Jillian Michael's Blueberry Banana Muffins

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by StephanieNS

This muffin recipe is from celebrity fitness guru Jillian Michaels. These are extremely healthy and really do taste good. One thing I love about them is that they are not too sweet. Great for breakfast or a pre-workout snack.

They will do if you want something to eat but they were not the best. I should have known the time was off because when I cook other (less healthy with butter and eggs) muffins I use 375 for 30 minutes and they are perfect. Whole wheat flour is heavy so the batter was thick. I added a third banana because I knew they would be dry. I will try this recipe again and use the lower heat and time. I will most likely add an egg as well. Adding the extra banana gave me more batter so had more than 12 muffins. To cook the second set of 3 big muffins I used the standard cooking temp and they came out much lighter.
