    Banana Blueberry Mini Muffins

    What do you guys do when you are really tired? Sleep? Take a shower? I like to do that too but sometimes all I  want to do is bake – even when I am dead tired. Baking really relaxes me and I forget my tiredness when I smell the wonderful aroma of baked goods. One of my most favorite things to bake are muffins. Homemade, super moist and delicious muffins and these Banana Blueberry Streusel Mini Muffins are all that and more! The other day I was really tired, we were out all day and came back only at night. As soon as I came back, I saw 2 very ripe bananas lying on my kitchen counter and I immediately knew I wanted to bake some muffins. I was really tired but I knew this would relax me. Baking is magical, it sure does wonders to my mood!

    However I didn’t want to make plain and simple banana muffins, I mean they are great but you can definitely make them more wonderful. Isn’t it? Enter blueberries and streusel topping! And of course since I can never have enough of mini food, I had to make them using my mini muffins pans. These turned out so cute, don’t you just want to gobble them up? Plus mini means you can eat more of these without any guilt! 😉

    For this recipe, I used my favorite mini muffin recipe. I just made few changes to it and added the streusel topping. Trust me on this guys, these are like one of the best muffins ever, so moist! Oil, greek yogurt and not over-mixing the batter makes these mini muffins extra moist. Like I mention in all my muffin recipes, do not over-mix the batter, that will result in hard muffins and you don’t want that! I also like my muffins to rise high and so I always bake them at a higher temperature initially which results in those high muffin domes.

    1. It’s been a while since I’ve baked muffins and this recipe has tempted me to bake ! Shall substitute blue berries ( I do not get them so easily) with some dry fruits .

    2. Well to be very honest I forget about cooking, baking and like to sleep because I just love doing that. And when I am done with proper sleep then I start with my plan of the day.
      Great recipe Manali, feel like having some. 🙂

    3. Holy wow, Manali. When I’m tired, all I wanna do is lie down and Netflix binge. The baking has to be when I have energy.
      These are so adorable!

    4. These look like the perfect quick breakfast or treat to snack on throughout the day, Manali! The combo of bananas and blueberries is like having the best of both worlds—the ultimate muffin! Can’t get much better than that! I love the smell of something baking in the oven too…it’s automatically makes me happy!

    5. I can’t do much of anything when I’m exhausted. But when I’m feeling stressed out or have a lot on my mind, I turn to baking. Baking these banana blueberry streusel muffins would be so therapeutic. Not to mention they sound delicious!!
