Blueberry Banana Nut Muffins

I don’t think I’ve stopped eating since Christmas Eve, nor do I remember what it feels like to be hungry.  We are truly blessed.  Adding to the gluttony, I finally had a chance to use those browning bananas on the counter.

This muffin recipe is a combo of a couple recipes I found online with a few of my own tweaks (less sugar, less salt, more whole wheat flour and more bananas).  They turned out fluffy, moist and mouth watering taaaasty…Enjoy!

Blueberry Banana Nut Muffins
1/2 cup melted butter
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 ripe bananas, smashed
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup milk or buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup fresh/frozen blueberries
1 cup chopped walnuts
Optional:  a dash of ground cinnamon and a dash of ground nutmeg

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Grease muffin cups or line with liners.
  3. Combine butter, sugar, and mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl using a wooden spoon or spatula.
  4. Mix in egg, milk, and vanilla.  Sprinkle in the baking soda and salt.
  5. Add the flour and mix until just incorporated.  Fold in the blueberries and chopped walnuts.  Do not overmix.
  6. Divide mixture equally into muffin cups.
  7. Optionally, sprinkle the muffin tops with cinnamon.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until done.  Insert a toothpick into the center of the muffin; if it comes out clean, it’s done!

    I gave a batch of these muffins to my boyfriend’s mom and she said that they were the BEST muffins she’s ever had and she’s an impeccable chef…and Korean. That says a lot. Huge sigh of relief from me!
