Easy Mini Blueberry Muffins with Driscoll's Blueberries + Giveaway

Wednesday, April 30, 2014



If you are a follower of my blog, then you are aware of my extremely picky eater of a child.  For the past two years I have tried everything to get this kid to eat things other than pizza and chicken nuggets.
Don't judge.
However, recently he has started to at least try foods before deciding whether he hates them or really does like it.  The kid is a creature of habit so getting him to even look at a new food let alone taste it is a miracle.  Now that it's spring and we are gearing up for summer, I love to stock the house up with fresh fruit, including our favorite Driscoll's berries.  I decided to get brave and offer Cohen some blueberries with his dinner the other night and he loved them! This was the perfect opportunity to create something new with the blueberries that I knew he'd eat.

Lately he has been on a muffin kick so I decided to make up a batch of easy blueberry muffins with Driscoll's blueberries - but only mini and of course Cohen sized.

My friends they were a hit!
I actually made up an extra batch of them and froze them for future breakfasts.  Perfect for those busy mornings moms!  Plus the bite size muffins are perfect for little hands.



But moms of picky eaters, I have to share with you a great book that shares the story of a little picky eater himself.  "The Scary Blueberry" by Jaden A. Shelton tells the story of a boy who is afraid to try a blueberry.  His dad convinces him not to be afraid by reminding him of all the things he isn't scared of  (like a big, ferocious dragon!) to get him to try that blueberry.  It has turned into one our favorite bedtime stories and has been a great conversation starter when trying to get Cohen to eat new foods.




Now let me help you create your own berry recipe for your picky eater!  Enter the Rafflecopter below  for your chance to win $15 in Driscoll's coupons and your own copy of "The Scary Blueberry."
