Easy Maple Banana Muffins

With all the sap flowing out of the trees and into buckets all around me I was inspired to bake something with maple syrup. I rummaged through my recipe box and found this muffin recipe a friend gave me many years ago. The part I found most appealing is the first word in the name of the recipe: Easy Maple Banana Blueberry Muffins.

Really, it only took me about 15 minutes to get the muffins into the oven, and that includes adding one extra ingredient. blueberries. I took the liberty of throwing in 1-1/2 cups of Vermont-grown blueberries. Here is the final product. Now wasn’t that easy?

When I made the batch I filled a 12-muffin tin and had some leftover. Here’s what I did with that extra batter.
