Berry Banana Muffins w Rosewater Glaze & Strawberry Crumb

Published , Last Updated
 |  |  | 

Mixed Berry Banana Muffins are a soft moist muffin with a light rosewater glaze drizzled over the top. I’ve added a strawberry crumb by crushing freeze-dried strawberries and sprinkling them over the glaze. The strawberries and rosewater glaze add a real pop of fruit flavour to the muffins.

I’m pleased to say I survived the first week of the kids returning to school. I  find the first week the hardest. No matter how much planning and organising I do, we still only just make the bell each day. This year I have one child in high school and one over the other side of town, still in primary school.  So my taxi service has a little bit of extra driving to do until Anais starts high school next year.

I find if I have school lunches organised in advance things run a little more smoothly. That little bit of effort I put in the night before allows time for the morning meltdowns when hats, school bags or shoes can’t be found.

I baked these berry banana muffins and once the glaze had set I packed them up into ziplock snack bags. Half the bags went in the freezer and half went into the fridge. By putting half the muffins in the freezer I know I will have recess available on a morning I haven’t planned. Also, my kids get “bored” with having the same recess each day… yes, they’re very spoiled!

The beautiful red sprinkled on top of the muffins is freeze-dried strawberries. These are a natural product with no added sugar. I found them in the dried fruit section in Woolworths, next to the snack packs of sultanas. I used a rolling pin to crush the strawberries and sprinkled the crumb over the glaze.
