Banana Nutcase Muffins

By Ness on September 15, 2008 | Desserts

I call these nutcase muffins because everyone who tries them goes nuts for them. They are absolutely delicious and make the house smell amazing. Just keep an eye out for the neighborhood monkeys that like to come by and snatch them up…at least that is what my husband claims happened to them when I come home and find an empty container with only banana nutcase crumbs remaining.

1 ½ cups WW gluten free flour mix
¼ tsp salt
3 bananas preferably ripe
½ cup packed light brown sugar
¼ cup sugar
8 Tbs (1 stick) butter melted
1/8 tsp nutmeg
¼ cup milk
1 egg
¼ tsp xanthan gum
1 ½ tsp baking soda
¾ cup walnut pieces
Additional sugar to sprinkle on top of muffins

Preheat oven to 350

Grease 12 cup muffin tin. Using a potato masher mash up the bananas until fairly smooth. Add melted butter, both sugars, milk, and eggs to the mashed bananas and stir to combine. Sift flour, xanthan gum, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl. Combine flour into wet ingredients and stir until thoroughly mixed. Add walnut pieces and fold in to combine. Divide batter among muffin tins and sprinkle each muffin with a touch of sugar. Bake until muffins are golden brown in color and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted, about 30 minutes. Let cool and then go nuts or bananas.
