Blueberry muffins for happy arteries
I used to think I loved those regular muffins you find at most local coffee shops. But man, once I started researching how to eat for optimal health, I realised they were causing my body to consistently gain weight and be hormonally out of whack.
A few years ago I began to explore what was possible when baking using superfoods and incredibly heart-healthy ingredients. It’s not muffins (as an art-form) that are bad, just a few of their ingredients. Suddenly a whole new world opened, and my baking was baaaack.
These blueberry banana muffins are so, so much yummier that the bog-standard muffin. Jam packed with nutrients and flavour, they leave you feeling energised for hours. I love their portability, healthy snack-ability and overall moreishness. And I especially adore that they only take 10 minutes of hands-on time to whip up. Each one contains a whole 1/3 of a banana and plenty of almonds and other healthy fats that encourage weight loss along with high energy levels.
It’s time to put that giant puffy white hat back on your head and start throwing flour (almond of course) around your kitchen again!
