For a Sunday, it is an exceptionally busy day. Apart from the usual activities – Church and going out to eat afterwards – we had Christmas parties (complete with Santa, and not to be missed) and a book party for the fabulous Local Flavor cook book localflavornwa.com/‎ which I, along with other people featured in the book, am cooking for.
These Banana Blueberry Muffins helped start the day off, and made me feel that I was focussing time and love on my family before the hectic progression of the day.

Heat oven to 375F.
Toss 1 1/2 cups frozen blueberries with 2 tablespoons flour. Stir together 2 1/4 cups flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Whisk together 1 cup mashed banana, 2 eggs, 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup melted butter and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, add to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened. Fold in blueberries. Spoon into a lightly greased 12 cup muffin pan. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
