Super Moist and Delicious
These are the most delicious banana nut muffins I have ever had, and I’m not just tooting my own horn. They are super moist and have just the right amount of sweetness. Best of all they are easy to make and only require one large and one small bowl and one spatula, as well as your muffin tins of course. This recipe makes 12 muffins but can easily be doubled . I use all organic ingredients to make these muffins a little more healthy for my family.
3 over ripe bananas (brown and almost mushy). Some grocery stores even sell them this way cheaper, so be sure to ask if you don’t see them on the shelf.
1 egg- raw brown
5 Tbsp melted organic butter
1 ½ cups flour- I use a mix of half organic unbleached white flour and organic whole wheat flour- but you can use either all white or all whole wheat flour as well
1 tsp baking powder
Pinch of fine sea salt
1 cup organic raw sugar
½ cup chopped roasted walnuts/ or pecans
1 tsp pure vanilla extract (make your own)
In large bowl mash bananas’s. Add melted butter (I rarely use the microwave but I do melt my butter in a small bowl, in the microwave for 30 seconds) and mix well. Beat egg (I use the bowl the butter was in) and add to mixture, mix well. Add vanilla and mix. Add sugar and mix well. Sprinkle baking powder over mixture and mix well. Add the flour ½ cup at a time, mixing well after every addition. Fold in nuts.
Either grease muffin pans or use muffin liners. Fill 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-22 mins. Check for doneness at 18 mins. Place entire muffin tray on cooling rack and let cool for 5 mins. Remove from muffin tin carefully and finish cooling directly on cooling rack.
These muffins can be frozen in zip lock bags for up to two months. They make the perfect breakfast on the go, or pair with greek yogurt for a healthy breakfast at home. If you freeze your muffins just take one or two out the night before and let defrost on the counter. By the am they are perfect.
I hope you enjoy these muffins as much as my family does… they are super yummy for breakfast and keep my little ones full all morning. We usually pair ours with greek yogurt and some of my Yummy Healthy Granola.
