Karen’s Killer Fixin’s…Banana Nut Muffins

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s!  Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me.  I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers here.

So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy.  It might be a main course recipe.  A cookie or baked item.  Candy.  Salads.  Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is BANANA NUT MUFFINS!

Today’s muffin recipe is a great standby muffin.  Don’t know what to do with those old bananas?  Use them after their prime for this great recipe.  If you don’t have time to use them today or tomorrow, and hate to throw them away, throw those bananas in the freezer and pull them out when you DO have time!  Do take time to thaw them before you use them.  (Recommend running frozen bananas under warm water until you can remove peels before thawing.) These muffins are also excellent with a tablespoon or two of peanut butter.  Yeah, yeah, I was a peanut butter banana sandwich lover when I was growing up!

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s.

Happy eating!


P.S.  We’re at 1 recipe and counting with this posting!  Hope you find some recipes you like.  If you don’t want to miss any future recipes, be sure to return to my blog next Friday.  If this is your first visit, check out past blogs for more Killer Fixin’s.




[12 Muffins]

2 cups flour
¼ cup sugar
1 T. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
1 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
1 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
¾ cup mashed banana
½ cup chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Grease 12-muffin pan.  Sift flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a medium bowl.  Make well in center.  Mix milk, egg, water, oil, banana and walnuts in small bowl.  Pour mixture into well.  Mix batter just until moistened; do not over-mix.  Spoon batter into prepared muffin pan. Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean or until muffins are golden brown, about 15 minutes.

NOTE:  To ensure round muffin tops, grease only the bottom and halfway up the sides of each muffin cup.

  1. Hey woman! These sound divine. If you are using WordPress for your blog like I am, look for the plug in ShareAny. 🙂 It adds a link so folks can share your posts more easily. 🙂

  2. Hi, Arwen. Thanks for the tip! I’m looking for ways to improve navigation and use. I’ll look into this plug in.

    Hope you enjoy the muffins. They’re really scrumptious, especially warm out of the oven on cold days!
