  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 3 overripe bananas mashed
  • 1 cup milk or buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice omit if using buttermilk
  • ½ cup grapeseed oil or canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • cups all-purpose flour plus 1 tablespoon for tossing the blueberries
  • teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees.

  2. Spray a muffin tin with baking spray. Set aside. 

    **Note - Muffin liners may be used, but they aren't necessary.

  3. Toss the blueberries with 1 tablespoon flour and set aside.

  4. In a small bowl, stir together the milk and lemon juice (if NOT using buttermilk). Set aside for 2-3 minutes.

  5. In a large bowl, whisk together the mashed bananas, buttermilk OR buttermilk substitute, eggs, oil, brown sugar, vanilla, and lemon zest.

  6. In a medium bowl, whisk together the 2½ cups all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

  7. Add the dry ingredients into the wet, banana mixture and stir gently.

  8. Add the flour-coated blueberries to the muffin batter and gently fold them into the batter just until the blueberries are incorporated. Do not overmix.

  9. Use an ice-cream scoop or large spoon to fill the muffin tins 3/4's full with the muffin batter.

  10. Bake in a preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the muffins are golden and when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  11. Cool for 10 minutes, and then run a knife around each muffin to loosen them from the tin.

  12. Turn all the muffins out onto a cooling rack and cool completely.
