banana nut muffins

banana nut muffins

I think banana/walnut is my favourite baking combination, it just never fails! (unless you’re allergic to nuts I suppose…)  These muffins are great for a snack or breakfast, and are rich and filling with oatmeal and walnuts. With this recipe I finally managed to make […]
