Healthy Banana Bran Muffins with Blueberries

Back to school is in full swing! Charlotte isn't in school yet, but a lot of her friends are, so I've been observing and trying to learn all of the tips and tricks because I know we will be there before I know it! I've partnered with some of my favorite bloggers for more back-to-school recipes - scroll to the bottom to check them out too!

As I child, I remember really looking forward to after school snacks! It was always soooo exciting when we came through the door, and smelled a freshly baked treat waiting for us. These healthy banana bran muffins are the perfect after-school snack. Easy for busy schedules, delicious for the kiddos, and healthy for all of us! I made these this past weekend for a quick and easy breakfast, and they were gone in a flash!


1/3 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup bran cereal
2 bananas, mashed
5 tablespoons butter, melted
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup blueberries


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F, and line a muffin tin with liners. 

Combine the buttermilk, bran cereal and bananas in a large mixing bowl. Stir together, and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Add the butter, sugar, vanilla and eggs to the banana mixture and whisk until combined. Add the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon and stir until just combined. Gently stir in the blueberries.

Distribute the batter between the muffin tins, filling each to almost totally full. Bake 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with moist crumbs. Allow to cool completely before removing from the liners. Enjoy!
