Banana Crunch Muffins

Adapted from the lovely Barefoot Contessa

Serves: Lots!!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees


3 cups flour
2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 stick unsalted butter {melted and cooled}
2 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 ripe, mashed bananas
1 cup small diced walnuts
1 cup shredded coconut (I skipped the coconut)
1 cup granola (I skipped the granola)
You could also add in mini chocolate chips. 


Mix the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.  Add in the cooled, melted butter. Combine eggs, milk, vanilla, and the mashed bananas in another bowl and add to the flour mixture.
Don't over mix.  Fold the walnuts and any other yummy add in you choose into the mixture.

Note:  This recipe could also be made into a banana nut loaf.  Spread into 2 greased loaf pans for the bread. Or if you want these muffins, fill 2 muffin pans with cupcake liners. Pretty and adorable liners are better.

Bake 1 hour and ten minutes for the loaf or 25-30 minutes for the muffins.

The topping you see is just a little granola sprinkled on top.
