New Taste Thinking:
Making these muffins is a great activity to do with kids, yours or someone else's. I know how much kids like to bake cookies with a little help from an adult, as I have done it many times. Why bother to teach them about creaming fat and sugar together when you can show them how to hide blueberries in the center of a muffin and put slices of banana on top! Teach older children how to make these muffins and let them come up with all sorts of interesting fillings like dried fruit, apples, strawberries, other nuts and so on.
