    Banana Nut Muffins on weekend mornings are the start to some of my favorite childhood memories. The smell of nutmeg, cinnamon, and caramelizing bananas makes me nostalgic. How can you go wrong with Banana Nut Muffins? They are easy to make, use up any otherwise unusable ingredient and freeze well.

    There are also so many variations. You can make a classic banana bread loaf or a whole wheat banana bread. Use walnut or pecans, or omit nuts altogether.

    Some people also love chocolate in their Banana Nut Muffins. The possibilities are endless and the base recipe is very hard to mess up, so feel free to switch it up however it works for you!

    I like to make muffins instead of a banana nut bread loaf when I know we are having company, or I am going to freeze the end result. Muffins are easier to take out of the freezer, one by one, and simpler to serve to the masses.

    I whip up a batch of my 5-minute blender butter or molasses butter and we are good to go!

    The last benefit to making banana nut muffins? It is quite literally my favorite batter to sneak a few licks off the beaters. I know, I know, don’t eat raw eggs… or nowadays raw flour too, but it is just so darn good!

    I should make a recipe for a safe-to-eat banana bread batter like my Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Eggless Peanut Butter Cookie Dough.
