I love that all the sweetness in these banana blueberry muffins comes from well, the fruit! Make sure that the bananas are nice and ripe so they are extra sweet, but also easy to mash and combine with the other ingredients. Fresh blueberries will hold their shape better, but frozen are fine too. I used a combination of both this time!
