I have never had Hummingbird Muffins or Cake before. But have seen recipes for these flying around the internet quite often.

On closer look at the ingredients I immediately knew we would love it.

It is such a fruity treat, Banana, Cherries and then one of my all time favorite fruits ..Pineapple !

And did I, and the rest of the family, fall hard for these Hummingbird Muffins 😉

Perfect breakfast addition or as a lunchbox treat ! These Hummingbird Muffins are moist, fruit packed and totally delicious !

The recipe yields 18 large muffins and we usually have some leftover which I keep in a sealed container.

They are just fine the next day. If not better, which is kind of unusual for a muffin, as they tend to dry out quite soon.

It takes literally minutes to prepare and by the time the oven was ready, I was done, and the few dishes I had, were washed already.

These Hummingbird Muffins are perfect for a jump start to your morning and I think especially great to add to the kids lunch boxes (or your own if you’re working).

Me, I love them as a mid morning snack with a cup of tea.

I might have had a late start by making a Hummingbird anything, but I am most certainly catching up !

Since the first batch we have had these Muffins 3 times already and now keep all the ingredients on hand for just in case !

Next on the list … definitely a Hummingbird Cake.
