There were days when I used to struggle with what to do with leftover bananas. But now all I wait to have some over-ripe bananas so that I can bake Banana Walnut Muffins.
Best Banana Walnut Muffins Recipe
My love for banana-based muffins started with my Banana Choco Chip Muffins and Chocolate Banana Cake. And since then, I cherish the overripe bananas as they lead to either a new recipe or a repeat of my older recipes. That’s the beauty of being a baker which I thoroughly enjoy.

The soft and moist crumb with crunchy walnuts and chocolate chips makes these Banana Walnut Muffins absolutely delicious. The best thing about this recipe is the usage of paper cups in which I have baked the muffins. It makes it easy to pack for kid’s tiffin.

To bake this easy banana walnut muffins recipe, I already had few over-ripe bananas. However, in case you are making these muffins with regular bananas then you might have to adjust the amount of milk and sugar in the recipe.
I have lost the count for how many times I have baked these banana muffins with walnuts. The only thing I always get is lots of appreciation and love. That makes this recipe close to my heart.

How to Make Banana Walnut Muffins
In a bowl take 170 gm overripe bananas. Using a fork or a potato masher, mash these into a fine paste. Add 100 gm brown sugar and 60 ml of any unflavored oil to the mashed bananas. The purpose of adding brown sugar is to enhance the flavor as well as the color of the bake.
However you can replace brown sugar with any other alternatives, please refer to my detailed article on sugar substitutes for baking.Keep whisking the sugar until it dissolves completely. Add ½ tsp of the essence. I have used cinnamon butter flavor from Ossoro. Few combinations are simply unbeatable. Banana, walnuts, and cinnamon is one such combination.
Take a sifter and add 125 gm all-purpose flour, ½ tsp baking powder, ½ tsp baking soda, and a pinch of salt to it. Sift everything together into the bowl of wet ingredients.
Sifting not only helps to aerate the flour but also helps to remove the unwanted particles. So do not skip this step.
Mix dry and wet ingredients. Now start adding milk in portions and continue to whisk until everything combines well. In total, I have used 100 ml of milk. The amount of milk can vary depending upon your flour quality so adjust it accordingly.Add 50 gm chopped walnuts and 50 gm Choco chips to the batter. The choice of nuts is totally optional. Stir it and the batter is ready.
Here I have used disposable “use and throw” Muffin cups. Fill each muffin cup up to 3/4th. Our muffins are ready to go inside the oven. Bake these in a preheated oven at 180 C for 25 minutes.
After 25 minutes, the muffins are out of the oven. Perform the toothpick test to check the doneness.
A clean toothpick means muffins are baked.
