Banana Blueberry Muffins

Banana Blueberry Muffins

This morning, after I’d already smashed a banana for banana bread, my kid asked if we could make blueberry muffins.  We only had 1/2 pint of blueberries in the house and I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to make them blueberry enough for him.

Then I had the brilliant idea of letting him push the few blueberries we did have into the tops of banana muffins. I cannot believe I’ve never done this before. For starters, the combination of blueberry and banana is divine. Plus, the muffins look so much more appealing with the blueberries sitting on top.

The baby agreed and a new recipe was added to our growning collection.
