Healthy Blueberry & Banana Muffins for Kids

When I questioned Master L about what his kindy classmates were having for lunch (I’m always after new and fun ideas!), he told me that one child was eating Blueberry Muffins. Now I know for a fact that he doesn’t like blueberries at all, but he assured me he would like them in a muffin…so on a mission I went!

I found a yummy & healthy recipe (thanks to my friend google) and adapted it a little. They turned out amazingly & the kids LOVED them! I’m so happy to find another healthy snack that they both like!
