Healthy Blueberry Banana Muffins

Healthy Blueberry Banana Muffins for a weekend when the house is full and you need a quick breakfast. When I am cooking on a holiday weekend it’s always nice to have something easy and quick for breakfast. A nice blueberry muffin with coffee or tea is just the right thing.

I had this blueberry muffin recipe from allrecipes.com but had to adjust it a bit for what I had in house. I only had two small bananas and one was already cut in half and taken…so time to improvise. I needed a little more moisture so I added 2/3 cup of our homemade cinnamon apple sauce. You could use store bought and your preference of cinnamon flavor or plain apple sauce.
