Blueberry Banana Muffins

Not only are these Blueberry Banana Muffins are easy to make, they are perfect for breakfast or as a snack!

We had some bananas just sitting around, and like all other produce here in Colorado, went brown quicker than I would have liked, so when D.J. saw this, he knew I was going to make Banana Muffins, so he brought home some blueberries and asked me to make him Blueberry Banana Muffins instead!

This recipe originally comes from my friend, Becky – I just made a couple tweaks to make it my own, and added the blueberries, of course.  But, any recipe that we get from Becky is always a hit!

These muffins couldn’t be easier to make – in fact, Anthony made these ones for this post all by him self.  He has been watching a lot of Food Network lately, specifically Kids Baking Championship, and he is determined that he will be on the show one day, so every chance that he gets to bake, it takes it.  And, he took that opportunity with these muffins.  I think that Duff and Valerie would be very impressed.

You don’t need a stand mixer to make them either, we just used ours because it sits out on the counter, and the bowl was already out from making homemade pizza dough on Saturday.

Not only do I love that this recipe is packed full of fruit, but the ingredients can be substituted so easily to make the muffins have a completely different flavor – like chocolate chip muffins, or by substituting the butter for coconut oil for a healthier muffin.  However you want to change it up, these muffins come out perfect every time!

If you have a little bit of extra time, whip up 1 tbsp honey with 1/2 stick softened butter and spread that on the muffins when they are still warm – you’ll be glad that you did!
