Banana Nut Bread & Muffin

Moist and delicious classic banana bread recipe. Banana bread is a type of bread that is made with mashed fully ripe bananas. Most households end up throwing overriped bananas in trash, I would rather make use of it and make bread or muffins. I make muffins for my kids and they love to take them to school.


Banana Nut Muffin
Makes 12 Muffins
1 1/2 cups of all purpose(plain) flour
3 ripe bananas
1/4 cup sour cream or yogurt(optioanl-sometimes I add if I want my bread or muffins realy moist)
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup melted butter (unsalted)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Small handful of walnuts, chopped.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Line muffin pan with muffin paper cups
Mash bananas well
Chop the walnuts and reserve 1 tbsp for sprinking on top.
Add sugar and melted butter
Mix the dry ingredients really well or sift and then add to banana mixture [ Mixing dry ingredients is important. Otherwise you will be biting into lumps of uncooked baking powder – not a pleasant taste!]
Add the chopped nuts.
Mix just enough to bring everything together
Fill muffin cups about 3/4 to the top
Sprinkle with chopped walnuts.
Bake for 20 minutes or till the muffins are golden brown.
