The extra moisture and sugar the bananas added to the mix are the culprit. You'd be much better off looking for a banana muffin recipe and adding some blueberries.

More likely it won't stick. You can't blame a recipe if you change it.

I'm not familiar with the website you linked. I can't say of Gwyneth Paltrow's mom makes great muffins.

When I'm looking for a reliable recipe, I look on trustworthy websites and collect 4-6 recipes and compare them.

Search here for recipes. Also, for baking, you could also look at Martha Stewart's site or BH&G or Good Housekeeping.

If you're looking for a delicious, foolproof recipe for blueberry muffins, I have one. I've made these many times.
(My notes: I add 1 tsp lemon zest to the batter, use 2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen/unthawed, and omit the extra 1/2 cup crushed blueberries. I also omit the sprinkling sugar on top. I use buttered muffin liners, and butter the top of the muffin pan. Make sure the butter and eggs are at room temperature!):
