tasty. blueberry banana muffins.

Yep. I am on a blueberry craze. I love blueberries in just about anything and this quick, healthy muffin recipe allows for a nutritious snack or meal before heading out the door. The kids love. The husband loves. And, I love. I have modified this recipe about a million times, but think I have settled on something that is a winner in my book. Be warned… the blueberries are mighty delicious and messy, so prepare accordingly. I learned this the hard way as the lil’ lady managed to track it all over the kitchen and her face. Sigh. I guess those are the moments. Try it out and let me know what you think!
