I am not much of a baker, but I love baking banana nut muffins that perfumed my house with the sweet aroma of bananas and the unmistakably something-is-baking buttery fragrance. Banana nut muffins are probably one of the most popular muffins–not to mention utterly delicious.

My banana nut muffins recipe is adapted from Food Network. It’s really simple and non-baker friendly. Try this easy banana muffins recipe because it’s great waking up in the morning and smell the banana nut muffins…

If you have any questions about how to make banana nut muffins or the banana nut muffins recipe, please drop me a comment.

If you like bananas, you will have to check out my banana bread/banana cake recipe.

    Beautiful Pictures. I love the presentation in the basket. Yes, baking is a great way to rid of the strong smells of Asian Food. I usually burn all kinds of candles and aromatic oils. But its tough, especially in a small place. Great blog!

    Tried this recipe and it turned out great! Thanks to your recipe and photos!!!

    Btw, would you happen to know a simple & easy and of course yummy recipe for making pound cake.

    Thank you!

  51. maria says:

    Hi i don’t use cups to bake but grams. are you able to help me out with the conversion from cups to grams. I would love to try your recipie but would require some help in this measurement part. =)

  52. Khatiya says:

    As soon as I saw your recipe, I immediately jot it down and went into the kitchen to try it out. I tried to cut your recipe in half. I had some problems with my oven ( roaster/toaster) because when I set it to bake, both top and bottom light came on so probably that was why it sort of burn a bit (on the top). I’m new to baking so I’ll probably need some time to get to know my little roaster/toaster oven. Nevertheless, it turned out great and taste good too. I couldn’t wait til it cool =) Oh, and I used peanuts because I did not have walnuts at the time. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

  53. Nagma says:
