Holiday DIY Gifts — Week 3

Prepare yourself to get your hands “muddy”.

If you love banana bread you will absolutely love Banana Bread Muddy Buddies.  A few months ago I shared a recipe for Banana Bread Dip and Chocolate Covered Banana Bread Truffles that have been extremely popular.  I couldn’t help myself, especially for the holiday season to come up with this recipe.  Once you start munching on this tasty snack, you will have a hard time stopping.  It is so yummy!

I love this as a gift.  With the variety of pretty tins and treat boxes you can find at the craft stores, this makes a simple and lovely gift.  Who wouldn’t love this tasty snack to enjoy during the holidays?  If you are heading out to a holiday party, instead of bringing a tray of cookies, bring this instead for a yummy snack everyone will definitely enjoy.

I have another muddy buddy recipe coming up later this week.  They are both so good and make excellent gifts or to enjoy when you are looking for a sweet and crunchy snack.

  2. Great idea for gift giving (or giving to yourself!) Who doesn’t Love Banana Bread! Thanks for the great recipe.

  3. Wondering if this could altered updated to reflect the dangers of flour that isn’t heat treated. I will be baking my quick bread mix( the dry mix ) before adding it into my recipe to be safe.
