Banana Nut Muffins

4 ripe bananas (The original recipe was 3. I increased by 1 to compensate for the egg)
1 egg (I omitted this)
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup melted butter (unsalted)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups of flour (all purpose)
Small handful of walnuts, chopped.
Preparation Method: 
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Line muffin pan with muffin paper cups
  3. Mash bananas well
  4. Chop the walnuts and reserve 1 tbsp for sprinkling on top.
  5. Add sugar and melted butter
  6. Mix the dry ingredients really well or sift and then add to banana mixture [ Mixing dry ingredients is important. Otherwise you will be biting into lumps of uncooked baking powder - not a pleasant taste!]
  7. Add the chopped nuts.
  8. Mix just enough to bring everything together
  9. Fill muffin cups about 3/4 to the top
  10. Sprinkle with chopped walnuts.
  11. Bake for 20 minutes or till the muffins are golden brown.
This makes 12 large muffins.
