Enjoy Low-Fat Banana and Blueberry Muffins


2 cups self-raising flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3 ripe bananas, mashed

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

2 large eggs, room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)




  • Preheat Oven

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners, or grease the cups lightly with butter or cooking spray.

  • Prepare Dry Ingredients

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg (if using). Set aside.

  • Prepare Wet Ingredients

In a separate large bowl, mash the ripe bananas using a fork or potato masher. Add the granulated sugar, brown sugar, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix well until everything is combined.

  • Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients

Add the dry components gradually into the wet mix, blending until they're barely combined. Be careful not to over-mix, a few lumps are okay.

  • Add Blueberries

Gently fold the blueberries into the batter. If using frozen blueberries, toss them in a bit of flour before adding to prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the muffins.

  • Fill Muffin Cups

Fill each cup with the prepared muffin tin by spooning the batter, aiming for about 75% full.

  • Bake Muffins

Place the muffin tin in the preheated oven and bake for 18–22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. The tops should be golden brown.

Once baked, remove the muffins from the oven and let them cool in the tin for 5–10 minutes. Then transfer the muffins to a wire rack to cool completely before serving.
