Double Berry Banana Muffins

A person can never have too many muffin recipes, right? And after loving strawberry banana muffins, I decided to try a version that also includes blueberries. These are packed with fruity goodness and if you can't use them all in the first couple days, you can pop them into the freezer and have a great breakfast ready to go on a busy morning.

These come together quickly with just a couple bowls and a wooden spoon. Start by combining the flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add the blueberries and strawberries

and stir carefully so that the berries are coated with the flour mixture. This will help them not to sink to the bottom of the muffins.

Now in a separate bowl, or large measuring cup, combine the sugar, butter,

egg and vanilla. Now add the mashed banana to the flour mixture

then add the egg and butter mixture.

Stir carefully just until the dry ingredients are all moistened. Spoon the mixture into paper-lined muffin cups (or use nonstick spray!) and top with turbinado sugar, if you like. (I love the "bakery" finish turbinado sugar gives muffins.)

Bake for 20-22 minutes until a tester comes out clean.
