Banana Blueberry muffins

This weekend I made a batch of these and my husband declared them to be the best muffin I’ve ever made. Since they were my own creation I thought I would share them with you.
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tbs melted shortening.
  • 3 large overripe bananas mashed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup blueberries

Combine the flour, baking soda and powder in a medium sized bowl. In a second medium sized bowl mix the sugar, shortening, egg and banana until uniform. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mold together until just moistened. Gently fold in the blueberries.
If you fill the muffin tins 2/3 of the way you can get a dozen muffins out of this recipe. But I like to fill them all the way up which gives me only 8 of them.
Bake them for 25 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
Let me know if you give them a try. Next time I’m going to have to double it up. My husband and son couldn’t get enough of them.

Update: Haley gave these a try and noticed that the batter was pretty thick. It is a pretty thick batter. She added a 1/4 cup of milk (I would have thrown in another banana). They still came out great.


  1. These look super good! I am going to print out a copy. Next time my bananas brown, I am going to make this :)
