Healthy Mango & Banana Muffins

 These tropical-tasting muffins are nutritious & a great way to boost your fruit intake, especially for the kids! They are full of fibre & contain only low GI carbohydrates, so they will keep you feeling full & stabilise your blood sugar levels (great for diabetics!). They also use oats, which have beta-gluten, & chia seeds, which contain omega-3’s, so they are an excellent choice if you have high cholesterol! And best of all, they have no added sugar & use Natvia to naturally sweeten them along with the tropical fruits! Natvia is a natural sweetener made from the Stevia plant & is a healthy alternative to artificial sweeteners.
