Banana Blueberry Muffins

I can’t believe I haven’t posted this recipe before because it’s my all-time favourite muffin recipe. I make them more often than any other muffins. The whole family loves them warm out of the oven for a snack, lunch, or breakfast. I tend to have all the ingredients on hand, but if I don’t, it’s easy to substitute ingredients for something I do have. For example, if you don’t have oat bran you can use wheat germ. If you only have bananas but not applesauce, just use all bananas, or vice versa. If you don’t have blueberries, you could use another fruit. Play around with it and find what you like best.

1 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup oat bran
1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup mashed bananas
1/2 cup applesauce
1 egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Preheat oven to 375F. Line or grease a 12-cup muffin tin. In a large bowl, combine oats, flours, oat bran, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, combine bananas, applesauce, egg, and oil. Add to dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Fold in blueberries. Divide batter between 12 muffin cups. Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean.
