Breakfast muffins

It’s Mother’s Day and as a gesture of my appreciation for one of the nicest mothers I’ve ever known, I made my mum a batch of *healthy* breakfast muffins. They have a variety of healthy berries but also a generous helping of chocolate guaranteed to help kick start a good day. You can use fresh or frozen berries and any kind of chocolate you like. I used white chocolate which complimented the berries nicely. My mums liked it and of course after breakfast I gave her a bouquet of fresh flowers along with (I couldn’t help it!) a Mother’s Day balloon.
