Blueberry Banana Muffins

I absolutely love it when I have a few bananas that get a little too ripe to eat alone.  I have never been a huge banana fan in general, so I have to make them exciting to trick myself into eating them.  To tell you the truth, they are kind of growing on me!  I had some blueberries left from my amazing friend Katie that brought them from a blueberry patch they visiting in Tulsa.  If there is one muffin that I love…it has to be blueberry!   I decided to give a banana blueberry muffin a shot and boy am I glad I did!  They were DELICIOUS!!!  Alex couldn’t stay out of them, so that told me they had to be good!

I love this recipe because I happened to have everything on hand!  I did use Hyvee Greek yogurt with blueberries on bottom because I did not have any plain greek yogurt, but I think it added some character!
