Blueberry Banana and Vanilla Muffins

Blueberry Banana & Vanilla Muffins myfavouritepastime.comI had two bananas left in my fruit basket, this morning, and two options: make banana-blueberry-smoothie or turn them info muffins for breakfast. I decided to make muffins and they’re already halfway gone. Today is such a pleasant day with lots of sunshine. What about you? what are you up to on a Sunday morning. Enjoy the rest of the day!

    1. Then perhaps I should have used one banana for a smoothie and the other for the muffins. We have smoothies at least five mornings a week. I agree with you totally!

  1. can you say BREAKFAST? Yum!
    I make a cake that tastes like muffins to me. I imagined this! Thank you for sharing! Awesome pic’s to, they make me hungry(er)!

  2. Sadly I don’t have any bananas but I sure do have blueberries galore in my freezer needing something done with them! This looks so tasty! I wonder if I could substitute applesauce for the bananas? Perhaps I’ll give it a try! The photos of your muffins are so clear I feel like I could just reach in and grab one…..or six! How has your weekend been?

    1. I think you can sub bananas with apples. I ate 3 of these muffins as soon as I pulled them out of the oven. My son ate six LOL. Tomorrow I probably will walk 1 km longer than usual to shed off muffin fat…. Today was great. Sunny and warm but I just stayed indoors the whole day. I spent some time planning for the rest of the year. Have a good evening, Sandy!!!

      1. Thanks Liz, am just about to try your recipe! Went for a walk on the beach yesterday looking for flattish stones and heart shaped stones and driftwood. It was blowing really cold so we didn’t linger too long! Did get a few rocks and bits of driftwood to make fairy doors! Kind of fun to do.
