So we ventured to the local show on Friday. My first time ever! The kids loved every second of it. They fought their need for sleep through tired eyes. They eyed each animal up and down and hesitantly touched them. It was wonderful to watch. We shared the day with my parents, sister, her husband, their two children and of course my own little family. We snacked on muffins that had been made fresh that morning and basked in the beautiful sunshine that the day offered. It was a lovely day but we were glad to get home and put those weary heads to bed.
These muffins are superb! They are soft and moist and you could substitute the fruit for whatever you have on hand. I had an over ripe pineapple and some half eaten pears in the fridge (kids) that i blended and turned into puree the froze the rest for future use. I have also made these muffins with mashed banana as well and they were gooooooood!

Hey There, I’m Sherilyn the creator of Wholepromise. This is where I venture outside of being a mum, wife and Fertility Nurse Specialist. I live on the Sunshine Coast in Qld, Australia and am spoilt by year round access to Farmers Markets offering a plethora of local, seasonal and organic produce. In all Wholepromise is my style of food, it’s the food I want my boys to appreciate and it’s the food that makes me happy. Styling and photographing it is just another bonus.
