Happy New Year, and I am back to blogging !!!! Yey!!! hope you had a great holiday month and New Year.... We had a blast , visited Singapore and also our relatives in Kulhudhufushi. Now school holidays are almost over and its back to our usual daily routine, well almost....
Its a New Year Year , so decided to start the year with something healthy. Blueberries are pretty expensive over here and during our visit to Singapore I brought home a few punnets of blueberries and strawberries, the boys wolfed down two while I hid the other two in the freezer.
They did create a fuss when they found out , but my excuse was, you two had your share now this is mine LOL, and you still get to enjoy them just a little differently.
These blueberry and banana muffins are delicious as a tea time treat and also for breakfast and I am pretty sure this will be great for school snack as well... I made mine healthier with the addition of quick cooking oats.
Banana and Blueberry Muffins : recipe inspired by Banana Chocolate chip muffins recipe from Ahead of Thyme .

3 small bananas ( roughly 1 cup when mashed)
1/3 cup corn oil( use any kind of neutral oil)

Take two bowls. Into one bowl sift flour , add salt , sugar , baking powder and oats, mix with a spoon and set a side.
