Wild Blueberry & Banana Muffins

we are on a constant muffin rotation in this house, replacing the beloved quick bread rotation, since my pan has mysteriously gone missing.  even after reorganizing the entire kitchen i still can't find it. 
i blame mr. handsome.
who would've thought a GPS device would be needed for a pan?
with bread out of the question, it's muffins in.  
not a loss at all, especially when they contain two of my favourite foods.

bananas and blueberries.
 not the prettiest, good thing this isn't a beauty competition....
 i'll take taste over looks any day.

Wild Blueberry & Banana Muffins

1 1/2 cups flour (all-purpose, whole wheat, spelt, or a blend)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar, plus more for sprinkling
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla
3 large bananas, ripe & mashed
1 cup wild blueberries, frozen

Preheat oven to 350F.  Spray 12 cup muffin tin with non stick spray and set aside.
In large bowl combine butter and sugar using an electric mixer until creamy.  Add in egg and vanilla and mix until well blended.  Add mashed bananas and mix again.
Add salt and baking soda, and mix together with a wooden spoon.  Add flour and mix until just incorporated.  Do not over mix.
Fold in blueberries (reserving a few for garnish).
Divide batter among prepared muffin tin, sprinkle with sugar and garnish with remaining berries.  Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Yields: 12
