banana blueberry muffins just for Jack :)

every so often i i let my oldest son decide what i should bake... and yesterday was one of those days... usually he gets very creative... pairing things that make you raise your eyebrows and go "whaaa??", and sometimes i shake my head thinking, "hmmm... that's not bad"...

so when i sat down and asked him yesterday, he twisted his mouth in thought, and casually said "how 'bout some blueberry muffins??"...

huh? that's it??? no sprinkles? no chocolate chips? no gobs and gobs of frosting?? wow... how simple... but... i was more than happy to satisfy his request... i just changed it a bit... i went with a banana muffin with blueberries, and nixed the sugar topping... there was no need for the sugar topping anyways, the bananas were so ripe and sweet...
so here is the recipe... i'm happy jack wanted these... they made my moring cup(s) of coffee so much more enjoyable :)
