How to make the perfect banana blueberry muffins
- Don’t over-mix the batter! This is my BEST TIP for the perfect fluffy muffins every single time! If you’re left with muffins that are closer in texture to hockey pucks, it’s almost certainly because you mixed the batter too vigorously and for too long. Be gentle with the batter once you add the dry ingredients and stir only until the flour just barely disappears. Use a wooden spoon or silicone spatula and mix by hand to avoid over-mixing. Making muffins with a stand mixer or a hand mixer almost ALWAYS ensures you’ll over-mix, so making them by hand is the way to go!!
- Choose very ripe bananas! Very ripe bananas add so much more sweetness to the muffins than unripe ones.
- Bake quickly! The leavening agent in muffins is usually baking powder (sometimes with baking soda), which acts quickly as soon as the liquid and dry ingredients come together. To get fluffy muffins with the nice dome shape on top, get them in the oven as fast as you can after mixing.
- Let them cool! No one likes a gummy muffin that’s underdone on the inside. Let the muffins cool until they’re almost room temperature before digging in, since they continue baking on the inside even after they’ve been removed from the oven.
- Use fresh blueberries! Fresh blueberries are superior to frozen when it comes to muffins – they’re so much juicier, and they don’t colour the batter when you mix them in!

- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius) and prepare a 12-cup muffin tin by lining it with paper liners.
- In a large bowl, mash the bananas well.
- Add the sugar, eggs, oil, milk, and vanilla and whisk well to combine.
- Add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the blueberries on top of the flour and toss the berries just a little bit in the dry ingredients before combining everything together gently with a silicone spatula just until the flour disappears.
- Divide the batter between the muffin cups until they're about 3/4 full.
- Bake for about 19-23 minutes until the muffins are golden brown on top.
- Let the muffins cool in their tins for several minutes before removing them to a wire rack to finish cooling completely.
Storage InstructionsThese muffins keep well in an airtight container for up to 3 days
Freezer InstructionsFreeze these muffins in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to 3 months.
No-Fail TipsIf using frozen berries (not recommended), mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and combine the frozen berries with the flour mixture, making sure they're very well coated in the flour. Then combine the wet and dry ingredients. This will prevent the frozen berries from colouring the batter.
