Update: Banana Nut Muffins

I made three batches of banana nut muffins – the third being my favorite. I decided to get all crunchy (meaning treehugger) on ’em by adding wheat flour, ground flax seed, brown sugar, and less sugar overall. Four bananas are better than three, and as always the blacker the tastier. And don’t skimp on the cup of walnuts!

Warning: avoid storing in plastic bags (like Ziploc) – the perfectly crusty muffin tops become moist. Keep them out and then after a couple of days freeze the leftovers.

Below you’ll find my revised ingredient list for the original recipe:


3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
1/3 cup melted butter
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon coffee/espresso (optional)
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
3/4 cup of all-purpose flour
1/2 cup wheat flour (a little over can’t hurt)
1/4 cup flax seed (ground)
1 cup chopped walnuts (toasted or raw)
