Banana Walnut Muffins

One of my best buddies coming to visit + pile of really ripe bananas = excuse to bake muffins!

Not just any muffins.  The best banana walnut muffins you've ever had.  And, you'vs gotta have something to serve your guests that'll make 'em want to come back, right?

I found this recipe on allrecipes.com a while ago and have been in love ever since.  This time, however, I added walnuts, since I've been given an abundance of them by a colleague.  I love Bulgaria.

You'll need:
1 1/2 cups (190 g) flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2-3 ripe bananas, mashed
3/4 cup (150 g) sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup (75 g) butter, melted
1/4 cup (28 g) walnuts, chopped

PREP:  Pre-heat oven to 350 F (175 C).  Grease muffin tin(s).  Mash the bananas lightly inside the peel.

MIX:  Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl, and set aside.  Mix bananas, sugar, egg, and butter in a large bowl.  Fold in flour mixture just until smooth.  Then, fold in walnuts.

SCOOP:  Scoop 1/8 cup of batter into each muffin tin.

BAKE:  Bake for 10-15 minutes.  Stick a toothpick in the center, spin, and if it comes out clean, they are done!

YIELD: 18-20 muffins

Sorry not so many pictures this time.  I'm eager to spend some time outside.  The sun is shining today!

Oh, and I'm a huge muffin fan.  If any of you have muffin recipes to pass on, please do!

Happy Thursday!
