Cinnamon Muffins with Joghurt and Blueberry Compote

Cinnamon Muffins with Joghurt and Blueberry Compote

If you are a Jamie Oliver Fan as I am, you probably have noticed that he just launched his new book ” Superfood Family”. I saw all those images of blueberry covered donuts but unfortunately I do not have a donut tin nor do I have the book yet. So I thought why not creating something similar with muffins?

I have to say proudly, you will not regret trying out this AHMAZING vegan recipe. We had them for breakfast but you could also eat them any other time of the day or just like I would love to : ALL DAY! 🙂

Blueberries : Superfood

If you eat blueberries, make sure they are either regional, organic or wild blueberries.
Blueberries contain a nigh amount of antioxidants, vitamin k, vitamin c and much more. They are good for your heart, memory and good against cancer cells.

I absolutely love blueberries or berries in general. The colors, the taste, I just love it all.
