Banana Walnut Muffin

I have two over ripen bananas sitting on my counter. I know nobody is going to touch it. So, I decided to put them to good use by making Banana Walnut Muffins. With the recipe below, you may use pecans or hazelnuts instead if you like.



  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • generous 1/4 cup golden superfine sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped coarsely
  • 2 large ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

IMG_4080_edited-1I mashed the bananas in another bowl. In it, I added the milk, melted butter, beaten egg and vanilla extract and mixed them (wet ingredients) together.
IMG_4081_edited-1I then added the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently stirred until just combined. Do not over-mix the mixture or the muffins will be tough.
IMG_4082_edited-1The batter is divided among 9 muffin tins and baked in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.

This is a very fragrant muffin with good texture. It is best served warm and with butter.

    I usually end up making banana bread when I have over ripe bananas or making a smoothie with them.

    Hi Fawn: Amazing isn’t it? I think the moist comes a lot from the banana.

    Hi Blueyes: Any excellent secrets to making the perfect smoothies?

    Hi Floyd: Thanks for the feedback.
