Nuts over Bananas!!

Hello!! I’m back with another banana recipe!! This time it is a muffin recipe. This sweet treat has different texture to it. For example crunchy from the pecan nuts and mushiness from the mashed bananas. This is my go-to breakfast muffin! This muffin would go really well with a cup of coffee or tea or milk! It also provides the nutrients I need. From the pecan nuts, I get vitamins from the B group, A group and E group. 90% of the fat content in pecans are unsaturated fats! From the bananas, I would feel more energise throughout the day! The muffins are quite filling,so it would  keep me full till lunchtime.

So enough talking, and let’s get down to the recipe!

What I really love about this recipe is that it is very easy to make, ingredients are accessible at any supermarket and I love the different textures in it. The muffins are light and airy and it brings out the banana flavour and the pecans are evident in every bite.

I hope you would enjoy this banana recipe as much as I did. And I really wish that I turned non-banana lovers into somewhat a banana lover! Till next time, Good Luck & Have Fun!
