I love baking and creating new recipes and I have come up with a delicious and nutritious recipe for Strawberry and Coconut mini muffins. I love having a fresh snack after school for not only me but my children as well. They are coming home after a really long day of school and bus rides and I want to have something home made to give them.
These muffins have a surprise ingredient incorporated into the recipe – Carnation Breakfast Essentials in vanilla We have been a long time favorite of Carnation Breakfast Essentials because it really helps this full time working mom of 3 with getting breakfast streamlined.
You can make so many recipes with Carnation Breakfast Essentials like smoothies and smoothie bowls are add to a favorite recipe (pancakes, waffles, etc) for a nutritional boost. I created these mini muffins from the strawberry flavor but they are also available in chocolate and vanilla. (My favorite for smoothies!)
