Banana and Blueberry Muffins Recipe – Healthy AND Delicious

banana and blueberry muffins recipe

Banana and Blueberry Muffins are a classic.

So on my mission to be the ‘perfect’ mummy feeding my son the ‘perfect’ foods, I found myself on a mission to find healthy baking recipes I can give little man (ahem, me) to eat and not fill up on sugar and crap!

Cut to the image that filled my head…. the perfect stepford mummy standing in a sun drenched kitchen, wearing a flowery apron and head scarf, whistling while she effortlessly whips up tasty treats for us…..


But I soon realised that the ‘perfect’ mummy DOESN’T exist. No matter how hard you try, mummying is hard, really hard and perfection should never be the goal. Rather a happy, safe & loved child who won’t need to spend his adult life recovering from a crappy childhood!

However, healthy but delicious child approved baking does exist! Phew. And a banana and blueberry muffins recipe seemed like a great place to start.

Allow me to introduce you to healthy, guilt free banana and blueberry muffins literally oozing with yumminess! They are moist, sweet and full of flavour – nothing like what you’d expect from a whole wheat treat.  Plus they are so quick and easy to make, perfect for breakfast or snack time!

Recipe type: Baking
Cuisine: Healthy Snack or Breakfast
  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp vinegar
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • 2 cups wholegrain oats (normal oats will do!)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1-2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 cup blueberries
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, and lightly coat 8-10 muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray or line with muffin cases.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the oats, baking powder, cinnamon, brown sugar and chia seeds.
  3. In a separate bowl, mash the bananas then add the egg and whisk with a fork. Next, add the melted coconut oil (make sure it's not hot) and vinegar. Mix well.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix well until all combined,
  5. Add a little milk at a time and stir into the batter.
  6. Finally, add the blueberries and carefully fold into the mixture - keep them whole so they ooze yumminess when you bite into them!
  7. Divide the batter between the muffin trays. This batter usually makes 12 muffins.
  8. Bake at for for 20 minutes, or until barely firm to the touch and a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
