  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled (1 1/2 sticks)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 overripe bananas
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and arrange the baking cups in a muffin pan.
  2. 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, salt, 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.

  3. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the muffins turn brown. Makes 18 regular muffins.
