Banana Nut Mini Muffins

I bake a batch of these and keep them in a ziplock for a quick breakfast, or a quick snack (or a quick lunch/dinner on busy days!)

Banana Nut Mini Muffins

(Andy Knowlton)

1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 1/3 cups mashed bananas (overripe is best)
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp allspice
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray mini muffin pan with Pam.

In a large bowl, cream butter with sugars. Add eggs & mashed banana. Stir until well blended. Add flour, soda, salt, allspice, vanilla & cinnamon. Stir just enough to moisten. Fold in chopped walnuts.

Scoop into mini muffin pan. Bake for 16-18 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes and then flip out onto a cooling rack.

Makes 48 mini muffins

note: You could also toss in some chocolate chips if you want. Also, this can be baked in a loaf pan for 55-60 minutes.
