Banana Nut Muffins
I will however be looking for ways of cooking with banana complementing it with things like the fresh red walnuts we get at the La Jolla Farmer's Market. mmm Walnuts. mmmm.
I wanted to find a really low calorie banana nut muffin and when I started my search I found ones that were low fat but had tons of flour, or ones that were low carb, but had tons of oil. So I made up my own recipe. It doesn't produce the lightest fluffiest sweetest variation, but it is a really dense moist and low calorie option.
1 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/8 C brown sugar
1/4 C lite sour cream
10 walnut halves
Mix it all up - spread into 9 cupcake / muffin servings. I used paper liners, but a spray of Pam could work too. Medium hot oven, lets call it 375 for 15-20 minutes (until they are ready- a bit brown - I can't remember how long I cooked them).
Andy ate 2 warm out of the oven. Without butter. Then he ate 2 more the next day **cold** halfway through our hike on the beach. Who doesn't like bananas now?
