Blueberry Banana Muffins

Muffins are just cupcakes for fit chicks. Right?

Well, these muffins are definitely made for fit chicks (and fit guys too). They’re healthy, I promise. They even kinda taste healthy and I dont mean that in a bad way. I mean that in a ‘go ahead and eat another one’ kinda way.

They’re vegan, oil-free, and contain very little sugar. You could of course add a bit more sugar to make them even sweeter but I think they tasted great for breakfast or a quick afternoon snack with coffee or tea.

They’re soft and chewy, packed with nutrients, and let’s be honest – they’re gorgeous!

You can probably already guess what happened here. I bought way too many bananas and they went super ripe super quick. I had about 6 bananas left before I was packing up to leave the house for the whole weekend and I needed to make good use of them. Voila! I baked up a batch of these delicious Blueberry Banana Muffins and took them with me on my weekend getaway to visit family.

My sweet little almost 2 year old niece Lily approved and even asked for more! Winning!

Pro-Tip: if you don’t feel like having a muffin, you could absolutely take this recipe and bake it up in a cake pan or bread pan. But who doesn’t feel like a muffin every once in awhile?
