Instructions

To make streusel:

  • Combine the sugar and flour in a small bowl, mix thoroughly with a whisk.
  • Cut the cold butter into small cube and add it to the flour/sugar mixture.
  • Use a pastry blender or a fork to cut butter into the dry mixture until coarse crumbs form. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

To make muffins:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Line 11 cavities of a regular size muffin pan with paper liner.
  • In a medium bowl, add whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and mix thoroughly with a whisk.
  • Peel the bananas and mash them with a potato masher in another medium bowl.
  • Add the light brown sugar, egg, yogurt, coconut oil and vanilla extract to the mashed banana and mix with a whisk until smooth.
  • Pour the whole wheat flour mixture in with the liquid mixture and mix until just combined.
  • Fold in 1 cup of blueberry.
  • Divide batter equally into the previously prepared muffin pan.
  • Top the batter with the rest of the blueberry, and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of streusel.
  • Bake for 20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack for 5-10 minutes.
  • Flip muffins over to get them out of the muffin pan and onto a dish towel. Let them cool on their sides on the towel.

Notes

  • Best served warm on the day they are baked.
  • They can be kept at room temperature wrapped individually or in an airtight container for 1-2 days.
  • Reheat in the microwave for 10-15 seconds when served the next day.
