Blueberry Banana Muffins

Blueberry Banana Muffins

You will not believe how good these blueberry banana muffins are! I love banana bread and Mike loves blueberry muffins, so these were a huge hit in our house. This recipe truly is the best of both worlds. I have no idea why it took me so long to think of combining bananas and blueberries in muffin form, but I’m so glad I stumbled across this recipe. I had some freshly picked Michigan blueberries in the house, along with some overripe bananas and decided to search for a recipe to combine them. And let me tell you, we may never go back to straight blueberry muffins again, that’s how good these are! I hope you try these blueberry banana muffins and love them as much as we do. :)

    My daughter and I just made these. They are the best blueberry muffins! We had to stop ourselves at just one. I did the sugar to 1/2 cup and might take it down to 1/3 cup next time, but I don’t have a big sweet tooth.
    Thank you!

    These have a very unique flavor! I enjoyed them. I used half wheat flour, just two bananas, and put my frozen blueberries in a bowl of hot water at the beginning. They were mostly thawed by the time I was ready to fold them in. I didn’t use the whole 1.5 cups, I might cut it to 1 cup next time. Thanks for sharing!

    Just baked this earlier today. Taste great! Mum and I ate our pieces with satisfactory smiles! 😀 I cut down the sugar to half cup though. Thanks for the recipe, Megan!

    These came out awesome! I used whole wheat flour and ommited the sugar. They are so yummy from all of the fruit, sugar isn’t needed. Thanks for the great recipe.

    Sorry to be the one with a negative comment but I would leave out the salt & bicarbonate of soda as they leave a salty / soapy after taste, to be honest they were awful & in the bin now, but it may have been something I did wrong, give them a try.

      I’m sorry you didn’t like them! I never noticed a salty or soapy aftertaste, but everyone’s taste buds are different. Thanks for commenting and letting me know.

    I made these and they were great! I did substitute dried blueberries for fresh, since I had them on hand. I reduced the flour to 1 cup and added 1/2 cup grape nuts. I cut the sugar to 1/2 cup and added 1/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut.

    My husband and I enjoyed making these together. We followed the recipe exact!y as written. Made some regular sized muffins and some tiny bite sized ones. All turned out great. Only negative is they are so good we ate way too many!
