Bah! My baby is a year! She is no longer a baby.

Now she has a shopping cart, a purse and a little person dollhouse. Where has time gone?

I’m even giving her big people food now. She loved the cranberry chicken salad I made a couple weeks ago, tuna, pasta sauce, nutella lava cake and these banana blueberry muffins! That’s right, these healthy banana blueberry muffins are Maddie tested and approved!

In all honestly, this was the third round of testing on this recipe. It originally started off as banana blueberry bread, but I couldn’t quite get the texture and flavor right. I usually don’t end up making something more than once, so to say I was frustrated is an understatement.

But … I am proud to say after MU-CH testing I have perfected this recipe!

Made with whole wheat flour and naturally sweetened with apple sauce, banana and honey ensure that these muffins stay moist!

These muffins are bursting with blueberry goodness and are only 151 calories per serving! I like to top them with a little almond butter for some added protein. Cason likes them warmed up with peanut butter.

They  make a great on the go breakfast if you’re in a hurry, a fiber filled food to throw into your kiddos lunch or a great protein burst for a mid-day snack!

I cannot wait to hear what you guys think. Happy Monday.

Bon Appetit!
