We had some VERY ripe bananas in the refrigerator that I had to use up and a huge bag of blueberries from my generous neighbor Jack. Both of my kids wanted muffins for breakfast so I decided to make some blueberry and banana muffins. They couldn’t be easier to make, they smelled amazing while baking, and they were moist and so delicious. My kids gobbled up three each and loved every single bite.Blueberry and Banana Muffins: Recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net
- ½ cup of butter, softened
- ¾ cup of brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 3 overripe bananas
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups of flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1 ½ cups of frozen blueberries, divided
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees then coat a muffin pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until creamy. Add the eggs, bananas, and vanilla then continue beating until well combined.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt together, mix well. Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture and stir until just combined. Add the 1 cup of blueberries and gently mix them into the batter.
Spoon the batter evenly into each muffin tin. Add the last 1/2 cup of the remaining blueberries equally to each muffin, pushing them in gently.
Let the muffins cool on a rack. Slather with butter and enjoy!
