Muffin Tin Monday - breakfast

This week's round of Muffin Tin Monday did not have a theme. And while I had some ideas float around in my head, in the end I was not feeling very inspired. I ended up making a breakfast tin.
MTM breakfast in a tin!

Across the top row: homemade raspberry crumb mini-muffin, banana pop, strawberry.
Bottom row: grapes, plain yogurt with an apricot fruit leather flower, homemade raisin granola mix.

The banana on a popsicle trick is total genius, but alas, I can't take credit for it at all. Alie showed off that bit of brilliance with her MTM post a few weeks ago! Isn't it fantastic?! Way to go, Alie! My girl Paigey-pie was so thrilled with it she bit off the end before I could take the picture!

Awesome breakfast tin. Is the raspberry crumb from scratch? Sounds like a delish recipe :)

Mommyof2girlz - yep! It's made using a recipe for a plain base muffin that you can add whatever fruit you like. The crumb topping is something I add to a lot of stuff we bake. Gives the top a nice texture. :)
I made these up awhile back and have had them in the freezer. They thaw overnight and are just as soft and fresh as could be the next day! My baby was too young to partake when I first made them, but he's been enjoying them with his breakfasts lately. So fun to have another real eater in the house now! :)

Love the banana pop! We have those popsicle bases too so I'm all set. They also work great as corn on the cob holders - I stick a knife in the cob first and then stick the popsicle base in. The girls love it!

it looks great. and the banana pop is genius! my girls love bananas - and i just got pop makers! it's perfect!

Oh, Tricia! That's a great idea for corn-on-the-cob! We have the regular little end handle skewer things for corn, but I'm always afraid the kids are going to stab themselves or poke their eyes out with them. LOL!

Man, who knew popsicle handles could be so versatile? :)

You are so sweet. I feel like a celebrity just for sticking a Popsicle stick in a banana... :)
