If you like banana bread, you’ll like this recipe for banana nut muffins. I prefer to make muffins because they bake a little faster and they’re quick to serve my child care group. Occasionally I make muffins for morning or afternoon snack and I prefer to serve homemade. They just taste so much better! We have to be nut-free so I skip the walnuts when the kids are here but the walnuts add great flavor if you can have them.
