    Merry Manana Berry Banana Mini Muffins: These are nice little muffins - blueberry + banana is a classic combination and they're moist with a fine, tender crumb. Kept well to the next day. I don't know that I'd go out of my way to make them again unless I had some more egg whites that had been contaminated by a bit of egg yolk to use up again like I did this time! Frozen blueberries worked fine - muffins just needed a couple of extra minutes in the oven. Recipe calls for 2 medium bananas - I used 2/3 c mashed. Recipe calls for 1 tbsp baking soda (for 2 c flour) which I believe is a typo - I used 1 tsp baking soda and the muffins rose fine. Recipe doesn't call for any salt - I used salted butter and added a pinch of salt to the flour mixture - next time I'd add a bit more. Pulled from oven at 198-205F in centers - worked well.
