Friends that know me well, may wonder if I actually tried this recipe, because it’s not a secret that while I do enjoy fresh bananas, they are one of my least
favorite ingredients in desserts and baked goods. I’ll pass on banana cream pie, banana pudding, banana nut bread … you name it.
However when my kids were younger I was at a playgroup where the hostess made these Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins, and surprisingly I thought they were quite delicious and not too banana-y. Or banana-ish. They were delish!
I suggest you combine ingredients in a mixer. You could try by hand if it’s been a while since you’ve worked out. Even though my butter was softened, when I mixed it by hand it was hard to get the butter to blend well, then I didn’t know if it was butter or bananas I was mashing against the side of the bowl (you may laugh at me now).

While our local crops are lighter this year due to the harsh winter, we will still make our summer trek to a nearby U-pick to pick some fresh blueberries.
Enjoy finding something new in these 20 Blueberry Recipes to make with your summer’s fresh blueberries!
Blueberry Pie is something I remember my grandmother and mother making, and it is most definitely a family favorite (my sister’s very favorite pie, in fact). It is so super simple it’s surprising to hear friends have never tried making one!
I first shared this Blueberry Pie recipe last summer in my Must-Haves for a Summer Picnic post. It is so divine, it deserves its very own dedicated post.
You can certainly make your own crust from scratch – my grandmother always did, but to save a few steps I let Pillsbury make the crust.
Enjoy! And please – do come back and comment if you make it and let me know what you think!
