Blueberry, Banana & White Chocolate Chip Muffins

Blueberry, Banana & White Chocolate Chip Muffins - perfect for Mother's Day! @FabFood4All

Today I made these Blueberry, Banana & White Chocolate Chip Muffins which would be perfect for kids (or grown-ups) to make for Mother’s Day. It turns out I have made similar before but these have a white chocolate drizzle glaze so look prettier and more befitting a special occasion!

My kids keep asking me what I want for Mother’s Day and I have asked for the same thing, a pie bird for a few years now so I’m hoping (now I’ve told my son where he can get it) that this will be the year! As my daughter is a gifted artist I have asked her to draw or paint me something as a picture from her is far better than anything money can buy (apart from the pie bird or course). The fixation with the pie bird comes from memories of going for lunch at my grandmother’s house as a kid and I was always totally fascinated with this funny looking thing seemingly whistling from the middle of whatever we were having. So I want one just for nostalgia’s sake!

Another gift I always enjoy giving and receiving is spring bedding plants, nothing cheers the soul like a tub full of beautiful flowers. Though these days I wish I had someone to plant them as I seem to have less and less time for the garden and I could be guilty of having a tray of pansies in my back garden that never got planted last autumn – oops!

Anyway back to the muffins, my hubby (who doesn’t like or ever eat blueberries) loved them and my son gave them 10 out of 10, I forgot to ask my daughter but as she ate 2 I think that’s another thumbs up! I do hope you make these Blueberry, Banana & White Chocolate Chip Muffins or drop a hint to your kids to make them for you on Mother’s Day as I’m sure you’ll love them. Do tell me in the comments what you like to receive on Mother’s Day! or what your favourite cake is!
