Blueberry And Banana Muffin

Happy New Year, and I am back to blogging !!!! Yey!!! hope you had a great holiday month and New Year....  We had a blast , visited Singapore and also our relatives in Kulhudhufushi. Now  school holidays are almost over and its back to   our usual  daily routine, well almost....

Its a New Year Year , so decided to start the year with something healthy.  Blueberries are pretty expensive over here and during our visit to Singapore I brought home a few punnets of  blueberries and strawberries, the boys wolfed down two while I hid the other two in the freezer.
They did  create a fuss when they found out , but my excuse was, you two had your share now this is mine LOL, and you still get to enjoy them just a little differently.

These blueberry and banana muffins are delicious as a tea time treat and also for breakfast and I am pretty sure this will be great for school snack as well... I made mine healthier with the addition of quick cooking oats.

Banana and Blueberry Muffins : recipe inspired  by Banana Chocolate chip muffins  recipe   from Ahead of Thyme .

Makes about 12

3 small bananas ( roughly 1 cup when mashed)
1/3 cup  corn oil( use any kind of neutral oil)
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup brown sugar ( or regular sugar)
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1 tbsp baking powder
pinch salt
1 punnet blueberries

Preheat oven to 180 degree C ,  line a regular muffin tray with cake cases...

Take two bowls. Into one bowl sift flour ,  add salt , sugar , baking powder and oats, mix with a spoon and set a side.

In the second bowl whisk the egg and oil. Then the bananas , milk vanilla essence .

Make a well in the centre of the bowl of flour mixture. Pour the contents of the second bowl into the well you made in the  flour mixture.Add the blueberries . Mix with a spoon  , do not over mix  it has to be a lumpy batter.

Spoon into the prepared paper cases , 3/4 full. Pop into the preheated oven  for 25-30 mins.  The cooking time really depends on the oven you have...
