These bite-size banana blueberry and cinnamon mini muffins are perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack. Loved by adults and children, make a double batch because they won’t last long!
This has been one of those weeks where the weather was dreary, the office was quiet, and every day felt like it should be Friday – but it wasn’t. What a let down that was every afternoon. But, it’s been a great week overall, and today is Friday so I’m ready to relax. But, not before I share another #BrunchWeek recipe with you! And this is one that is especially favored by the kiddos. The little ones, and the grown ones, alike. My toddler and my husband both loves these. Possibly my husband more than the toddler.
Already delicious banana and blueberry mini muffins get an extra boost of flavor when Cinnamon Spice Bakery Emulsion is added to the mix. Bakery emulsions are used like and extract would be, but are made without alcohol, and have a thicker consistency and good, strong flavors! I used the cinnamon spice bakery emulsion in place of vanilla extract and ground cinnamon – two ingredients in one! And it gave just the perfect amount of cinnamon flavor to these muffins – not overpowering, and not so faint that you couldn’t tell it was there.
I was really, really pleased. And just wait to see what I made for tomorrow, using their lemon bakery emulsion!! It may or may not be perfect for Cinco de Mayo celebrations!
