In a small bowl, mash your bananas.

Add butter, egg, vanilla and mix to combine.

In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients and fold in the wet ingredients.

Don’t forget to fold in the walnuts. 

This recipe makes about a dozen muffins. I use a cookie scoop to fill the liners evenly. Be sure to top each muffin with a few extra nuts for a tasty crunch on the muffin tops!
