ABOUT THESE MUFFINS

More flavourful with a touch of spices like cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg.
These muffins are fluffy and taste great, perfect to make your tea time experience a memorable one.
The only reason I decided to bake banana muffins is because I had some bananas that were ripe and I knew they were perfect for some baking. I had this banana muffin recipe in my recipe diary and thought it would be perfect to share it with you guys.
It’s a flavorful muffin with the right amount of ripe sweetness from the bananas. Walnuts and bananas make a great combination and these muffins are a proof. Roasted walnuts add a crunch and compliment these muffins in every way. I like to call them breakfast muffins since its made of fruit, nuts, and spices. Good to start your day with muffins like these.
LETS TALK INGREDIENTS
I’m not someone who would substitute eggs for this recipe but just in case some of your’ll are curious to do so here’s what you can do
You can use egg replacement powder.
Measurement: 1 egg = 1/2 tablespoon egg replacement powder + 2 tablespoons of water
Mix the water and powder together and add to the batter just like you would add the eggs
Banana is the star ingredient in this muffin recipe. The strong banana flavor in this muffin is what makes it different from the others. To get the best flavor make sure to use ripe bananas and not the regular ones. Ripe bananas are mushy and have the right amount of sweetness that we need. If you have regular bananas that are not ripe just bake the whole banana in the oven for 10-15 mins on 160 degrees C. This will ripen the bananas and make them mushy, now their good to use
Toast the walnuts in the oven or on the gas to bring out the real flavor from them. Toasted walnuts are more crunchy. Walnuts are added in the batter as well as a big bunch of them on the top of each muffin, these add a crunch in every bite. Do not chop the walnuts fine, keep them chunky
This recipe contains a dash of spices like cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg powder. When you bite into these muffins, you’ll know why we added these spices. It makes them intense with a milk aroma. In case you are not comfortable with adding any of these spices, feel free to skip it.
