These are the best tasting and easiest Banana Nut Muffins you will ever eat. I always make these when we have bananas that have have become overly ripe. The riper (mushier and darker) the bananas are, the sweeter and better tasting the banana nut muffins will be. No mixer is required, and you should have all these ingredients on hand. Unlike banana bread, these muffins cook in half the time, so you should have one from oven to plate just under 20 minutes! Enjoy!
Combine the flour, baking powder, soda, and salt together in a large bowl.
Mix together the egg, brown sugar, melted butter, and vanilla.
Add the mashed bananas and chopped nuts.
Fold wet ingredients into dry mixture.
Pour batter into greased muffins pan, or directly into a silicone muffin pan.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 18-20 minutes, or until lightly browned. Toothpick inserted in center of muffin should come out clean.
Cool in pan for a few minutes, then transfer muffins to wire rack to let cool completely. Serve muffins fresh and warm from the oven…they are best the day you make them!
I love drizzling a bit of honey on the top of mine.
