Healthy Banana & Blueberry Muffins
These blueberry muffins are ideal as a breakfast item, or elevenses, or even just the occasional snack. The use of wholemeal flour, no added sugar and the boon of fibre and antioxidant rich blueberries gives rise to even the most health conscious. They're extremely easy to make, and delciious when warm.
