Hi everyone! Amanda from Simple home cook here and I have a great lunch box item to share with you. Banana muffins appear in our lunchboxes pretty often but this time I have added some blueberries. Not only are they moist, they taste great and kids love them.
If you are not a fan of blueberries, you can leave them out altogether or substitute them for raspberries or choc chips. They are easy to make and this recipe makes 18 so they go along way. They are also great for the freezer so make a double batch and you will have them on hand for weeks.
