Skinny Blueberry Muffins!

Hello everyone!

Sorry it has been a whole week since I last posted! I did promise myself I woul


d try and get into a routine of twice a week of writing and posting blogs to start with. However it is my last week of my final placement this week and I’m a month countdown until my dissertation is due in (eeek!) so I’m all out of wack.


I guess it’s sort of expected when it’s your birthday at work or you leave a job in the UK you get the office cake? I don’t know where this came from but I love it! However most of my office are in diet mode for summer so I wanted to make cakes that were delicious without the added guilt. Also blueberry muffins can be eaten for breakfast bonus!
