Banana, Walnut, Blueberry Muffin

Talk about sharing a muffin . . . This one fed all 6 of us traveling in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Made by the Byzantine Friars from the Society of St John in Eagle River, Michigan, this muffin was filled with banana, blueberries and walnuts. Although a little dry, it was worth it.

The Friars sell their home made jams, jellies, muffins and honey at the Jampot down the road from their Monastery. This store is their monetary support and tourists from all over come to their tiny shop. The line to buy their goods on a sunny Saturday afternoon was to the door.

The blueberry muffins from La Posada, pg 62 Tastes & Treasures, are moist and flavorful. Adding banana and walnuts would make them comparable to the Friar's fare.
