Banana Muffiins with Almonds

I baked these banana muffins  on the first day of February.  We had a couple of bananas that  were overripe so I thought of making muffins out of it.
 Here's the recipe I followed from the
  1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  1 cup sugar
  1 teaspoon baking soda
  1/2 teaspoon salt
  3 medium ripe bananas
  1 egg
  1/3 cup vegetable oil
  1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. In another bowl, mash the bananas. Add egg, oil and vanilla; mix well. Stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened. 
  • Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups half full. Bake at 375° for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. 

The only thing different that I did from the recipe above is the addition of   chopped almond.  I added like half a cup of it and they were delicious!

Yum these look and sound great! My kids LOVE banana muffins so I'm pretty sure they'd love something like this! I know I would. So I may have to give them a try!

Those do sound absolutely delicious. I love the taste and smell of almonds in almost anything so to combine that with bananas would be delightful. I have made banana bread with pecans before, so I would definitely try out this combination as well.

Yum, these look so good! I love the idea of making muffins instead of a loaf because they are easy to grab and go. This would be a great way to get my daughter to eat banana. Thanks for sharing!

These look yummy! How do you think they would be with mini chocolate chips in them? Yes, I know that takes away the 'healthy' part, but...I'm going to try it!

This is a great way to use banana! Sometimes I have sorry-looking bananas in my kitchen. I heard the riper they are, the better the flavor. Thank you for the yummy idea :)

Oh my goodness, these look so good! I love anything with almonds and this is the perfect combo with the banana, and i would assume that it is healthy, at least that is what I will tell myself.

I love adding vanilla flavor to cakes and breads for that homemade taste. Your recipe sounds delicious and easy to prepare.. I shared a gluten free version of banana bread on my blog some time ago with similar ingredients. I'll have to try it with almonds the next time I bake.

Oh great idea! I usually do banana chip cookies and banana cake when we have ample stocks of banana. This one I haven't done yet! Thank you for sharing, I will definitely try this recipe.
