My wife Lisa came up with this recipe.

IMO, just the best darned muffins you will ever eat.

2 cups white flour
½ cup wheat flour
½ cup white sugar
½ cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
6 Tbsp cold unsalted butter, cut up
1 cup roughly chopped walnuts
2 med bananas
2/3 cup milk
2 eggs
½ tsp almond extract
1 pint fresh blueberries

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a LARGE 6 muffin size tin. In a large bowl
combine flour, sugars, baking powders and salt. Cut in butter until mixture
resembles course crumbs. Stir in walnuts. In a separate bowl, mash bananas
and mix in milk, eggs and almond extract. Fold in blueberries. Fill muffin tins
all the way to the top. Bake for 30 minutes. Immediately remove muffins from
tin and cool on wire rack. Makes 6 large muffins.

*Note: You may use the smaller size muffin tins but it's my opinion they bake up better in the large size. I like the consistency better. YMMV.

Thanks! I was just wondering what I would make with those two dark bananas in the fruit basket. I better get to it!

So I got ready to make this recipe last night and started getting out the ingredients. I opened the freezer and . . . oh, NO! I must be out of last year's blueberries.

Oh, wait! What is that in the back? Hmmm, cranberries. Well, close enough, right?

So, I made the recipe with cranberries and pecans and it was FANTASTIC!!!! I just had some for breakfast.

I never thought of putting berries with bananas in the bread. I usually put apples or pears. I can't even remember the last time I made plain 'ol banana bread. So I am adding this recipe to my list of regulars for muffins and quick breads.

(When I went to get the chicken out of the freezer for dinner, I found one more bag of blueberries.

So I'll be picking up more bananas at the store today!)

Thank you for giving the recipe a shot, and the addition to your list.

Yes, they are good with cranberries, aren't they? Just not as good as blueberries though, IMHO. The pecans are also a great substitute that we've also tried, as are almonds.
