Blueberry & Banana Muffins


There's something so comforting about a freshly baked blueberry muffin and a cup of tea. It's a classic treat that I'm sure all of us have enjoyed at some point in our lives! I have happy memories of coming home from a long day at school to juicy, sweet blueberry muffins at home. They were an occasional treat but one I always longed for! Since changing my diet to be entirely gluten and dairy free I haven't been able to indulge in this favourite treat of mine....that was until I came up with this recipe.

I have created muffin recipes before which have always been delicious, but I've never quite got that muffin texture quite right. It's taken a fair bit of trial and error but I've finally mastered it!


The texture is light, fluffy and moist with the perfect amount of crumble. The flavour is sweet but not sickly and the blueberries bring juicy bursts of joy to each mouthful! I've been enjoying the muffins as an afternoon snack with a cup of tea or they're truly amazing slightly warmed up with a scoop of dairy free ice-cream or drizzle of your favourite nut butter.
All the ingredients in these muffins are super healthy too so they could make a fab grab-and-go breakfast option for busy mornings. The combination of the oats and the banana will fuel you and give you loads of energy, the blueberries provide a lovely dose of antioxidants and the dash of cinnamon can help to balance out your blood sugar levels.
