I am so excited to share my latest recipe with you guys! My Rum and Chocolate Banana Muffins using “Fleischmann’s Simply Homemade Banana Muffin & Bread Mix” is simple, delicious and perfect for the holidays!

I make a Rum and Chocolate Banana Bread in my book The Seasoned Life, but this is a quick and easy alternative if you’re crunched for time. Your holiday guests will not believe it comes from a box, especially when you add the tasty twists like rum, chocolate and flax seed. The mix is made with the same ingredients you would typically find in your pantry and doesn’t contain artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. It even has real bananas! For a busy mom like me, this is the jackpot! Fleischmann’s Simply Homemade Banana Muffin & Bread mix is going to give us that scratch-made taste we all know and love in half the time. It goes great with my “Holiday Smoothie” for a refreshing winter breakfast on the go too!

The combination of rich banana flavor, savory rum and sweet chocolate lends something for everyone. Plus, the easy steps and quick bake-time allows you to have more time to spend with your family. Give it a try and you won’t be disappointed. Enjoy!
