Delicious Banana Blueberry Bran Muffins

These banana blueberry bran muffins are a perfect healthy treat anytime, but especially in pregnancy & postpartum. They are a great source of iron, fibre, healthy fats & energy, all things new mamas need. They freeze really well, so they are a perfect recipe to stock your freezer with before baby arrives. Plus they taste great!

These are a favourite recipe in our house. I make them at least once a month and everyone loves them. Even my toddler gobbles them up!

Warning: These muffins are very high in fibre so you may want to limit how many your little ones eat ;)

Enjoy!
