Blueberry Banana Muffins (vegan and gluten free)
These bite-sized blueberry banana muffins are perfectly moist and bake in just 15 minutes. They are great for breakfast on the go or a snack. This recipe uses healthy fats from avocado and coconut so each mini muffin will leave you feeling full and ready for the day.
Blueberries contain anthocyanins which are powerful phytonutrients that offer many health benefits.
Blueberries have been associated with improvement in long term memory and also have been found to drastically reduce the risk of cardio vascular disease.
