Clean Eating Blueberry Banana Muffins

Sometimes the best recipes are the ones you make when you run out of ingredients!

My cousin brought her sweet little toddler to a blueberry farm a few weeks ago, so we were the lucky recipients of some fresh blueberries! Yum. My first thought was blueberry muffins, but I had run out of honey.

I knew I could substitute maple syrup, but it changes the flavor and is not as sweet as honey. I looked over at a few overripe bananas and the idea for blueberry banana muffins was born!

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t surprised that the kids liked these mini muffins so much. They are usually picky with new muffins, but once they tried one mini muffin, I had to stop them from eating the whole pan!

I am very picky when it comes to blueberry muffins. If the blueberry to muffin ratio is too high, I can only taste the blueberries.

Adding blueberries to banana muffins

This healthy muffin recipe had the perfect ratio of muffin to blueberries! I made one batch where I first put the blueberries in the blender for a few seconds. It was delicious too but the blueberry flavor wasn’t as strong. So I recommend mixing them in whole.
