Banana Blueberry Muffins

I try to make muffins every weekend so that we have something healthy to eat for breakfast during the week. This weekend I had some VERY ripe bananas and some leftover blueberries (from when I made the white chocolate-blueberry cupcakes). I found this recipe in my WW recipes and we love it. We both agreed it's tied with the lemon berry muffins (recipe to come) for #1 for best muffin.

Banana blueberry Muffins - 2 WW pts - from www.prevention.com - serves 12
2 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 c brown sugar - I used Splenda brown sugar mix
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cup mashed bananas
4 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup fresh blueberries

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a 12-cup muffin tin (I used paper liners)

In a large bowl, mix flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda.

In a separate bowl, combine bananas, egg whites, and vanilla.

Mix the banana mixture into the flour mixture until smooth. Fold in blueberries.

Spoon batter into prepared muffin tins.

Bake 16 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

I am so excited to see someone else making these! I have a different blueberry banana bread that I've used for years - it's the Christmas gift that all my friends, co-workers, and family look forward to. I spend most of December baking, freezing batches as I go, so when it's time to give them, I just set them out the night before, then wrap in foil with red ribbon.
