Banana Bread is a favorite in my house. I must make it at least once a month. Actually whenever I have over ripe bananas. Most of the time I substitute some part of the flour with whole wheat flour. And then lots of walnuts and dried fruits also go in. Hence I like to make it often since it’s a perfect snack/treat for the kids anytime of the day!
I have posted the recipe before for Banana Nut bread. That is a recipe I have been making for the last 10 years! This time as I was making it I realized that I had run out of walnuts. I scratched my brain for what I could use instead of walnuts and for some reason, blueberries popped into my head! Maybe because it is blueberry season! So blueberries it was going to be! I also decided to make them in the muffin pan so that we could have cute looking Blueberry banana muffins 🙂
Blueberries are not only delicious but are also a superfood since they are packed by nutrients – they are low in calories and have high antioxidant properties as well as are rich in Vitamin C ,Vitamin K and manganese. They can prevent DNA damage and have anti-aging as well as anti-diabetic effects.
So enjoy these yummy and healthy treats guilt-free! Make sure you have a lot of fresh blueberries along with the muffins though since raw berries will have the maximum benefits.
