My blueberry banana muffins are great for weekend brunch.

And, they also pack well in the kids’ school lunches.

I have included a tip in the recipe on how to keep the blueberries from sinking to the bottom of the muffin tin.

If you are not into bananas, just leave them out. Or make half with bananas and half without.

This muffin recipe is based off “the Jordan Marsh Department Store” recipe published by King Arthur.

Then I give them that gorgeous swirl top with my homemade blueberry pie filling.

My blueberry muffins are easy to make and a great addition to the weekend brunch table.




  • 1/2 cup (113 grams) butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar (198 grams)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons (8 grams) baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups (240 grams) all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (114 grams) milk
  • 1 1/2 cups (255 grams) blueberries
  • 1 banana
  • approximately 78 teaspoons of my homemade Blueberry pie filling
  • a few tablespoons of Turnbinado sugar


  1. Beat butter and sugar together until combined
  2. Add the eggs one at a time and beat just until incorporated
  3. Mix together flour and baking powder.
  4. Mix in flour and milk, alternating each one.  Do not over mix.
  5. Add in vanilla
  6. Line the bottom of muffin tin with a small amount of the blueberryless batter. This keeps the blueberries from sinking to the bottom.
  7. Now fold the blueberries into the remaining batter.
  8. Fill muffin tins halfway full,
  9. Add three small slices of banana.
  10. Then Fill three quarters full.
  11. Swirl in a little of the blueberry filling using a skewer or chopstick.
  12. Lightly sprinkle with turbanado sugar and bake for 25 -30 minutes at 375, checking around 22 minutes.
