Elliot loves blueberry muffins. Whenever Mummy needs a coffee, Elliot needs a blueberry muffin. Even if I try and sneak through a place he calls ‘banana loaf drive-through’ when he’s sleeping in the car, there’s a more than 60% chance he’ll wake briefly to tell me he wants a blueberry muffin.
Blueberry muffins from pretty much anywhere means cake. It’s too bad, because blueberries are actually quite good for you. I set about making a blueberry muffin I didn’t mind giving to Elliot often, and I came up with this one. It has whole grains and oats for staying power, and maple syrup instead of refined white sugar. I bake them in a mini muffin pan to make it easier to pack into bento boxes, but also because I toss most of them in the freezer and the small size means they defrost quickly. Enjoy!
