Banana Nut Muffins

Grand Reopenning? I wouldn't go that far, Dan. But I do have some recipes and comments and original photography I'd like to share. And that should be good enough.

Whenever I buy bananas I always two or three really ripe ones leftover at the end of the week. Best thing to do with these are make banana bread or banana nut muffins. This muffin recipe is my grandmother's and I really like the lightness the yogurt and baking soda give the muffins (in lieu of more fat).

Banana Nut Muffins

Makes 12 small muffins


1 small muffin pan

1/2 C yogurt
1 t baking soda
2 T butter
2 C flour - any combination - all-purpose, wheat, corn, oatmeal, etc.
1 t baking powder
1 t vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 C sugar
2 bananas, mushed up
1/2 C nuts - walnuts, pecan, or any nuts to your liking
some other stuff - cinnamon, nutmeg, honey, etc.

Preheat over to 400 degrees.

Put yogurt in bowl and add baking soda. Let this sit and rise, about 10 minutes. Melt butter and let cool. Mix the dry ingredients (flour and baking powder). Mix the wet ingredients: whisk the eggs while adding the butter slowly, and the sugar, bananas, yogurt, and vanilla. Add the wets to drys. Mix and add the nuts and a teaspoon or so of your spice selection.

Bake for ~25 min. Keep an eye on them after 20.
