I just loved putting this banana blueberry breakfast muffins recipe together. I hadn’t done a specific blog breakfast muffin recipe before but I thought the combination of banana and blueberries should be pretty good.

What a revelation! When I bit into the first one and the blueberries burst into my mouth – yum! 😀

It’s so easy to make a batch of these delicious banana blueberry breakfast muffins in just 45 minutes. This recipe (depending on the size of your muffin tin) should make you about 12 – 15 muffins. That’s plenty for during the week. I know that because I stored mine in an airtight tin and they were still just as good after 5 days.

These banana blueberry breakfast muffins make great little portable snacks too. Liam and I recently got fired into these before firing up the mountains. Anyway the recipe….. 😉

The combination of yogurt, blueberries and bananas here may prove challenging to beat in future breakfast muffin recipes.

However, I’m up for that challenge and I’m going to see if I can create a range of different breakfast muffin flavour combinations too.

Update 2017! Check out THESE different flavour combinations of muffins I’ve created to-date :-

Gluten Free Chocolate And Beetroot Muffins

Quick English Muffins

Mediterranean Breakfast Egg Muffins


Cranberry Banana Muffins

Tonight is the night I start evening classes in college for web design and web authorship that I mentioned previously. I’m so excited. I want to be able to take my blog to the next stage without having to employ the services of a web designer. I’m a bit of a DIYer and I’m thinking if I can do the things I want to do without spending any money, then others can too.

It’s just over a week before Lynne and I head to Glen Coe for a week’s break in a caravan. I’m looking forward to cooking some quality seafood, getting right up into the mountains for some fresh air, eating out and bringing back some quality photographs of one of the most beautiful places I know (weather permitting) to show you here.

      Thanks Jill, glad you like it!

      Yep, I deliberately left the recipe nice and simple for anyone to make any necessary dietary changes they require. 🙂

      Hope you enjoy! 😀

  2. Yum, my kids are going to love these for breakfast — I’ll make an extra batch for the freezer (busy, busy morning time saver)

      I’m so glad you like them Jennifer, and I hope your kids do too. 🙂

      I love that idea of you making a batch of them for the freezer. I never thought of that.

      Mind you, mine didn’t last long enough to be frozen 😉

  3. Blueberry muffins. Just saying the words spells comfort. These look incredible and almost biscuit-y! ANd I bet they smell so, so good. I say hello and good morning and afternoon and night to them!
    I will be very interested to see how your class goes! So interesting. On the one hand, I would love to know how to do more things with my site. On the other hand, it is kind of like dating a guy and not knowing everything about him. Mystery keeping the romance alive and all that 😉

      Ha ha, brilliant Susie I love that comparison of your site to being like dating a guy!

      Yeah, really looking forward to starting tonight. New colleagues and probably new people to test out some of my recipes on. Aren’t they lucky 😉

      Thanks for your comments about these muffins, they are a total triumph for me, and the smell when baking, OMG, sweet heaven!

  4. these do sound really good! i’m all about muffins since they’re so easy to grab and go!

      You’re so right there Linz, thanks.

      I had a batch of these kept in a container in my kitchen, it was easy to grab one to keep you going. Especially when you’re busy! 😀

  5. Do you think it would take long to ship these to DC from Scotland? Because I would really love to have one right now. They look so delicious and really homey…remind me of some that my mom made when I was younger. I can’t wait to hear about your class, too! Kudos to you for taking the DIY approach.

      Honestly Meg, if I could ship you one that would be guaranteed to arrive with you within 5 days, I would!

      In return you ship me a portion of your stir fried pork dish you’ve just done, ok, deal? 😀

      Thanks for your comments and for your interest in my class. I’m hoping that even though it’s just the first night tonight I’ll have something to say about it on Sunday.

  6. Banana muffins and blueberry muffins are my two favorite kinds- apart from chocolate of course. You have combined two of my favorite things, therefore you are a pretty special person! Thank you Neil for the great recipe. 🙂 I am all for portable and easy recipes!
    Julia @ Lord Still Loves Me recently posted…WIAW: Which Day Was Healthy?My Profile

    • says:

      Hello Julia, thank you so much for your comments on my recipe, I am flattered. 😀

      So many nice comments from so many nice people, I think I will have to make a chocolate breakfast muffin next!

      I hope you get a chance to make these and enjoy them as much as I enjoyed putting the recipe together. 🙂

  7. These look so yummy! I love the combination of bananas and blueberries. It feels very much like Spring!

      I’m really glad you like the sound of these Shannon, and thank you for stopping on board to comment.

      I so wish it would feel like Spring here in Scotland, what with the wind and rain still howling outside. But if these muffins are making people FEEL that it’s like Spring, then I am totally happy with that! 😀

  8. These sound awesome, Neil! I’m a huge fan of baking with Greek yogurt, and you’re definitely right about the blueberry + banana combo being hard to beat. Plus, you know how much I adore muffins 😉

    And that’s really awesome about your web course! I’m the same way with loving to do everything myself, but I tend to turn to Google to get my answers 😆 I’m sure a class would be much more helpful!

    • says:

      Thank you Amanda, We are definitely both huge fans of muffins! 😀

      Google is one of my best friends! It’s the place for me finding mostly everything I need too. In fact if anyone asks me any question that I can’t answer, I generally ask them “have you asked google”? Lol. But yeah, sometimes I find it hard to clarify some of the coding stuff I’m stuck on, so now I have a tutor to annoy ask 🙂

  9. These look absolutely delicious and I love finding new breakfast recipes that I can grab on the go!

      Hello Julie. Thank you for your kind words, these are just the ticket for grabbing in these times when we are always on the go, absolutely!

      It’s honestly great to make a batch of these on a Sunday, if you can, and then they can last all week. Provided we’re not tempted to eat them all in one go (which is very tempting) 🙂

  10. cant go wrong with that combo, it’s just so perfect. sweet and refreshing. You can send me some any day, okay?

      Hey Lindsay, thank you! 🙂

      We should just arrange someone like Fedex to transport consignments of your food over to me in Scotland and then I’ll fill the box with my recipes to send back over to you! 😉

  11. Hello Neil,
    Just checking this wonderful breakfast alternative to boring cereal.. I often have a lot of frozen berries would they be ok to use and a wholemeal flour?
    Going to try these at the weekend 🙂

    • says:

      Hi Laura, thanks for your message. Delighted you’re going to try these this weekend! 🙂

      As I’ve not tried these with frozen berries, only fresh berries, I might worry that the dough could get too wet, if you use frozen berries. So maybe defrost the berries completely first?

      Also, with a wholemeal flour you wont get the muffins to rise, unless you’re also adding some baking powder to the wholemeal flour?

      Love to hear how you got on with your variation!
