Brown Sugar Banana Nut Muffins. Loaded with ripe bananas, sour cream, cinnamon, and TWO kinds of nuts: walnuts and pecans. These muffins are SO moist and fluffy!
I totally dropped off the face of the Earth last week.
In case you missed it, it’s been juuuuust a little nuts in the Debth household, because well, the Debth household is moving.
Long story short:
Trevor, Teddy, and I are traveling around the United States for the next year (you can learn more about that here). So far we’ve been to Chicago (we ate the MOST delicious deep dish pizza, of course <– video coming soon) and now we’re currently in Indianapolis!
Next up? Who knows for our travels, but next up for yummy treats?
Brown Sugar Banana Nut Muffins!
Is there anything better than waking up to fresh outta the oven, warm, soft, pillowy, sugar-y muffins?
Let me help you out, the answer is no. 😉
I TRY to eat a healthy, protein/veggie packed breakfast Monday-Friday, but come weekend, gimme alllll the gooey and delicious muffins.
It just feels right doesn’t it?
Typically, I’m a chocolate muffin kinda girl: Chocolate Chip Muffins, Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins . . .
But today, I just wanted a really rich, dense, banana muffin. Sans chocolate.
But you could TOTALLY add chocolate if you wanted. 😉
You’ll start by whisking together your wet ingredients: mashed ripe bananas (watch the video 👆 for my roasting banana trick if you don’t have ripe bananas!), canola oil, vanilla, eggs, brown sugar, and sour cream.
Then you’ll stir in flour, baking soda, ground cinnamon, and salt.
Finally, you’ll fold in chopped walnuts AND pecans.
Scoop ’em into your fave JUMBO muffin tin (or regular if you’d prefer) and top with a brown sugar/cinnamon mixture.
An ultra fluffy, super moist, perfectly sweet, truly flavorful, with just a little crunch from the pecans and walnuts . . .
Grab a cup of coffee and go to town on these Brown Sugar Banana Nut Muffins!
