These homemade blueberry muffins are a guilt-free dessert that is moist and soft from the yogurt and the banana. You can either buy store bought applesauce or make your own by boiling an apple and blending it until it is in a liquid form. You will get the best results if you use a very ripe banana that is browning. It’s a perfect way to use up your overripe bananas so you won’t have to waste them and it makes your muffins sweet and gives it a great texture.
I used Fage Greek yogurt, whole wheat flour, and skim milk but you can also use plain yogurt, almond flour, white enriched flour, and 2% or whole milk. These muffins are so much healthier than anything you can buy at the store and very simple to make!
