END Post...Just kidding!
There is this great Brown Sugar Banana Nut Bread recipe posted on http://www.danicasdaily.com/ that I absolutely love! And I love it even more in muffin form. A few days ago I decided to add some blueberries to give it some more umph and see if I could rock some extra fruit in the muffin. Verdict: I love them even more! Here is the recipe Danica has posted. I added 5 or 6 blueberries to half the batch...I could see adding even more!
