These Banana Blueberry Muffins combine two favorites in one delicious muffin that’s perfect for breakfast, brunch, or anytime!
So. Today is not just any ordinary Thursday. No, it’s a special day for us around here…..a day that we’ve been thinking about for weeks and counting down since the weekend. (Drumroll, please.) Today is the day we go to the Kalahari!!! Are you jumping up and down for joy? Are you cheering with excitement at your computer? No??? I don’t blame you. Because even though we’ve been to waterparks a thousand times, and even though we keep going back, I wouldn’t exactly say I *love* them.
4 days spent with 4 kids in 1 hotel room? Countless hours spent in my swimsuit with hundreds of strangers? Trekking back and forth between the pool and the room, dripping wet and shivering cold? Not exactly the most fun things I could imagine. Ahh, the things we do for our kids. All I can say is it’s a good thing I like them.
Of course, waterpark adventures aren’t ALL bad. In fact, the truth is I’m actually looking forward to our little getaway! Because even though it involves swimsuits and wetness, it also involves family time, fun, and maybe even a little relaxation. We’ll play some games, we’ll watch some movies, we’ll lounge in our jammies, and, of course, we’ll eat our way through the next 4 days. Starting with these delicious Banana Blueberry Muffins.
Yes, I made these muffins specifically for our getaway….plus a few extras for right away. And I have to say – the minute we bit into them, we were in love. These Banana Blueberry Muffins are packed with banana flavor, bursting with blueberries, and topped with a delicious streusel. And that doesn’t even cover the glaze. From start to finish, Banana Blueberry Muffins are sure to become a new family favorite. At home OR at the waterpark!
