Blueberry Banana Muffins
These soft and fluffy banana muffins are filled with blueberries and flavored with vanilla. They bake up perfectly - crisp edges, fluffy on the inside, juicy blueberries in every bite. This easy recipe comes together in minutes and no mixer is needed.
- ½ cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
- ⅓ 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..
