  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mashed very ripe bananas about 2-3 bananas
  • ½ cup plain yogurt or sour cream
  • 1 ⅔ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ cups fresh blueberries divided
  • 1 tablespoon all purpose flour for mixing with the blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar for topping the muffins


  • Preheat oven to 375°F with a rack in the middle of the oven.
  • In a large bowl, whisk melted butter and brown sugar and ½ cup granulated sugar until well combined, about 1 full minute. Add eggs and vanilla, whisking until combined. Then add mashed banana and sour cream, whisking until combined.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and use a rubber spatula to lightly stir the batter until almost fully combined. Toss 1 cup blueberries with 1 tablespoon of flour, then stir into the batter.
  • Grease 12 standard-sized muffin cups or line with paper liners. Divide the batter evenly among the cups, filling almost all the way to the top. Using the remaining ¼ cup blueberries, add a few blueberries to the top of each muffin. Sprinkle the tops with granulated sugar. Bake for 18-22 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Place the pan on a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes, then remove the muffins from the pan and place them directly on the rack to cool..
