These are fruity and these are healthy. I call these grab and go muffins. Ideal for a quick breakfast, to pack for kids lunchboxes or anytime snack. Made with whole wheat flour and oats, these are egg-less, loaded with not one but two berry flavors and finely chopped walnut topping to add the crunch!! I love to add different flavors to my cakes and muffins that I bake. Strawberry or any fruity essence adds on the fruity flavor of the muffin. When you have kids in the house, you have to constantly think about adding variations the food and snacks. Though kids love berries then at times they too get bored with eating fruits in same form. These berry muffins add the variation to my bakes and also add on to new snack or lunchbox ideas for kidoos and so apt for my teenager who is always in hurry to finish off the breakfast and leave for school.. And my younger takes these for his snack time ..I too enjoy these with my morning cup of tea or coffee.. healthy and wholesome treat for all!!
