Who loves muffins? I do! My kids do as well. I love anything with lavender and I think it goes well with the bananas and blueberries! What is great about this recipe is that there are ways to modify it to make it healthier. For example, I use honey instead of sugar and coconut oil instead of canola oil. You can use gluten free flours as well and really make this recipe your own!
Here is the recipe for banana blueberry lavender muffins:
What you need: (makes 12 muffins)
- 1 and 3/4 cups organic flour
- 1 cup sugar or sweetener of choice (I use 1/2 cup organic honey instead)

- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 mashed ripe bananas
- 1/2 cup milk or dairy alternative
- 1/4 cup cooking oil of choice (I use coconut oil)
- 1 egg beaten (since I was out of eggs I used egg replacer)
- 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen will do)
- 1-5 drops lavender vitality oil
- Optional – heart-shaped silicone molds (if you want heart-shaped instead of regular muffins)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
