Banana Nut Muffins


Hello All! Are you looking for ways to use up overripe bananas? Well, then here is a perfect recipe to use them. Actually, at our home we get extra bananas and let them over ripe so that we can make these muffins! These homemade banana nut muffins are always in demand and thank god bananas are available all through the year! 

Freshly baked banana nut muffins make a great breakfast, snack or lunch box addition. You can use this same recipe to prepare Banana Nut Bread too but these days I prefer prepare muffins firstly because it saves lot of energy and time as baking a bread takes around 75 minutes where as the muffins are ready in 25 minutes. Also there is something about the grab and go appeal of a muffin that makes them easy to serve or pack for lunch!

Some recipes that I learnt from my parents, some from my friends and their moms. Some I got from recipe books and some I got from internet.
