Blueberry Banana Muffins

Guest post by Mal:
I made these muffins this weekend, and they turned out pretty well.  They are not very sweet, but enough for a healthy snack.  I mean they dont taste like health food, but they're nowhere near Costco or boxed muffin sweetness.

olive oil spray for pan
3/4 cup mashed very ripe bananas (about 2)
3/4 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup olive oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
2.5 cups soft white wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 generous cup fresh or frozen blueberries
Preheat oven to 425.  Spray 12 cup muffin tin with olive oil.  In a large bowl, mix bananas, yogurt, honey, olive oil, and vanilla.  In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture and stir until just combined.  Fold in the blueberries.  Spoon the batter into the muffin tin and place the tin in the oven.  Reduce the heat to 400 and bake for 30 minutes, or until the tops spring back when lightly touched.  Let cool int he tin for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.  Serve warm.  Or let cool completely and store 3 days airtight, or 2 months frozen.
