These Banana Nut Muffins are so tender and delicious! They are packed with fresh bananas, pecans and finished with a buttery crumb topping.
These Banana Nut Muffins are so moist and tasty, perfect for making ahead! Start by combining the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and don’t over mix. It’s ok if there are lumps in the batter!
I also like to toss the chopped pecans in a little bit of flour. This keeps them from sinking to the bottom while they are baking.
Spray the muffin tin with non stick cooking spray and use muffin tin liners. I like the parchment paper liners.
The crumb topping is really a bonus for these muffins. Don’t skip it! It’s easy to make and really makes these muffins bakery quality!
Big, beautiful and and packed with buttery banana nut muffin goodness!
