Banana Blueberry Cupcakes

Banana Blueberry Cupcake Recipe

I made this incredible Banana Blueberry Bundt Cake last summer, so I knew I just had to try making a cupcake version! I don’t know what it is about baked blueberries but they just make everything better.  Plus, you can’t really ever go wrong with a cupcake topped with cream cheese frosting 🙂  So… we have bananas and blueberries, this is heathy, right?

Banana Blueberry Cupcakes

I like using the plain white liners when I bake with blueberries because it’s so fun to see the purple bleed into it… Mmm, it makes it hard to keep my hands to myself when I take the photos.  I just want to eat them!! I popped a few blueberries a I shot, but who can blame me for that? 🙂
