Bruised Banana Diet

Are you tired of desperately trying to fit that casserole into your 'fridge, but it just won't squeeze in 'cause of those pesky bananas?
I can show you how to lose those last 2 stubborn bananas in just under 30 minutes!

Banana Walnut Muffins
Banana Walnut Muffins
-adapted from Food Network

1 1/4 c whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp kosher salt
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 c butter, softened
3/4 c white sugar
1/4 c dark brown sugar
2 ripe bananas, peeled and mashed with a fork
1/2 c (heaping) walnut pieces
1/4 c Granola

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1. Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside
2. In a blender, cream together the sugars and butter.
3. Incorporate the eggs and vanilla until light and creamy. Add bananas.
4. Slowly pour in the flour mixture, then finally the nuts.
5. Spoon about 1-2 tablespoons of the batter into muffin cups. Sprinkle the tops with granola
6. Bake for 25 minutes or until toothpick comes clean from the center.

Monkey Notes: Banana bread is very similar to a good batch of chili or marinara sauce: the flavors tend to develop over time. Bake these a day or two before you plan to serve them. They're good fresh, but AWESOME a few days old. Good luck waiting.
