Blueberry Banana Muffins

How is your summer looking?  Ours is off to a busy start!  June is always crazy because of graduation open houses, plus this year we have quite a few baby showers coming up.  All these parties mean that I am eating an excessive amount of junk food and sweets.  Yesterday, one of my good friends had an open house to celebrate her graduation.  She served all desserts--it was absolutely delicious and I was on sugar overload.  I could tell because my little one kept moving around so my belly was dancing all evening!

After all the sweets I'm indulging in, it's nice to have a healthier option around the house to eat.  I took my mom's recipe for banana bread, swapped out a few ingredients and added a few more to make it healthier, and then made them into muffins.  You may notice that the muffins are a little flat.  I think that's because I took a bread recipe and made it into muffins, the bread is a quick bread so it really doesn't rise in the pan, and that was evident in these muffins.  It didn't bother me though; these muffins are moist and dense, and a little healthier than their banana bread counterpart.

As I was getting my posts ready for this week, I noticed that all of my recipes include blueberries.  So, I'm following last week's Smoothie Week with Blueberry Week.  I hope you enjoy these recipes--blueberries will be in season here soon and I can't wait!
