Blueberry, Banana and White Chocolate Muffins

Mothers Day, Mothering Sunday, healthy, cupcakes, fruit

In honour of Mother’s Day I thought I would bake these muffins which having had a road test in our house, went down very well (even with a certain person who says they don’t like blueberries like them). I always think if you can put fruit like bananas and blueberries in cake then you don’t need to feel nearly as guilty eating it, plus when it tastes this good it’s the perfect win win situation. I won’t pretend these are the muffins I’d planned to make though. I really need to take a leaf out of Mary Berry’s book who said recently that she has a secret hiding place for her cooking chocolate! I went to my cupboard and discovered that several bars had diminished to a lonely bar of white chocolate so that was my first change. Then the raspberries I’d planned to use had freezer burn so they crossed off my ingredient list. Finally I was out of fancy paper muffin cases – all in all I was now wondering if I was meant to bake at all. A quick rummage in the freezer found some blueberries that I’d frozen and I found some plain muffin cases so all was not lost. Then it dawned on me that I was very low on baking powder but luckily there was just 1 teaspoon left. Talk about flying by the seat of your pants!

Anyway the combination of Blueberries, Banana and White Chocolate proved to be a winning one so maybe some things are just meant to be!

As these muffins are totally made from scratch I’m entering them into Javelin Warrior’s Made with Love Mondays challenge. I am also entering them into the No Waste Food Challenge run by Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary and this month hosted by Chris from Cooking Around the World  as I froze my bargain blueberries to stop them from perishing when I didn’t get round to using them at Christmas.
