Banana Blueberry / Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins

I just love Mini Muffins. They are fabulous and so easy to bake – bakes in less than 30 minutes. Their irresistible bite size form makes it perfect for kids and for people who are trying to watch their diet yet enjoy a little bit of sweet portion.

Mini Muffins – yummy in the tummy 😀

Here’s the recipe for you! Happy baking 🙂
