  • It may help reduce the risk of heart disease
  • Help in strengthening bones
  • They are nutrient dense
  • High antioxidant levels
  • Protect against aging
  • Aid in maintaining brain function and memory

Like many muffin recipes, this banana blueberry muffin can also be made into delicious baked donuts. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

I like to make 12 muffins and use the rest of the batter for pancakes. For the best and fastest pancakes, I use my Dash Mini Maker. The pancakes are delicious and a fun handheld snack for kids too.
