Incorporate blueberry jam/jelly into the mixture.
If you can’t get enough of a blueberry flavour in a banana blueberry muffin, add a dollop of blueberry jam into the middle of each muffin. Homemade is best, as you can adjust the sugar to your needs. However, store-bought is also a great option. Feel free to experiment with jams from other fruits, like raspberries!
Toss your blueberries in the dry mixture.
Having all the blueberries sink to the bottom of the blueberry banana bread muffins is always a letdown. You can avoid this by taking a spoonful of your flour and tossing it with the berries before incorporating them into the batter. If you toss them in the flour mixture, the berries will stick better to the batter and stay more spread out during baking. Additionally, tossing them in flour means you won’t have blueberries stuck together while they cook in the muffin tin.
Note: This tip also works for other recipes/ingredients. For example, you can toss shredded carrots and chopped nuts in the dry ingredients before incorporating them into the batter for carrot muffins or blueberry banana nut muffins so it doesn’t sink to the bottom.
Don’t thaw your frozen blueberries.
Toss your blueberries directly into your batter (once tossing them in flour) without thawing. If you thaw frozen blueberries, you risk having mushy berries in these easy banana blueberry muffins.
Note: These muffins are great alongside dishes like Loaded Veg Breakfast Muffins, Chocolate Swirl Custard Toast, and Mini Pancakes with Biscoff when crafting a breakfast spread for guests or a significant other.
Yes! You can bake with fresh blueberries instead of frozen ones. You’ll still want to coat them in flour before adding them to the batter to help keep them afloat in the banana blueberry muffins.
Yes, you can absolutely use gluten-free flour in this recipe! Use a 1:1 swap. As a note, you may need to add slightly more liquid to the batter to account for this swap, as gluten-free flour absorbs more liquid than regular flour.
These are the best blueberry banana muffins for a reason – they travel well. Even though there’s yoghurt in the recipe, you do not need to refrigerate these muffins. However, they will stay good for longer if you refrigerate any leftovers.
Yes! They’re great for meal prep since you can freeze banana blueberry muffins. Once fully cooled, remove them from the muffin cups, pack them in an airtight container or baggie, and then put them in the freezer. They should be good for up to three months.
There’s no need to reheat the muffins. If you have frozen some, let them thaw in the fridge overnight, and they’re ready to eat!
