Surprise Nana Muffins

6 muffins
5 Min

What's the surprise? Little chunks of dried fruit and preserves hide in the middle of these banana muffins. And there's no fuss mashing bananas- just start with a packaged muffin mix!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (6.4 ounce) package banana nut muffin mix
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup fig preserves or strawberry jam
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dates or raisins

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly coat 6 muffin cups with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine muffin mix, buttermilk, and egg; stir just until moist. Spoon about 1 tablespoon batter into each muffin cup, spreading batter to cover bottom of cups.
  3. Spoon 2 teaspoons fig preserves and 1 teaspoon dates into center of each cup; divide remaining batter evenly among muffin cups to cover fruit. Bake 5 minutes. Remove from pan immediately.
