Banana Ginger Muffins, a soft, warmly spiced muffin with walnuts or pecans that become morning addictive. Easy and healthy and perfect!



3 bananas, mashed
1/2 chopped pecans (or walnuts)
3/4 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar (plus more for garnish if desired)
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger (for a bolder flavor, grate 1/4 teaspoon fresh ginger)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
6 tablespoons melted butter


Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking oil. Set aside.

Combine the mashed bananas, nuts, oats, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, ginger and salt. In a separate bowl whisk together the egg, milk, and melted butter. Add the egg mixture all at once to the dry ingredients and stir until combined.

Using a cookie scoop, spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups. Garnish with brown sugar to taste on top of each muffin. Bake at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly and serve warm.
