Banana Blueberry Mini Muffins

Mini muffins are fun.  They are the perfect size for little hand and muffins are great for breakfast or a nice snack.  I was planning on making banana muffins, but I got my hands on some cheap blueberries so I decided to add those too.  As soon as they were cooled off my taste testers were ready!


The littlest taste tester approves!

Banana Blueberry Mini Muffins
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 TBS vanilla extract
2 cups flour (I used whole wheat pastry flour)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 pint blueberries

  • Cream together shortening and sugar
  • Add eggs and vanilla and beat until combined
  • In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt
  • Add the flour mixture 1/2 cup at a time to the egg mixture until completely incorporated
  • Mix in mashed bananas
  • Then fold in blueberries
  • Put mini muffin liners in a mini muffin tin
  • Fill each liner to the top with the batter
  • Bake in a 325 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until cooked through (check after 15 minutes)
  • Allow muffins to cool in the pan for 5 minutes and then remove to a cooling rack to cool completely
These are definitely quick and easy to make.  We love muffins and I just don't make them often enough.  But with all the spring/summer fruit coming in I will definitely be using this as a great base recipe.  Next time I think I will try some strawberry banana muffins....yum!

Below is the nutritional information per mini `muffin.  This recipe yields about 36 mini muffins.
