Banana berry yoghurt muffins

Tuesday, 24 Jul 12

Grab one for breakfast racing out the door or enjoy one with your cup of tea in the afternoon, these muffins are a little bit naughty but are a much healthier alternative than most of the muffins you'll get at a cafe. Use Stevia (herbal sweetener from the supermarket) instead of the brown sugar to make it even healthier! The kids will also LOVE them - pop one in their lunch box and see them disappear.
