My go to healthy desserts lately have been zucchini brownies and energy balls! They are more like little snacks, filled with nutrition!
Another recipe that I have been making this summer I feel has reached as close to perfection as it is going to get! It is scrumptious and it is healthy dessert.

My summer recipe inspiration!

This recipe was adapted from a recipe I found a few years ago from Simply Recipes.
It is probably not typically a dessert type food, but with all the added sweetness from the blueberries, it does taste like a dessert! (Don’t get me wrong, I love my chocolate desserts, but I wanted to make something a little healthier this time around!)

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 very ripe bananas, peeled
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup coconut sugar (can use granulated also)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups of gluten free (or regular) all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups rinsed blueberries

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F, and butter (or coconut oil) 2 muffin tins
2. In a mixing bowl, smash the ripe bananas with a fork until mostly smooth with a few small chunks.
3. Stir the butter into the bananas.
4. Stir in the sugar, egg, and vanilla extract.
5. Mix in the baking soda and 1tsp cinnamon.
6. Gently mix in the flour till batter still has a few chunks.
7. Gently fold the blueberries into the mix, make sure to not over mix.
8. Spoon the batter into your muffin tins, about 1/3 for each muffin. Sprinkle remaining cinnamon on top of each muffin.
9. Bake at 350°F for 20-25 min until a toothpick comes out clean.

    Inner fist pump! I just happened upon a bag of coconut sugar on sale a couple days ago and have been rather excited to find excuses to make things with it! 😛 I adore blueberries (and so does the sugar glider I’m babysitting 😛 )!

    This will be great for the blueberries I currently have frozen in my freezer that I was just wondering what I would do with! I’m a little late on commenting- birthday festivities and recovery didn’t lend itself to much blogging or commenting haha. Thank you for the birthday wishes!
