Blueberry Banana Muffins

Recipes By August 21, 2016 Tags: , , 2 Comments

I have been making this recipe since my kids were little – so forever.  I usually make it into a quick bread loaf but decided to try muffins this go around.  They turned out great and I was able to use up my very ripe bananas in the process.muffins4a

I like to use foil liners so the muffins don’t stick. These muffins also freeze well.

Blueberry Banana Muffins

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Put liners in muffin tin.muffins1a

  • 1 stick butter – softened
  • ½ cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 – 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 – 6 oz. carton of blueberry yogurt
  • ½ cup blueberries

Cream butter and sugar, add egg and mix well.  Stir in flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.  In separate bowl, smash peeled bananas, then add yogurt and mix together.  Stir banana/yogurt mix into batter. Then gently stir in blueberries.

Fill muffin cups about ¾ full.  Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.  Makes about 1 ½ dozen muffins (or 1 loaf).muffins2a




Marvelous Apple Muffins

Muffins are a wonderful food for both adults and kids. They freeze well, transport well and are easy to make. A batch can be whipped up in just a few minutes, usually with ingredients on hand. You can even substitute ingredients, if necessary – muffins are very cooperative and forgiving.

I still have apples left over from apple picking the other day. I didn’t want them to go to waste, so I decided to make a batch of apple muffins. I have been making these delicious muffins for years. They are incredibly moist. You could add some chopped nuts or raisins if you desire.
