Finn’s aunt, Sarah, first introduced me to these fruity egg muffins. She simply added some fruit to beaten eggs and baked them in muffin trays. I have altered them slightly by adding mashed banana to the beaten egg. I mashed two bananas (very ripe ones work the best) and mixed in four eggs until combined. I then filled a muffin tray with different fruits and topped with the banana and egg mixture.
I tried raspberries, blueberries, apple & cinnamon and banana & peanut butter. Both Finn and I liked the blueberry and raspberry ones the best. The juices from the berries burst into the mixture while cooking making them both aesthetically pleasing and very tasty. I definitely recommend using berries.
We have had these a couple of times for breakfast now but they would also make a good snack or a treat for after a meal. Each time we have made them Finn has told everyone that he had cake for breakfast, they are certainly a hit with him. Finn usually has eggs and some fruit for breakfast so this is just a different way of serving it up and they are a great way of using up old bananas. I have added some chia seeds to the egg mixture and have also sprinkled some cocoa on top of the raspberry version. Cocoa nibs would work well too. You could also add some crushed nuts to the top to add some texture. Enjoy!

Why not try adding some chia seeds, cocoa powder or some chopped nuts?
