Banana Nut Muffins

I noticed that there was a stack of ripe bananas on the counter and since nobody else was eating them in the house other than I, I decided to use them for something. Banana bread popped into my head as something to make, but it felt boring. Instead I found a bag of pecans and decided to make banana nut muffins.

Here are the ingredients needed for this recipe:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 large overripe bananas, mashed
  • 3/4 cup sugar (1/2 brown and 1/2 white)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

Step 2: Line the muffin pans or lightly grease the pans

Step 3: In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt

Step 4: In a large bowl, combine the bananas, sugar, egg, and melted butter

Step 5: Fold the flour mixture into the banana mixture, mix until smooth

Step 6: Fold in the chopped pecans (can add optional ingredients at this time)

Step 6: Scoop into the pans

Step 7: Bake: (minis: 10-15 minutes) (large: 25-30 minutes) muffins will spring back when lightly tapped

Optional Ingredients:

  • dash of vanilla extract
  • pinch of ground cinnamon
  • pinch of ground ginger
  • pinch of ground nutmeg
  • pinch of allspice
