This recipe is so simple to pull together that it can even be made for a quick breakfast!

Blueberries

    • Fresh or frozen will work in this recipe. If using frozen berries, they do not need to defrost first but the muffins may need a few minutes extra to cook.
    • Frozen blueberries may discolor the batter but still taste great.
    • Toss blueberries with a spoonful of flour before adding to the batter. This helps distribute them evenly throughout the batter
    • Add in raspberries or blackberries along with (or in place of) blueberries!

How to Make Blueberry Banana Muffins

Homemade blueberry banana muffins couldn’t be easier to make!

  1. Mix wet and dry ingredients separately.
  2. Mix them together just until combined. Fold in flour-coated blueberries.
  3. Bake (per recipe below) until golden brown and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

PRO TIP: Coating fruit in flour before mixing it in keeps the fruit from “bleeding” into the batter and turning everything blue. It also helps to keep berries from sinking to the bottom of the muffins!

Muffin Tips

  • Do not overmix the batter, overmixing can cause muffins to be dense and chewy instead of fluffy.
  • Allow muffins to cool right inside the muffin tin wells a few minutes before cooling on a rack.
  • Muffins can be stored in an airtight container on the counter for 4 to 5 days.
  • These are great to make-ahead and freeze up to 4 months.
