Easy Easter Flower Banana Bread Muffins

Flower Shaped Banana Bread MuffinsWhen we think of Easter, we most often have bunny rabbits and Easter egg images come to mind. But, Easter is also a celebration of new life and the spring season. The bulbs and flowers are blooming in abundance. With such a beautiful display of glorious life, I want to capture it all, bring it into my home and keep it forever. I very much enjoy surrounding myself with inspiration to rejoice and celebrate.

With that in mind, I love to make my Easy Easter Flower Banana Bread Muffins for breakfast. They are absolutely delicious with coffee on an early Easter morning and they are also extremely easy.

For these baked flowers, I grab my banana bread recipe simply because it is a family favorite and requires no icing or frosting. Not frosting them allows the shape of the flower to really be center stage on my breakfast table.

    The recipe is similar to my banana bread recipe too, just a couple of variations – this sounds good with Bisquick though!
