Hot Air Balloon Muffins

Balloon Muffins (7)

Travis has had fun exploring different elements of flight lately, so we brought the theme to snacktime today! Okay, so our muffins didn’t actually fly, but now that we’ve made the recipe, I’d be curious what happens if you fill the balloons with helium!

First we made muffins from a mix (the gluten-free and vegan muffin mix from King Arthur Flour). Divide the batter evenly among muffin liners – since the liners were to be our hot air balloon “baskets,” I chose some with a fun print on them.

The sous-chef needed to lick the spatula, of course.

Bake according to package directions and let cool.

Insert 4 wooden skewers into each muffin.

Needless to say, our balloons were not aloft for long, but Travis was wild about this project!
