

Tinkered Berry Muffins
2 eggs
2 cups Bisquick
3/4 cup quick oats
2/3 cup sugar
2 mashed bananas*
1/4 cup milk
1 cup berries

Prep muffin tin with cooking spray or cupcake liners
Mix all ingredients except berries
Fold berries in last
Bake at 375 for 20 minutes

*If you want to skip the bananas, double the milk to 1/2 cup

I like to sprinkle the tops with cinnamon before baking

Light and consistently yummy.

Makes a nice self-serve breakfast, too, for boys who seem to wake up earlier in the summer than they do all school year. {Explain?}

My blogging time will be very catch-as-catch-can over the summer but I hope to catch as many moments to visit as possible. I did manage to get my Paris-themed swap boxes ready. The photo above is a sneak-peek for my swap-peeps.

Thanks so much to visitors at my the Where Bloggers Create II party post. This is such an enjoyable and inspiring happening. I look forward to more party hopping!

Dang! Wish I had some Bisquik on hand. I'd make these up right away. But the again, I've been making a lot of banana muffins lately. I probably need to give the oven a break. :) Will keep the recipe and make them over the summer. My kids oddly have been sleeping a little later than usual. This is the first summer they've done that. I so enjoy waking earlier than they do and starting my day off in quiet way. Enjoy your summer time fun! Best wishes, Tammy

The pictures are so beautiful that they make me want to go cook...and I am not a morning person! It looks like a versatile recipe, too.

I am just finishing my Paris swaps today and sending them out. I love decorating matchboxes. My friends think I am mad!!!

Lori said...

Elyse, those sound so yummy...i love your cupcake liners too, very cute...your "puff mommy" comment on my hair cut post cracked me up:)

Elyse, those boys wake up precisely because it's summer, and something has to throw a wrench in mama getting to sleep in! I don't really know why that works out, but I remember how it went when my girls were young. Those blueberries look so good. I managed to have them with strawberries on cereal for breakfast and lunch! I'm not very creative with food, obviously!
