Banana Blueberry Muffins for breakfast

Do you have an over-ripe banana from time to time? I know I do.This recipe uses your blender to mix the wet ingredients. It's so  easy to make this basic recipe for banana muffins. You can change it up by adding chopped pecans or walnuts, granola or even chocolate chips for a delicious change. This freezes well and is moist at room temperature. Serve with butter or blueberry jam.  Enjoy!


1 large egg
½ cup buttermilk
½ cup oil
1 large ripe banana
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 sup sugar
1 ½ sups blueberries (fresh or frozen)

  1. Preheat oven to 400o. Coat a large size (12 ) muffin tin or a small (24) muffin tin with cooking spray or line with paper liners.
  2.  In a blender mix the egg, buttermilk, oil and banana until smooth.
  3.  In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.
  4. Take ¼ cup of this flour mixture and toss it with the blueberries in a small bowl.
  5. Add the buttermilk mixture from the blender and stir until just mixed.
  6. Gently stir in the blueberries.
  7. Scoop the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
  8. Bake 20–25 minutes according to the pan size, until the top springs back easily and a tester comes out clean.
  9. Let the muffins sit for 5 minutes before removing from pan.
  10. Serve warm or room temperature.
