How to Make the Best Banana Blueberry Muffins
A great way to get the kids involved in the kitchen, these muffins are super easy to make!
- Mash the Bananas. Add the bananas to a large bowl, and use a fork to mash them until smooth.
- Whisk the Wet Ingredients. Add the sugar and a beaten egg, mixing to combine. Then, stir in the melted butter and blueberries.
- Mix the Dry Ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine the baking soda, baking powder, salt, and flour until smooth.
- Combine the Ingredients. Working in batches, stir the dry ingredients into the wet until smooth.
- Bake. Pour the batter into a greased muffin tin. Bake until the muffins are fluffy and lightly golden brown.
- Enjoy. Let your muffins cool slightly, and enjoy!
Use Room Temperature Ingredients. For easy mixing, let your ingredients come to room temperature before mixing.
Weigh. To ensure your muffins turn out perfectly, we recommend using a food scale to measure your ingredients as measuring cups aren’t always super consistent.
Use Super Ripe Bananas. The riper your bananas, the easier they’ll be to mash and the sweeter your muffins will taste!
Don’t Overmix. Be careful to mix your ingredients until they are just combined. Continuing to mix will result in dense, tough muffins, and nobody wants that!
