Banana Nut Muffins – Mom’s famous for them!  Plus, they’re wearing very cute pyjamas!

These muffins are the kind that make your lunch box sing when you’re 8 (or even 16).  They smell like a warm snuggly weekend morning.  I generally make them whenever we have house guests or when I’m missing family.  It’s a nice welcome to wake up to, and not to mention, a protein potassium punch!  Want to be extra loving to your family this weekend?  Make these banana nut muffins, watch cartoons, or sit on the deck and savor.

Ingredients:

•  1 cup of sugar
•  ½ cup of soft butter (not melted)
• 2 large eggs
•  3 large (or 4 small) super ripened banana (like almost all black)
•  2 cups of flour
•  1 ½ – 2 teaspoons of baking soda
•  pinch of salt
•  ½ cup chopped walnuts

These are easy to make either by hand or in your mixer.  I like using my mixer, but the odd time I’ll breakout the baking bowl and give myself a little arm workout (especially if I can’t make it to the gym that day…every little bit helps, right?)

Combine the first 3 ingredients and mix well, then mash (or lightly sir) in the bananas.  In a separate bowl, stir together the flower, soda, and salt.  Fold the dry ingredients into the banana mixture, and then add nuts.

I bake mine in my stoneware muffin pan, so I use liners.

Aren’t they cute?  Like bananas in plaid pyjamas!

If you’re using a muffin tin, be sure to either use liners or butter it so they muffins don’t stick.

Fill them high – like right to the top.  Who wants a small muffin?  No one I’ve met.

Bake for 24-27 minutes at 350 degrees.
