Bran and date mini muffins #RicardoRecipes


Mornings during the week are rushed in our house. Although I always say I’m going to pack the kids backpacks the night before, I never do. So in the morning I’m gathering what everyone needs for school on that given day. Because of this my kids don’t get a June Cleaver breakfast during the week. I don’t have time to scramble eggs or make chocolate chips pancakes like my kids often request. Instead, I have discovered the power of the mini muffin. For my little kids, a few mini muffins with fruit and maybe yogurt for breakfast is a hit!


As my kids are eating these muffins for breakfast and sometimes Princess Peach will take some to school for snack, I try to find recipes that are healthy. It’s harder than you think to find recipes that taste great and are packed will healthy ingredients.

I’m so happy that I was given a chance to make one of Chef Ricardos recipes for my kids. I’m always looking for new muffin recipes to change up what I’m offering my kids for breakfast and I decided to try to make his Bran and Date Muffins. Instead of making 9 large muffins like the recipe had suggested, I was able to get 26 mini muffins out of the recipe! Awesome.


I made the muffins while the kids were at school and when they came home, they were both so excited to try them. Princess Peach refers to herself as my “taste tester” and takes her job very seriously. And she should because if they don’t like it, I won’t be making it again.  Thankfully, this recipe was approved by both of them!
