Muffin for breakfast? Yes, please.
These delicious blueberry treats might feel like an indulgent breakfast, but they’re actually a super-nutritious way to start the day — offering a healthy serving of carbs to fuel your activities and over 11g of protein to feed your muscles.
This super-simple recipe from our favourite kitchen whizz, Niall Kirkland, uses honey and banana to naturally sweeten these muffins, instead of packing in a load of refined sugar like shop-bought alternatives.
Now you can satisfy your cake-cravings and level-up your coffee break, no matter what your goals are.
