I’m always looking for ways to make muffins healthier, because if I could eat a muffin everyday I would. And these dairy free blueberry banana muffins with added oat bran are IT. I also feel good about giving one to my daughter for breakfast, or in her lunchbox because it’s not packed with sugar like most muffins. In fact, they’re quite healthy and tastes good too.
My mother in law gave me the original recipe, but I altered it a bit to make it dairy free. I swapped out and added a few ingredients, too. And used spelt flour instead of whole wheat. Either one is fine, spelt is what I had on hand today.

If you like muffins that aren’t overly sweet, then you’ll like these. They’re also easy to freeze. My mother in law freezes them and pulls one out in the morning to eat for lunch or as a light snack daily. I like to put one in for my daughter’s school snack in her lunch box.

And if you like the star cut outs I did with the banana on top of the muffin, you can find the mini fruit cutters here. I’m telling you, fruit cutters make all the difference!
