Banana & Blueberry Muffins

These are the perfect treat for breakfast, morning tea or any time you need a reasonably healthy treat. The addition of cinnamon and allspice gives them a gentle spice nudge and they’re filled with delicious fruit that even the fussiest eater will love.

The recipe makes 6 large or 12 smallish muffins, but you could double the recipe to make 12 nice big ones. Whatever you do, these are just delicious.

This recipe calls for light yoghurt and milk, which makes them perfect for those watching the calories. If you’re not so fussed, just go ahead and use full fat.
