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.
