Banana Nut Muffins

Great recipe I found somewhere online.  I love nuts in quick breads, though Brian can't stand them. 

Banana Nut Muffins Recipe

·         3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed

·         1/3 cup melted butter

·         3/4 cup sugar

·         1 egg, beaten

·         1 teaspoon vanilla

·         1 Tbsp espresso or strong coffee (optional)

·         1 teaspoon baking soda

·         Pinch of salt

·         1 1/2 cup of flour

·         1 cup chopped walnuts (toasted or raw)


No need for a mixer with this recipe.

1 Preheat the oven to 350°F. With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl.

2 Mix in the sugar, egg, espresso and vanilla.

3 Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in.

4 Add the flour, mix until it is just incorporated. Fold in the chopped walnuts.

5 Pour mixture into a prepared muffin tin. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Check for doneness with a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin. If it comes out clean, it's done. Cool on a rack.

Yield: Makes 12 muffins.
