Ever since we made the recipe for Healthier Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins, we have been sort of muffin-obsessed. And you know what, I am completely fine with this.

Both of these recipes, including these Healthier Banana Blueberry Muffins, are made with whole grains, honey, flax seeds, bananas, and fresh fruit. There isn’t one ingredient where I feel like I wouldn’t want them to have it for a snack.

And while these are supposed to be a morning delight. My kids take these for their mid-morning or after-school snack.

My son, Cannon, loves blueberries. He would much rather eat fresh blueberries over anything else, but my other kids are not the same way. They would rather have blueberries in something, like these banana blueberry muffins. 

The batter of these muffins is so delicious. I was more than happy to lick the bowl clean. Not only are these muffins delicious, but they are gorgeous as well.

What is great about this banana blueberry muffin recipe is that I actually prefer it over an overly sweet, sugared-up muffin.

Sandra’s Tips

  • These banana blueberry muffins are made with yogurt and honey, which are easy and delicious ways to replace butter, fatty oils, and white sugar.
  • I prefer Greek yogurt but will use sour cream if I don’t have yogurt. Using one of these two ingredients makes these muffins moist and fluffy. Even though I use whole wheat flour, this is not a dense muffin.

  1. Best banana muffins I have ever made and eaten. They came out super fluffy. The shape is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. They don’t shrink or sunk even after it’s cold. Each and every muffin top peaks beautifully. I am in love with these. Not only they are candy to the eyes, they taste just as delicious as they look. Light, fluffy, and moist. They are made in heaven. I will recommend this recipe to all my friends. Or better yet, make some more to share with them.

    1. Thank you for pointing it out! I have fixed it to show when they are added, in step 3 with the other wet ingredients.

    1. Oops! It must have slipped from the recipe somehow. It has been fixed! The mashed bananas are mixed in with the other wet ingredients.

      1. I have now made these twice.
        Absolutely great recipe.
        Deelish and a quick calorie/nutrition check makes this my go to recipe now. Thanks . The system won’t accept my rating but definitely 5 star.

        1. I am so glad you like them! They really are a great healthy snack/breakfast. We are working on the rating system, thank you so much!

    1. I haven’t tried them with frozen, but it should work just fine if you thaw them. The juice may make the batter a bit blue, but if you strain that out and rinse them then dry them off before adding it may help with that.
