Banana Blueberry Bran Muffins

18 Jan

These tasty muffins are full of healthy goodness. Like most of my recipes, they contain no butter and no oil (although coconut butter is optional), yet they are moist and delicious! As always, I encourage you to play with it: add walnuts, or when seasons change, try them with peaches, nectarines, raspberries, or even figs! Have fun!   Alex
