Buttermilk banana and raspberry muffins

Buttermilk Muffins and juice

At the weekends I usually make muffins for a breakfast treat. Shop bought muffins are generally made with poor quality vegetable oil and loads of sugar. These are a world away from those, very little added sugar, gluten free, and if you want to go dairy free just substitute the buttermilk for lukewarm water. I bring the leftovers to work to share if there are any other hungry early starters around, like me.
