Blueberry Muffins

Here is another healthy recipe for anyone who is on slimming world or just wants to be a bit healthier. I’m not a huge fan on blueberry muffins but smelling these cooking, made me want to try one.

I do the healthy options more for my sister-in-law and my boyfriends mum as they are both doing slimming world and I always feel bad for taking round cakes that they won’t eat because it isn’t healthy. Therefore, I wanted to make something that they could both enjoy without feeling guilty.

I got the idea to do blueberry muffins way back in January, as it was my boyfriends’ birthday and I made him American style blueberry pancakes on his birthday. I had leftover blueberries and I got wondering about what I could make with them.

These blueberry muffins are small but mighty. The recipe only makes six but I made two lots so I could give 6 to each person. These muffins are 3.5 syns per muffin.
