These are really delicious muffins! I made the actual muffins (not the gift jar) and just loved the combination of banana and blueberry. These muffins baked up big, moist and fluffy. Really enjoyed these - thanks for posting the recipe!

These are incredible! I've made 6 dozen in the past 3 days. They're moist, and are the perfect blending of flavours - the banana and blueberries go so well together. Maybe I'll actually give them as a gift in a jar next time...
