  • 4 bananas, overripe
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


  • Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  • Line a 12 cup muffin tin with paper cups or lightly butter the tin.
  • Melt the butter, and set aside to cool while you mix the other ingredients.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, mash 2 of the bananas with a fork until there are only small lumps of banana. Set aside.  With an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the remaining 2 bananas and the brown sugar together on medium for 3 minutes.
  • Leaving the mixer on,  add in the melted butter, eggs, vanilla and cinnamon and beat for another  1 minute.
  • Turn off the mixer, add in the flour mixture and mix at low speed just until the flour mixture and wet mixture are combined. Do not over beat.
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer and using a spatula, stir the mixture to make sure no flour remains unmixed in the bottom of the bowl.  Then, fold in the nuts and the mashed bananas.
  • Using an ice cream scoop or a spoon, fill the muffin cups about 3/4 full.
  • Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Let cool on a wire rack before removing the muffins from the pan.


Serve these warm for the most moist and delicious Banana Nut Muffins you have ever tasted.
