Because the banana was not peeling well….hahahooahhaha oh my, I think I need a vacation.
Okay, let’s be serious for a moment and talk about these seriously good Banana Nut Muffins.
A while back a friend asked me to post a good banana bread recipe. I know, I know, this isn’t banana bread. But what’s a girl to do without a loaf pan on hand. Don’t worry though, these delicious Banana Nut Muffins can easily be converted to a banana bread recipe.
One of your bananas needs to be mashed by fork. You want to just lightly mash it to give your muffins good texture.
The other banana you can mix until smooth along with the brown sugar, butter, eggs, sour cream and vanilla.
Now this is the important step. When mixing in the dry ingredients, do NOT use a mixer. Use a spatula and gently mix in the dry ingredients and mashed banana until just incorporated. Over mixing will cause the muffins to come out tough. Don’t worry about lumps, they will bake away. The key to super moist and soft banana nut muffins or banana bread is to not over mix and using super ripe bananas!
Fill each muffin tin about half way. Use an ice cream scoop to have the muffins bake to the same size. They will be nice and moist and will peel out of the tins easily after they are baked.
Okay, just one more. What do you call two banana skins? A pair of slippers.
