Banana Nut Muffins

24 Sep

Good morning lovelies!

We are day numero dos into Fall and it smells and feels so sweet! 

Early this morning I walked my cute boston terrier, Mika, around my neighborhood. I swear, I can feel the change of seasons. The cool breeze and sight chill in the air put pep in my step. It also inspired me to fall into the season.

And fall I did. The autumn weather, the melody of the leaves swaying in the light breeze, and the cool air charmed me to bake. 

This morning I made scrump-tee-lee-ush-es Banana Bread Muffins!

  
Check out the recipe! 

Banana Bread Muffins

Active Time: 15 minutes

Bake Time: 30-35 minutes

Ingredients 

  • 4 Bananas
  • 1 cup White Sugar (I ran out of white sugar so I improvised with the following: 1/2 cup White Sugar, 1/4 cup Raw Sugar, and 1/4 cup Light Brown Sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon pure Vanilla 
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Butter
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda 
  • Cinnamon (optional) – I sprinkled cinnamon on the top of each muffin prior to baking
  • 1 cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips (optional) – I did not use any.

Preparation 

Preheat oven to 350.

Mash bananas and then blend until smooth. Combine all other ingredients one by one until smooth. 

Pour mixture into 12-cup muffin pan.

Or, pour mixture into large greased loaf pan. (If you opt for this, bake time will increase to 50-60 minutes).

Post Baking

You will smell your whole house with the fall aroma of Banana Bread! Open a window and enjoy the moment that is upon you. It is remarkably refreshing and invigorating. When your kitchen timer goes off your delicious muffins are ready to go! I often do the toothpick test to make sure there is no batter that sticks to it. If there is, bake a short while longer and check periodically.

Assuming the Banana Bread Muffins are done, take them out. Immediately brush the tops of each muffin with butter. Don’t be shy, a generous amount is okay. The butter will melt immediately. I brushed 4 muffins at a time. Sprinkle raw sugar on the top of each muffin before the butter dries for a beautiful and delectable garnish! *If you baked a loaf, brush the butter on the loaf and sprinkle raw sugar on top to your liking.

Enjoy!

Happy baking! And may you enjoy the colorful season that has welcomed us.
