Everyone loves muffins- well at least I know I do! These Blueberry Banana Oatmeal muffins are the perfect way to start the day. The are packed full of juicy blueberries, oatmeal, and banana, which is a perfect combination. I love to have one as a quick breakfast, but also as a snack, dessert, coffee companion... you get the idea! These muffins are not overly sweet, but they are super flavourful! The oatmeal adds a hearty texture and helps keeps you full - but it won't stop you from sneaking a second or third muffin off the tray!

These were quite a bit of work to perfect - I wanted lots of banana flavour and lots of moisture, but I didn't want a dense, soggy muffin (yuck!). After many attempts, I am so proud of this recipe! It really is the perfect balance of flavours.

As a bonus, these muffins are made using just ONE BOWL - so not only are they tasty they are incredibly easy too! Try and use very ripe bananas for the best flavour; the ones that lay neglected all brown and spotty at the end of the week are perfect for this. Some from your collection in the freezer (that I know we all have) would work fabulously as well - but just be sure to thaw them completely before using them.

I will be making these muffins on repeat, along with my Apple Cinnamon Muffins with Maple Cinnamon Glaze and my Carrot Pineapple Muffins. Tell me in the comments - what is your favourite muffin to make?
