Toddler Approved: Blueberry Banana Muffins

picture

Blueberries are on sale at Albertsons. 99 cents per pint. I bought two because I usually dip them in yogurt and freeze them for Austin. T decided to make blueberry muffins with the rest. I didn’t want to just make plain old blueberry muffins, so I added banana to the mix. It was either banana or orange.

**They came out perfect in the mini muffin tin, but are a little dense in the regular sized tin. I combined two recipes, so I may need some revisions. Any suggestions are welcome 🙂

8. Spoon muffin mix into muffin tins. I used one mini tin and one regular tin.

9. Put muffin tin into oven and bake for ~18 minutes.

  • Mini Muffins: check after 15 minutes with a toothpick.
  • Regular Muffins: check after 18 minutes (don’t cook longer than 20 minutes)

The muffins definitely look like they are bleeding blue since I used regular sized blueberries, but OH SO YUMMY! Best when served with a glass of milk. And of course, they are toddler approved. 😉
