Amazing Muffins and a 7 Mile Bike Ride

Today I made a batch of fruit filled delicious muffins for breakfast; I used a recipe from the Cooking for Real show on the Food Network!! After breakfast Little Foodie went on her first bike ride on the trail without her training wheels, she did an AMAZING job she road for 7 miles and asked when we were going to do it again! A good/healthy breakfast goes a long way when you are 6 years old!!

Sunny Morning Muffins


  • 1 cup strawberries, chopped
  • 1 cup sugar, plus 2 tablespoons
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1/2 pint blueberries
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts


Special equipment: muffin tin and muffin liners

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a small bowl, mix together strawberries and 2 tablespoons sugar. Let sit 15 minutes until strawberries give off juices.

In a small bowl, mix together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg and salt.

In a large bowl, whisk together the mashed banana, eggs, oil, 1 cup sugar, strawberries, and lemon zest.

Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until combined. Do not over mix. Fold in blueberries and walnuts.

Scoop batter evenly into muffin cups. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of muffin comes out with a few crumbs but not wet, about 30 minutes. Cool on a rack to room temperature.
