Banana Nut Muffins

Banana Nut Muffins

My nephew Hunter has been here for the weekend visiting us and I wanted to send him back to the dorms with some food so first up are these muffins so he has a breakfast snack.  The recipe comes from the “Food Network” website.  I haven’t tried one as I’m sending them all home with Hunter but he had one last night and said they were good.

2 cups flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

4 overripe bananas (I only had 3 but it seemed to be fine)

1 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted and cooled

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup pecans, chopped (I used walnuts instead)

1  Preheat oven to 375 and lightly butter muffin tin or line with paper liners.

2  Combine flour, baking soda and salt in large bowl.  Mash 2 of bananas with fork in small bowl so they still have some texture.  With wire whisk, whip remaining bananas and sugar together for 3 minutes.  Add melted butter, eggs and vanilla and beat well, scraping down sides of bowl as needed.  Mix in dry ingredients just until incorporated.  Fold in nuts and mashed bananas.  Spoon or scoop batter into muffin tins to fill about halfway.  Give them a rap on the counter to get any air bubbles out.

3  Bake until toothpick inserted comes out clean, about 18 – 20 minutes.  Let cool for a few minutes before removing from pan.

I got about 1 1/2 dozen muffins from this recipe.
