How to make the best Banana Blueberry Muffins
- I like to use muffin liners for this recipe because the muffins are very moist! They will be easier to remove from the pan and easier to store.
- Instead of melted butter, you can also use the same amount canola oil. I like to use melted butter because of its flavor.
- You can use fresh or frozen blueberries for this recipe. If you are using frozen blueberries don’t thaw them and don’t work the batter too much after adding them because they will bleed into the batter.
- Spotty bananas work best for this recipe because they are sweeter and mash more easily.
- You can reduce the amount of sugar to 1/3 cup if your bananas are very ripe and sweet.
- Don’t over-mix the batter! This is important for every muffin recipe. To ensure that your muffins are light and fluffy mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients until just barely combined and no more dry flour is visible.
- Top these muffins with a little bit coarse sugar before baking or with a crumb topping (2 Tbsp butter, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 2 Tbsp brown sugar, 1/2 cup all-purpose flour)
- Don’t let the muffins cool in the muffin pan! Give them a couple minutes to cool off in the pan, then remove them from the pan and transfer them to a cooling rack.
Can you freeze Banana Blueberry Muffins?
You can freeze these banana muffins. Allow them to cool completely then put them in an airtight freezer bag and freeze for up to three months. Thaw them on the counter for 2-3 hours or overnight in the refrigerator, then bring the muffins to room temperature or warm them up in the microwave.
