Mothers Day is coming up. That means it’s time to get those gifts ready, and make plans to remind Mom just how much you love her. As a mom, I will tell you right now, it’s the little things that mean the most – an acknowledgment of all she does and the little sacrifices that may not seem like much is all Mom is looking for.
Last week I shared 7 gifts Mom will love – today I’m giving you 2 simple recipes to make Mom’s breakfast in bed extra special.
Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 3 Bananas
- 1 3/4 cup flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- Streusal Topping
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp Roasted Saigon Cinnamon (gives it a very light kick)
- 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
- Cream together shortening, sugar, eggs, and bananas. Set aside.
- Sift flour, baking soda, and salt together.
- Add dry to the wet ingredients, and mix until well combined.
- Fill muffin liners 1/3 full with batter.
- Add a few chocolate chips, and fill the muffin liner up to 2/3 full.
- In a bowl combine butter and sugars.
- Slowly add in flour and spices until just combined. Crumble on top of muffins.
- Bake for 50-60 minutes.
- Cool on a wire rack.
Oatmeal Yogurt Parfait
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup Rolled Oats
- 1/2 cup frozen mixed fruit, thawed
- 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
- Fresh blueberries and strawberries
- Boil water, and add the oats.
- Stir until well mixed.
- Layer a 1/4 cup oats in the bottom of a cup or parfait dish, top with 1/4 cup frozen fruit mix, then 1/4 yogurt.
- Repeat the layers.
- Top with a spoonful of fresh blueberries and a strawberry.
You can add that touch of special with a chocolate butterfly! Directions for that can be found at We Lived Happily Ever After.
Don’t forget to pretty up the breakfast tray! Add some fresh flowers, her favorite book, whatever it is your mom likes. Go ahead, spoil her!

Thank you Ambreen. Have a fabulous weekend as well!
Great breakfast ideas… all of them will look lovely spilled on my sheets.
haha Diane. Enjoy!
Your chocolate butterflies came out perfect!! Thanks for hosting & have a great week!!
Ah, thanks so much Kim. This one was my second attempt. The first looked okay, but ended up with a bit more solid wings.
That parfait looks absolutely amazing! 🙂 Thanks for hosting, now I'm hungry….again….haha!
lol. I've been trying to get my kids to eat more oatmeal and less cereal (it's so expensive!), so this was a result of that. They still manage to pick around the oatmeal though. At least the fruit and yogurt is healthier for them. I'm in love with it though.
New to your party, thank you for it. New follower too. Feel free to stop by my blog anytime at http://www.memoriesbythemile.com/

Stopping by sorry it took me a bit. Linked up last night but your post wasn't live yet but now I am back and super impressed with your Chocolate Butterfly. What a special touch to a perfect Mother's Day Breakfast in Bed! Off to check out all the new recipes that were linked up since last night.
Felissa, thanks so much for stopping by. Diane is always quicker at getting her post up 🙂 I do try to schedule it out, but thursday nights seem to creep up on me, lol.
The yogurt and the muffin sound delicious. So does the idea of breakfast in bed with a good book.
Thanks so much for linking up at the Real Family Fun link party! Hope to see you next week.
I personally think any day is complete if a good book is involved 🙂 Thanks for the party, I've added the button to my "Where I Party" page (in hopes of remembering to join each week)
Thanks SO much for the feature!! 🙂
