Recipe: Bananu Nut MuffinsAdapted from Foodnetwork.com
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 overripe bananas
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter (melted)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and arrange the baking cups in a muffin pan.
Mash 2 of the bananas with a fork in a small bowl so they still have a bit of texture. In a large bowl, combine the flour, butter, eggs, baking soda, the remaining 2 bananas, sugar, and vanilla extract. Beat the ingredients with an electric mixer for 3 minutes or until all ingredients are mixed together. Fold in the chopped walnuts and the mashed bananas with a rubber spatula. Spoon the batter into each of the baking cup and fill about halfway.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the muffins turn brown. Makes 18 regular muffins.
