Blueberry Banana Muffins are so delicious and easy to make. These Blueberry Banana Muffins are made with a few pantry ingredients, and are so moist and bursting with juicy blueberries. They’re perfect for a breakfast treat or an after school snack!
We love our muffins here at I Knead to Eat and so I though it was time to introduce you to another muffin favourite…these Blueberry Banana Muffins.
First, let’s talk about how pretty and delicious do these muffins look? Also, let’s talk about how easy muffins are compared to making cupcakes, because cupcakes always need frosting and muffins do not.
So I almost, always opt for muffins because even though they’re not as pretty as cupcakes, they’re just as delicious!
Also, I don’t know about you, but I think bananas and blueberries are a match made in heaven. The bananas are sweet and the blueberries are juicy and tart…what more could we want when it comes to muffins!
Also, let’s just pretend these muffins are fairly healthy because they have two kinds of fruit in them…that’s healthy right? I thought so too! 😛
So How Do You Make Blueberry Banana Muffins?
Blueberry Banana Muffins are super easy to make, and use a basic standard muffin recipe.
This recipe requires no mixer, so it’s even easier than other muffin recipes.
If you want the whole recipe right now, scroll down to the bottom of this post to the recipe card.
But I want to talk about a couple of ingredients that make these blueberry banana muffins super moist.
First, I use oil instead of melted butter, because oil adds a lot of moisture to the muffins. Also, since the bananas have a strong flavour, adding butter doesn’t make much of a difference.
I also use brown sugar in this muffin recipe instead of white sugar, because brown sugar has more molasses, so it adds a more complex flavour and also makes the these blueberry banana muffins more moist.
However, if you don’t have brown sugar on hand, then you may sure replace it with white sugar.
An easy trick to transfer the muffin batter to the muffin tin is by using a scoop. This ensures less mess and a more evenly spread batter.
How to Store and Freeze Blueberry Banana Muffins
- These banana blueberry muffins can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
- You can also freeze these banana blueberry muffins. After baking the banana muffins wait until they are at complete room temperature. Then wrap them with cling film, and place in ziplock bags and freeze. To thaw the banana muffins, place them out of the freezer at room temperature or gently microwave for a few seconds.
I do hope you try these delicious Blueberry Banana Muffins, they’re super yummy and satisfying for a quick snack.
