In the Kitchen - Banana Nut Muffins

I love anything with nuts in them, really, I do!  A handful of almonds is becoming one of my favorite go-to snack as I work towards maintaining a healthier lifestyle.

But as of right now I'm still loving some good ol' sweets, breads, muffins and pies!!! I just might be a baker at heart!
But I digress, I actually want to talk about nuts...

No, that's not right :)

...ah, yes, MUFFINS!

Banana NUT muffins to be exact!  They're deliciousand may I add they are perfect for breakfast!  As a mom with a baby on the move I need the kind of breakfast that doesn't require a lot of preparation in the morning.  You know, cereal, fruits, uh...cereal!  Obviously, I needed a change so I baked the beauties you see below one morning and ate them for breakfast throughout the week. Umm, umm...GOOD!



Ingredients 
3-4 - Ripe Bananas (smashed)
1/2 cup - Unsalted Butter (melted)
3/4 cup - Sugar
1 Egg (beaten)
1 Tsp Vanilla
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1 1/2 cup - Flour
1 cup - Chopped Walnuts
Salt (pinch)




    Prep / Cook Time:  15 min / 25 - 30 min (Makes 15)
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Bowl 1:
    Mix melted butter into mashed bananas.
    Mix in sugar, egg and vanilla.
    Bowl 2:
    Add flour, mix in baking soda and salt.

    Add the ingredients from Bowl 2 into Bowl 1.
    Mix until just combined.
    Fold in the chopped walnuts.
    Pour mixture into a prepared muffin tin.
    Cool on a rack after baking (this is SO important).
    
These bad boys were quick and easy, moist and delicious!  You should definitely give 'em a try!!!

Next week:  Homemade Brownies w/ Chocolate Chips
Mario ate three and asked if I was going to eat the rest of mine...so yeah, they are just that good!
Stay tuned!!!

  6. I love banana nut ANYTHING! Now I want to go home and make them.
    When we have bananas in the house that are about to go bad I take them, peel them, and freezer. I have a bag of bananas in the freezer so I can make banana bread, muffins, or banana soft serve whenever I want.
