Yummy Tummy Blueberry Muffins

Both of my boys are huge fans of mini muffins. Their mom, however, is not a huge fan of the copious amounts of sugars found in these little morsels. So, I set out to modify a few muffin recipes I have collected over the years to create a {healthier} mini blueberry muffin for my wee ones to nosh on.  With the help of my kitchen assistant and chief taste tester, Zachary, I created 'Yummy Tummy Blueberry Muffins', using whole wheat flour, fibre cereals and bananas in the place of cups of sugar.


1.5 cups    Whole Wheat Flour (or all-purpose flour, or a combo of both)
1 cup         Fibre Cereal (do not use flakes)
1/2 cup      Sugar
1 tsp          Baking Soda
1 cup         Blueberries (if frozen, let them thaw first)
2 or 3         Mashed, ripe bananas
1/4 cup      Oil (I use extra virgin olive oil)
2                Eggs

Make It:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees; line your muffin tin or grease each cup.
  • Mix together all dry ingredients (flour, cereal, sugar, baking soda); fold in blueberries
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the mashed bananas, oil and eggs. 
  • Add your wet ingredients to your dry ingredients. Stir gently until mixed well. Do not over mix.
  • Spoon the mixture into a muffin tray (I prefer mini muffin trays)
  • Bake for 15 minutes (mini muffins) or 22 minutes (regular muffins), or until the tops are slightly golden. (REMEMBER: your oven may be different from mine! Keep on eye on these bad boys while they're in the oven)
  • Remove from muffin tin and allow to cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes.

Tip:  Choose a fibre cereal that looks 'stringy' (or like little worms, as my 3 year old pointed out) with less than 4g of sugar per serving (I like PC Blue Menu Fibre First cereal, but there are many to choose from)


Tip:  If you are using fresh blueberries, stick them in the freezer for about 10 or 15 minutes before adding them into the mixture. 


  1. They look good really good. Good job, missus. :)

    1. Thanks! The kids have had a few each day. I had planned to freeze so but it doesn't look like that's going to happen...

  2. I can actually eat these (no dairy)!!!...and my boys LOVE blueberries and bananas. They will thank you big time.
