Celebrate Mother's Day with this blueberry muffin bars recipe!

Mother’s Day is slowly sneaking up on us (it’s May 11th!) and soon you’ll be celebrating your moms and perhaps even be celebrated! There are plenty of ways to encourage and honor the motherly figures in your life, but what’s a more fun way to celebrate than with food??

I headed to Publix® last night to look for inspiration for a recipe that would be perfect for a Mother’s Day breakfast in bed. Betty Crocker® carries lots of different mixes that would make it easy for husbands and kids to whip up something yummy and sweet. I grabbed the Blueberry Muffin mix and thought, “Mmm, muffins. But how can we spruce them up a little bit?”. I decided to throw in a few fresh blueberries, some brown sugar and butter and turn them into MUFFIN BARS.

Not only could I picture these treats sitting next to a few sausage links, a scrambled egg, and a glass of OJ while sitting in bed being celebrated on Mother’s Day, but these would also be great for normal mornings. They are quick, easy, and only require a few ingredients.

Plus, you can grab a really fun Betty Crocker® coupon to use while you’re shopping in Publix® for your favorite Mother’s Day ingredients! Go ahead and print it now before quantities run out.

    • esyke623

      I think I’d use the Betty Crocker Blueberry Muffin Mix, but make it with a streudel topping for a dessert! Maybe warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream? Yum!

      My 14 year old daughter absolutely loves to cook. Since we are a single income homeschooling family your services have been a great money saver to us. Most likely she will make blueberry pancakes with the muffin mix. When we make them that way there is no need for syrup.

She loved to make homemade chicken/matzah ball soup so my 2 (grown and out of the house) daughters will be coming over and bringing the ingredients so we can honor my mom and their grandma by making this on Mothers Day :-) :-) :-)
