  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick butter or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 medium bananas mashed
  • 1 cup blueberries divided
  • 3/4 cup shredded coconut


  • Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Cream butter, eggs, sugar and vanilla with mixer. Combine with flour mixture and continue mixing while adding buttermilk and mashed bananas. Fold in 1/2 cup of the blueberries with a spoon.
  • Spray a 12 cup muffin pan with cooking spray, fill cups with batter. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup blueberries and the shredded coconut over each muffin. Muffin cups will be full. Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 25 minutes watching to make sure coconut is brown and does not burn. Some ovens get hotter than others. My muffins are usually done and the coconut is perfectly toasted in 20 to 25 minutes. Makes 12 large muffins.
