Banana Nut Muffins

I thought I would start the week with a recipe for my banana nut muffins which are so nice to make in large quantities and freeze. I love having these on hand for a quick breakfast on the go or warm them up as part of a weekend family brunch.

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 large bananas
1 egg
1 1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup walnuts, chopped

1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar together.
2. Add bananas and egg to butter mixture.
3. In a separate bowl, mix all dry ingredients together.
4. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix until ingredients are incorporated.
5. Add 3/4 of the walnuts to the mixture and mix.
6. Fill muffin tins 1/2 full. I recommend buttering and flouring your tins instead of using muffin pan liners to create a prettier and nicer tasting muffin.
7. Sprinkle a few walnut pieces on top of each muffin.
8. Bake in a 350ºF oven for approximately 15 - 20 minutes.
