I am not particularly found of "regular" bananas. I will eat them in fruit salad or throw them in a smoothie, but if I want a piece of fruit, it's never a banana I reach for.
However, I absolutely LOVE them in breads and muffins and any other baked concoction. Strange I know, but true! And I had quite a few very ripe bananas (that usually end up in the freezer for smoothies), big beautiful blueberries that I had picked up at Trader Joe's, and my ever faithful lemons! So I was ready to tackle this recipe. Banana Blueberry Lemon Muffins
It was super easy to put together and the results were great. The banana was definitely the predominate flavor, but also led to the extreme moistness of the muffin. The only change I made to the recipe was to put the lemon rind INTO the batter rather than on top. Then I just topped the muffins with sparkling sugar!!
Is your mouth watering?? You can see the berries bursting!!
These two muffins made their way to my neighbor!!
And of course I had to sample one!!
It needed a LOT of sampling!! YUM!Pin It Now!
