Banana Bread Muffins

These brown butter banana bread muffins are out of control delicious. I’ve always loved banana bread and blueberries combined in baked goods, but these muffins take them to a whole new level. What is it with brown butter that makes everything so sinfully delicious?! Yikes. Beware, these are highly addictive….especially with the sweet drizzle. Enjoy!!

Best Ever Banana Bread

Banana Bread Muffins-1

Simple line up of ingredients. If you haven’t browned butter before, do not worry. It’s very easy. See my instructions in the recipe below. I used fresh blueberries today, but frozen works too. Easy on the stirring if you are using frozen, they stain your batter purple with too much mixing 🙂
