Blueberry Muffins

Today feels just like a Friday to me, because  a) I am all done classes for the week.  b) I don’t have any homework tonight.  c) I spent my evening with an iced starbucks coffee while meandering my way through Whole Foods. 

To top it all off, I made a big ol’ batch of blueberry-banana muffins. :mrgreen:  I pulled out the Joy of Cooking to find a basic muffin recipe, and then preceded to add a bit of this and that as I went along.

Blueberry-Banana Muffins

  • 2 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1 T. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1/4 c. olive oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 c. mashed, very ripe banana (about 1-1/2 bananas)
  • 1-1/2 c. frozen blueberries
  1. Whisk together first 4 ingredients up to nutmeg.
  2. Whisk together next 7 ingredients up to banana in a separate bowl.
  3. Add blueberries to dry mix; stir until blueberries are coated with the flour.
  4. Add wet mix to dry mix.  Stir just until moistened (do not overmix…this toughens the final product!)
  5. Pour batter into 12-muffin pan coated with cooking spray.  Bake for 17-20 minutes at 400 degrees F.

They’re ready when a toothpick inserted comes out clean! 😀  Let ’em sit for a few minutes before popping them out and letting them cool on a wire rack.

They’re delicious hot from the oven, with a heavenly sweet aroma from the bananas and juicy blueberries.  I ate mine with a fork and a handful of walnuts! :mrgreen:

These have a subtle sweetness from the blueberries, and the flavor of banana mingles in for that extra touch.  And they’re super fluffy. 😀

Question: Do you like to follow recipes word for word, or do you find yourself changing things up as you go?

  1. I like to follow recipes word for word but usually end up changing something. It kind of aggravates me a bit, but more often than not whatever it was that I was making turned out to be good regardless of my changes. I think it is just one of those things, you know? Those muffins looks to good!

  3. I made this recipe for my sister (so that she’ll start eating breakfast) and I substituted 1/2c. chopped walnuts for the blueberries, and sprinkled a pinch of brown sugar on top and they were a MAJOR hit in my house! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
