Sweet Treat Tuesday-Blueberry Banana Muffins (and a link up)

If you've been following my blog for any amount of time, you probably already realize that I like to make muffins. My boys love them and so do I! So I'm always trying out new recipes. A week or so ago, we decided to put a twist on the traditional blueberry muffin, we made banana blueberry muffins. They were delish! Easy to make and yummy to eat. Do you have some favorite muffin recipes? You can click here to see some of my other favorites, but I want to see what you like! I've included a linky at the end of the post so I can get some new muffin recipes. Link up as many as you like. If you don't have a link, then post the recipe in the comments section. Happy muffin baking!

Blueberry Banana Muffins
slightly adapted from Warm Vanilla Sugar

Makes 12 muffins

1 1/2 cups whole white wheat flour (or all purpose)
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups mashed banana (3 or 4 large bananas)
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
3/4 cup blueberries

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Line a 12-cup muffin pan with baking cups (I spray my paper cups with nonstick spray so the paper will come off easier when eating.)

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Combine the egg, mashed banana, and melted butter in a large bowl and stir until thoroughly blended. Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture and stir until just moist. Gently fold in the blueberries. If you don’t want blue muffins, use fresh blueberries, or coat frozen blueberries with flour before adding them to your muffin batter. Divide batter evenly among 12 muffin cups, filling each 2/3 full. I also added a couple of frozen blueberries to the tops of each muffin before baking them.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the tops of the muffins spring back when lightly touched and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of one muffin.

Remove muffins from pan immediately and place on a wire rack to cool.
