These Blueberry Banana Bread Muffins are light and fluffy, yet moist from added yogurt and mashed bananas. The little bursts from the blueberries take these easy muffins to the next level!
Remember when I told you that sometimes I have so many bananas in my kitchen I feel like raising a chimp? Well, it happened all over again.
I was actually really glad because I had been craving this super yummy banana bread for days and very ripe bananas were all I needed to get started. Except for the fact that this time, I decided to make this banana bread recipe a bit differently.
Don't ask me why, but I happen to like the muffin concept for banana bread. I love that you can control your portion size and that you will basically never get bored with a banana bread muffin because of the endless creative possibilities.
That being said, I decided to turn my favorite banana bread into a muffin and add blueberries. Obviously, because blueberries are not only delicious but also good for you.
In fact, this whole Blueberry Banana Bread Muffin is good for you. Or at least good enough to be eaten as a breakfast, dessert AND snack on the same day.
I'm thinking next time, I might add some oats (don't tell my boyfriend) to these Blueberry Banana Bread Muffins, just to make them even healthier and to give me an additional excuse to stuff my face with these delicious fluffy Banana Bread Muffins. Like I needed one anyway...
I used frozen blueberries for my Blueberry Banana Bread Muffins, but you could also use fresh ones. Just add a dash of lemon juice to the batter to avoid this green yukky coloration and you're good to go.
Also, my muffin tin isn't very deep so you might end up with only 12 Blueberry Banana Bread Muffins - which is actually convenient since you would end up making a single batch.
As one last thing, I'd like to point out that these Blueberry Banana Bread Muffins are highly addictive. I repeat they are highly addictive. So if you're planning to eat just one, don't fool yourself and ring on your neighbour's door.
I have a batch of blueberry-stuffed banana bread muffins right next to me and they're difficult to resist! Is it ok to have muffins for lunch?

Blueberry Banana Bread Muffins
These Blueberry Banana Bread Muffins taste like banana bread in muffin form! They are perfectly light and fluffy, yet moist from added yogurt and mashed bananas. The little bursts from the blueberries take these easy muffins to the next level!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- ¾ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup sugar
- ¼ cup butter softened
- 2 large eggs
- 1 ½ cups mashed ripe banana about 3 large bananas
- ⅓ cup plain low-fat yogurt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- cooking spray
Preheat oven to 350°. Line a muffin tin with liners and lightly spray with cooking spray.
Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt, stirring with a whisk.
Place sugar and butter in a large bowl, and beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended, for about 1 minute. You can also use a whisk.
Add the eggs to the batter, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add banana, yogurt, and vanilla and beat just until blended.
Add the flour mixture and beat the muffin batter at low speed just until moist. Gently incorporate blueberries using a spatula.
Spoon the batter into the lined muffin tin and bake the muffins at 350° for 30 to 35 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the muffin top is golden brown.
Cool the muffins for 10 minutes in the pan on a wire rack; then remove them from the pan. Cool the warm muffins on wire rack.
