I love the combination of banana and blueberry in this muffin! The bananas make this muffin ultra moist and delicious. This is a nutritious muffin to boot – it’s low in fat and there’s whole-wheat flour and oat bran in the mix.

Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2

Prepare a medium muffin tin by lining with muffin paper or brushing/spraying with oil.

Step 3

Sift flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Add oat bran, nutmeg and all spice. Stir well to combine. Set aside.

Step 4

Mash banana in a bowl. Add apple butter, vanilla, brown sugar, buttermilk and vegetable oil. Stir to combine.

Step 5

Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon until just combined. Some of the flour may still remain visible. Do not over mix or the muffins will be tough. Fold in the blueberries.
