This banana blueberry muffins recipe is a family favorite. There is just something extra special about miniature desserts when you serve them to family and friends.  A traditional muffin may not look impressive but turn it into a miniature dessert and it becomes a treat worthy of entertaining.  It has all the delicious tastes of two of my favorite muffins desserts in one miniature dessert treat.

Not only do muffins make a nice dessert, they can be part of a healthy breakfast. With these miniature muffins, portion control is simply a matter of enjoying one and not three. Typically, today’s muffins are much larger than what we really need. Have a scrambled egg, a lean protein, and one miniature muffin and you are all set to start your day.

I found this Banana Blueberry Muffin recipe in the cookbook Petite Treats by Christy Beaver and Morgan Greenseth and reprinted with permission.

  2. Sift together the sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the bananas on low until mashed. Increase the speed to medium. Add the egg, butter, and vanilla. Mix briefly until blueberries are evenly distributed.
  4. Using a 1 inch ice cream scoop, fill each muffin liner to just below the brim.
  5. Bake until the tops are lightly browned, 20 to 22 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through.

Substitutions:

If you don’t have fresh blueberries, you can use frozen blueberries that have been thawed. Make sure that you drink them well before adding them. You could also substitute chopped strawberries, raspberries, blackberries or even dried cranberries if you want to. I like adding fresh fruit rather than dried because the sugar content is lower.

Pro Tip:

Of course, you’ll need to have a miniature muffin pan to make these muffins. I find that the silicone muffin pans work wonderfully. The muffins don’t stick and there is no need to buy mini liners or scrub a muffin pan when you’re done baking.
