You might not know this about me, but I am HUGE corn muffin fan. As in I ate one every single day as a child. Even as a kid, I would choose a buttery corn muffin over a chocolate chip muffin. Weird–I know. But I think we can all agree there is something distinctly nostalgic and delicious about a corn muffin.

A corn muffin is also super versatile. You can serve it up with butter in place of a dinner roll, eat it for breakfast, pack it as a snack for a hike, or dust it with powdered sugar for dessert. What’s not to like?

What are blueberry banana cornbread muffins?

Okay so I know these aren’t exactly a classic muffin flavor, but they really should be. Blueberry banana is one of the most underrated combos in my opinion. And blueberry cornbread is also an excellent flavor combo. So why not smoosh those two together into the best buttery, gluten free muffin you’ll ever eat.

The base of these easy muffins is a banana corn muffin kept moist with greek yogurt and coconut oil and held together with a combination of corn flour and gluten free flour. The result is a super tender muffin with just the right amount of corny flavor. Load that muffin up with fresh blueberries and you’ve got yourself a damn good muffin.

Ingredients

  • 3 ripe bananas (about 1 1/4 cups)

  • 2/3 cup sugar (coconut, brown sugar, or white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 3/4 cup gluten free flour (We used Bob’s 1 to 1 Baking Flour!)
  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F and line a muffin tin with 12 cupcake liners. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl use a fork to mash the ripe bananas up. Add the eggs and coconut oil and mix well. Add the greek yogurt, sugar and vanilla extract and whisk to combine.
  3. In a separate bowl mix together the baking soda, corn flour, gluten free flour, and salt. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet and fold until combined.
  4. Last, fold in the blueberries.
  5. Use a large cookies scoop or a 1/4 cup measure to divide the batter evenly between the 12 cups. Bake at 425°F for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes reduce the heat to 375°F and bake for 10 to 12 more minutes or until the cupcakes spring back to the touch.
  6. Allow to cool before eating!

  1. These look yummy but I don’t have any corn flour. Can I used cornmeal instead? Also, I am not a
    a coconut oil fan…way too high in bad cholesterol… so I am guessing I can replace it with canola/veg oil?

    • Hi Nancy! Yes you can absolutely use cornmeal! And feel free to swap the coconut oil out for oil or melted butter!
