A Morning Hit

Banana muffins are one of my favorite things to bake in the morning! They’re so quick to get into the oven. They take less than 20 minutes to bake and they make the house smell amazing. Plus, they’re guaranteed to be a hit with my kids.

I’ve been making our go-to Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins for ages now, but I decided to shake things up. So I swapped the chocolate chips for tangy blueberries. And WOW! I’m just sorry I didn’t try this banana blueberry muffin recipe sooner.

These muffins are incredible! The texture is perfectly moist, soft and a little spongy. The flavor is sweet, but not too sweet, and the bites of sweet-tart blueberries are so scrumptious.

I recommend enjoying one of these warm from the oven. Split it open, smear with some butter and let it melt into the little air pockets. Oh my goodness, y’all, it’s heavenly.

Fresh or Frozen Blueberries?

I prefer to bake with fresh blueberries, but frozen berries work well, too! Here are a few tips to baking with frozen blueberries.

You don’t have to thaw frozen blueberries before baking. But if you do, follow these steps for best results.

  • Place frozen blueberries in a colander in the sink or over a bowl, if you want to collect the juice.
  • Allow to thaw completely.
  • Once thawed, place on a baking sheet lined with paper towels.
  • Pat dry with paper towels.

Toss frozen or thawed blueberries in a bit of flour. The flour helps berries stay suspended in the batter and prevents them from sinking to the bottom of your muffins. It can also help with any excess moisture that may come off frozen blueberries as they thaw while baking. The flour coating will also prevent the batter from turning bluish-purple.

How to Make Banana Blueberry Muffins

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan generously with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, melt the butter and let cool slightly. Whisk in the sugar then the egg and vanilla.
  • Stir in the flour and baking soda.

  • Fold in the mashed bananas until just combined. Gently stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Fill each prepared muffin cup almost full with batter. Garnish the top of the batter with some more chocolate chips, if desired.
  • Bake muffins for 16-18 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let the muffins cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool to completely.

How to Serve and Store Banana Blueberry Muffins

Serve warm or at room temperature. Store leftover muffins in an airtight container on the counter for 2-3 days, or in the refrigerator for up to a week.

To freeze banana blueberry muffins, allow them to cool completely. Wrap each muffin tightly in plastic wrap. Then store in the freezer in a freezer-safe container or in individual freezer-safe baggies.

Thaw banana muffins at room temperature uncovered so they don’t absorb too much of the moisture. They should maintain great quality if frozen for 2-3 months.
