Despite the fact that none of my three kids like blueberries we all love a good blueberry muffin. The traditional blueberry muffin that you might pick up in a coffee shop will be made with refined white sugar and white flour. Here I've used a blend of plain flour and spelt flour to make them a bit more wholesome.
I've also used coconut sugar instead of white sugar - however you can substitute caster sugar if you prefer. We found them perfectly sweet with the coconut sugar.
Banana blueberry muffins are great in lunch boxes
I've frozen a few batches of these and they defrost well so are a great addition to your lunchbox stash. There's no nuts in them and they are dairy free if you use vegan yoghurt as I have done.
