Notes

  • Optional Base Ingredients:
    • Start with a wholesome base using Kodiak pancake mix, which adds a protein boost to your muffins.
  • Oats for Texture:
    • Enhance the texture with the addition of old-fashioned oats. They not only provide a hearty texture but also contribute to the muffins' fiber content.
  • Overnight Oats Magic:
    • Prepare some overnight oats by soaking them in a liquid of your choice. This will add moisture to the muffins without the need for extra sugar.
  • Natural Sweeteners:
    • Utilize the natural sweetness of ripe bananas as a primary sweetener. Their natural sugars enhance the taste without the need for added sugar.
  • Nutty Flavor with Peanut Butter:
    • Introduce a rich and nutty flavor by incorporating a moderate amount of peanut butter into the batter. It complements the banana and blueberry combination wonderfully.
    • Muffin Tops for Crunch:
      • To add a delightful crunch to your muffins, sprinkle a layer of old-fashioned oats on top before baking. This will create a visually appealing and textured muffin top.
    • Protein Boost from Greek Yogurt:
      • Greek yogurt not only adds moisture but also boosts the protein content of your muffins. Choose plain, non-fat Greek yogurt for a healthy option.
    • Alternative Sweetener:
      • If you feel the need for additional sweetness, use a small amount of brown sugar or a sugar substitute. However, the natural sweetness from bananas may be sufficient.
    • Mini Muffins for Portion Control:
      • Consider making mini muffins instead of regular-sized ones. This allows for built-in portion control and makes them convenient for snacking.
    • Careful Measurement:
      • When using pure maple syrup, measure it precisely. A little goes a long way, providing a natural sweetness without overwhelming the muffins.
    • Balancing Flavors:
      • Ensure a balanced flavor profile by adjusting the quantities of banana, blueberries, and other ingredients. Taste the batter before baking and make adjustments as needed.
    • Airtight Container Storage:
      • Once your muffins are cooled, store them in an airtight container. This helps retain moisture and keeps the muffins fresh for a more extended period.
    • Creative Additions:
      • Experiment with additional ingredients like chia seeds, flaxseed, or chopped nuts for added nutrition and texture.
    • Flavorful Spices:
      • Enhance the flavor with a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg. These spices add warmth without the need for extra sugar.
    • Presentation Matters:
      • For an extra touch, drizzle a bit of pure maple syrup on top of the muffins before serving. This not only adds a hint of sweetness but also makes them visually appealing.
