Banana And Blueberry Muffins

Having a  healthy breakfast is a good start of the day and it is the  most important meal of the day. Today we are starting with 4th week of BM 55 and my theme for the week is Kids Delight - healthy breakfast. Don't know how  fussy your kids are but my kids very fussy in the mornings to have their breakfast. Often they have milk and cereal or a simple bread and jam  or a boiled egg for the  breakfast. Sometimes they skip everything and just have a glass of milk.

While thinking about this theme thought  why not make something with fruits which they like most. Found this Muffin Recipe on You tube while searching for healthy Muffins.  My kids love cupcakes and muffins. So made these delicious  and healthy banana and blueberry muffins to kick start their day.  Blueberries and banana  are packed with full of vitamin C and fiber.  I combined these 2 fruits to make  a healthy muffin. As the summer holidays are still going on for us, I made kids help me in baking these beautiful muffins. Just hand them 1 or 2 muffins if they do not have much time to eat them  at home. Easy to carry and easy to eat while they are on their way to school. This makes  you happy as they are having healthy breakfast and not skipping the important meal. Kids are also happy as they are getting what they like  in a healthy way. So here goes the yummy muffins for day 1.

Ripe banana 2 (3 /4 cup)
Wheat flour 1 cup
All purpose flour 3/4 cup
