Mixed Berry Muffins

I find it handy to keep a bag of frozen berries in the freezer for pancake toppings or to whip up some muffins like these ones for kids lunchboxes. This is a simple recipe where you put everything together mix and you are done. Perfect for the kids to make in the weekend to prepare for the week ahead.
