Blueberry Banana Mini Muffins

I hear it again, that desperate cry of starvation “Mum, can I have something to eat?”.  Whilst you don’t want to ruin the kids appetite, hearing “please can I have something to eat?  Please…please…please” for the next hour is seriously going to drive you insane.

Luckily these delicious blueberry banana mini muffins are going to be the answer to your prayers.  Seriously they are!

They are sweet enough to be considered naughty, but healthy enough for you not to be guilt ridden.  Trust me when I say, you need these muffins in your life.  Lucky for us, our contributor Kirsten from Treat Yourself Sweeter, has shared this amazing recipe with us, that is going to give us a few minutes peach from the kids!Blueberry Banana Muffin

Wahoo… it is ALMOST the end of the week. OMG, what a week it has been- it has been so, ah hem… challenging,  that I won’t even horrify you with it. Let’s just say, I’ll be happy when the weekend gets here.

I ask you though, when did life get so busy?!

Honestly, I feel like I never ever have enough time in the day- ever! What usually gets dropped off my list of ‘to do’ things….the gym, exercise.. even just that little walk, a few weights…

Blueberry Banana Mini Muffins

Oh, I never EVER use to be like that… a quick run before work, gym after and now I can’t seem to squeeze anything on some days. You know what I always manage to squeeze in though? Dessert… chocolate… a few sweet treats 😉

That is why I need healthified, sweet snacks- something that takes the edge of my sweet craving but isn’t like tucking into that rich New York baked cheesecake (which I could SO do right now… argh!!)

Blueberry Banana Mini Muffins

I love quick muffins that are just bite sized, I find that I only need to grab one – and they are small. Bonuses all around- healthifed, small, sweet… almost guilt free.

Oh and almost most importantly.. quick, easy and only one bowl really needed! Who doesn’t love to minimize the mess??
