Blueberry banana muffins e1425747196396

I am totally in love with today’s mini muffin recipe; it is simple, yet full of fun flavors and wholesome nutrition. These healthy sweet treats are great to have with your morning cup of coffee instead of a bagel or a store-bought pastry.

I had a pint of gorgeous blueberries from the farmers’ market sitting in my fridge for a couple of days so I decided to use them in this recipe. What a treat this turned out to be! For extra sweetness, I added in a couple of ripe bananas along with a some pitted dates and skipped the sugar altogether. This also gives the muffins a very moist and velvety texture, which I totally love.

I also tossed in some chia seeds and walnut pieces for their heart-healthy Omega 3 fats. You can experiment with this recipe and add in anything else you are in a mood for to the base ingredients. Some good options include: cranberries, pecans, flax, sesame or hemp seeds, any dried fruits of choice, such as goji berries. Go wild!

These lil muffins are not only rich in gut-healthy fiber, but also packed with plant-based protein as well as beneficial fats, zinc, potassium, selenium and plenty of antioxidants. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
