These light and fluffy blueberry banana muffins are perfect for a quick weekday breakfast and are bursting with juicy blueberries and banana flavour.
We bake a lot of muffins around here, they are perfect for a quick breakfast on the go or a little afternoon pick me up. And no matter the recipe, our girls seem to gobble them up. So while it doesn’t always happen, we do try to bake fresh muffins to have on hand each week.

Nick whipped up a batch of these delicious Blueberry Banana Muffins, and I have to admit, he’s becoming quite the muffin connoisseur. He’s developed an amazing basic muffin recipe to which we add different flavour combinations and so far every single one has been a winner. We’ve shared the recipes for our Banana Coconut Muffins, Apple Crumble Muffins, Raspberry Muffins, Blueberry Muffins, and Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins. They are all so good, but without a doubt, our Raspberry Muffin recipe is the most popular. Have you tried it yet? We’d love to know what you think!
These Blueberry Banana muffins are a favourite of mine though. I’ve always loved blueberry muffins, but the addition of ripe bananas and banana-flavoured yogurt take it to another level. Seriously, these blueberry banana muffins are light, fluffy and absolutely addictive.
It’s such a simple recipe to make, and most of the ingredients are staples in our home so it makes whipping up a batch of these muffins so easy. I’m not sure about you, but we always seem to have over-ripe bananas in the cupboard and these muffins are a great way to use them up.
We hope you’ll give these muffins a try and let us know what you think. Be sure to leave us a comment below!
