This is a great way to use up any bananas that are getting a bit soft.  This mini-muffins are a great little snack or to take along to a shared morning tea.  It’s so easy for the kids to get involved with the stirring, or popping the blueberries on top, which my little helpers did ? I added the white chocolate option, and definitely recommend it!  The yoghurt makes this deliciously moist and light, and they’re perfect to freeze as well.
