These muffins were originally a cranberry bread recipe from my Grandmother that I altered into blueberry banana muffins.  I love the addition of the orange juice in this, it just gives it this bright fabulous flavor!  Yes, this recipe is vegan, but trust me… no one will ever know!

Blueberry Banana Muffins

What you’ll need:

2 ½ cups sifted flour

2 tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. salt

1 ¼ cups sugar

4 ripe bananas, mashed

½ cup orange juice

1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 Tbsp. Earth Balance (or butter substitute), room temperature

1 ½ cups (or more) fresh blueberries

½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)

What you’ll do:

Sift the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt) together.  Then add the sugar, bananas, orange juice, vanilla, and butter. Whisk together.  Fold in the blueberries.

Pour into a lined muffin tin and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  Remove from pan when done and cool on rack.  These are amazing warm!
