Easy Banana Nut Muffins

The other day my husband was pressuring me to eat a banana. There were two left, and they were already getting spotted. Normally I like to blend them into smoothies, but two were too many. And time was short.

So to use them both, I looked up an easy banana muffin recipe. I adapted it from this:  

I had to adapt it since I only had 2 large bananas. Reading the comments, I felt safe reducing the sugar to 1/2 cup, and started with 1 cup flour to see if more was needed. It was perfect.

I also added my new favorite ingredient:  coconut oil! Love it on oatmeal, just love it so much! Thinking that it is good for you, no need to swap out applesauce for oil.

They were easy, only cooked for 20 minutes, and tasted great! Oh, and I added walnuts. Because I could.

I hope you enjoy!
