Hardy Trail Mix Muffins

It’s always great to have company when baking, although I become a “no I’ll do that” for everything, it’s nice to have someone clean and prep with.

Initially these were supposed to be regular oatmeal banana muffins but with a load of ingredients around the house, how could you resist experimentation?

Using a basic muffin recipe, I substituted and added (as a chef or baker should). I have yet to start Ratio and learn all the basics of ratio cooking.

Wanting something to last a good portion of the day, it’s great to add numerous healthy alternatives to ones baking. These muffins are quite dense but does it’s job. 3 of them would keep one satisfied for a decent portion of the afternoon.
