cheap and yummy banana muffins

I thought I would share a banana muffin recipe that in my book is pretty great.  This recipe is easy, and you probably have everything you need already in your pantry.  It calls for walnuts, but if I don’t happen to have walnuts on hand, I leave them out and know one is the wiser!


Banana Muffins

 1 cup mashed overripe bananas
1/4 cup plus 2 Tbl. vegetable oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and grease muffin tins.  In a bowl combine bananas, oil, sugar and salt; blend well.  Add eggs and vanilla, blend well.  In another bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and walnuts.  Add to the banana mixture; stir just until moist.  Don’t over mix.  Spoon batter into muffin tins and bake for about 15 minutes.
