SAY WHAT..???.... a Good-For-Ya Muffin..?

 



Hello, everyone... 
 
I bought this  adorable white egg tray at
BIG LOTS
for $5....

normally $10 but 50% off 
made me smile...!!

Look how many deviled eggs it will hold....


Having most of my dishes packed....and looking for a nice big platter to serve these
STRAWBERRY OATMEAL MUFFINS,
I found out that this egg tray can show-off  my cookin' just fine...


...THESE are really tasty...and the kind of muffin that you can add  your favorite things.....or whatever you might have on hand at the time.

I made one pan of mini muffins and a couple pans of regular size......
some went into the freezer for awhile...with those fresh strawberries in the muffins, they surely will be good, in the mid of winter.

The minis are perfect for "on the go", along with that favorite cup of coffee....:)

 I have strawberries....oatmeal.....and pecans in these...
and they are goood......

HOWEVER...they weren't quite sweet enuf for moi....



















so I served them with low fat
STRAWBERRY CREAM CHEESE...

ahhhhh.....just perfect.






I added fresh squeezed 
lemon juice to one pan of the muffins...







and don'tchaknow they were delicious
served with a little 
LEMON CURD.

O HONEY







Don't know which one YOU would rather have..??







awww...

come on and have
ONE OF BOTH...

...that's the way I do it.....







This good recipe comes from WILL COOK FOR SMILES.

I tweaked the recipe a little...not much....
just added lemon juice to one pan full...
 pecans....
I used SUGAR SUB instead of real sugar...
oh, and cinnamon....

sooo...sugar sub...nuts...fresh fruit...oatmeal....
see....
I TOLD you they were good for you !! :)

I hope you have a MUFFIN kind of day....

SEE YA NEXT WEEK

Oh- You are such a Texas Temptress. It sounds wonderful..and I love your little egg dish-xo Diana

LV said...

Two of my favorite things. However, any food is a favorite when someone else cooks it. I will have a big helping of each of these.

Michelle said...

What a cute use for that dish! I love lemon curd as well!

Vee said...

Always thinking and always thinking ahead. I have no baked goods in my freezer!

Adam said...

Sounded lush!

Patty Patterson said...

Who would have thought of an egg plate to serve muffins? It's cute, though. And the muffins look delicious.

Balisha said...

Oh BJ...you do make things delicious. If they are just plain ole muffins...you come up with the best ideas.
Did you bury St Joseph?

Sarah said...

Oh, yum! Those muffins with the lemon curd do look tasty!

Linda said...

Yum! I usually make muffins in the fall/winter but I am inspired now!!
All your posts are just so 'magazine lay out' PRETTY!!!

Ms Lemon of Make Mine Lemon said...

Okay, my ears got pointy when you brought out the lemon. I think with the mini tins you could have one of each and not feel too guilty. :)

Theresa said...

Oh they looks SO yummy AND GOOD FOR YOU TOO? Alrighy, I will have a couple:) Love the egg tray:) Have a blessed day dear BJ, HUGS!

Madeline's Album said...

Beverly said...

Don't dare tell anyone, but I will have one of each. Yum!

Happy Pink Saturday, BJ.

Pondside said...

I'd definitely have to test one of each to make a decision.....but I'm pretty sure that I'd love the addition of the lemon curd!

Phyllis @Around the House said...

I think I will have 2 of each of these little delights, gotta love that lemon curd...delightful and I loved your photos as always...

Kathleen Grace said...

I'll have the lemon curd please! I was just thinking of making some muffins earlier today. The weather has cooled enough to consider baking again! We have some rhubarb in the garden that needs to be harvested:>)

Annesphamily said...

Oh I would love to have your recipe! My doctor is picking on me to be careful with sugar! So this would be delightful! Love your egg tray, that is a real gem! Have a terrific weekend.

Debbie@Debbie-Dabble and A Debbie-Dabble Christmas said...

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Where oh where did you get the deviled egg tray??? It's wonderful. The ones I have seen are always WAS too small.
The little muffins look so scrumptious!! But then everything you ever make does!!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

The muffins sound so good. They wouldn't last long at my house. Hubby has a sweet tooth and I sometimes have to hide things so he won't eat them up too fast! I loved the idea of serving the muffins in an egg dish for breakfast.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Jann Olson said...

Just gonna say that I want one, (maybe two) of each. lol! YUM!
hugs,
Jann

Rettabug said...

BJ, you are so creative in the kitchen...I never would have thought to change up a recipe like that. Both versions sound delish, but you KNOW which ones I'd pick first! LOL

Hugs,
Rett

Carlene @ Organized Clutter said...

I had to come over and see what you were up to BJ while I have been watering and watering and deadheading flowers. I see you have been baking again. I think my husband would rather have a baker and cook than a gardener!

Patti said...

They look delicious, and I love the creative way you came up with to serve them. I would never have thought of that!

Oh, and by the way, I'll take both kinds!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

now let me get this straight...strawberries, pecans, AND oatmeal? Then topping it all off with strawberry cream icing?! Oh my lord, be still my heart.

FABBY'S LIVING said...

Ann said...

Because things were packed away, you invented a new way to use the tray!!! They look and sound SO yummy. I'd probably eat too many.ann
