Banana Nut Muffins
Since Cook Like a Star this month is Paula Deen, I searched for a banana muffin recipe and found this. I changed a few things, such as reducing the sugar from 1 cup to 1/3cup (bananas are naturally sweet) plus I substituted 1/4 cup of walnuts with chocolate chips (my kids love them in muffins!). I also used walnuts in lieu of pecans since I have them in the fridge. This is an easy stir-and-bake recipe, so my kids could do it with minimal supervision.
The muffins were moist, nutty and just right in terms of sweetness. Thank you kids for making them!
On a separate note, my blog has surpassed 4 million hits today... thanks again for all your support! :D
