Easy and Quick Banana Walnut Muffins

Of all the different areas under cooking I love baking the most. Regular daily cooking doesn't excite me, at all. But cooking for parties, making snacks or sides or baking gets me into action big time!
Ever since we have moved back to India from the US I have been slow on the baking front thanks to the lack of a good oven. But amongst one of the few things I have managed to bake are these banana walnut muffins.
These are the easiest, awesome-est, quickest and yummy-est muffins ever (apart from blueberry muffins maybe).

I had stumbled on the recipe at Saffron Hut long time back. I love her recipes and have tried my hand at a lot of them.

Here is the recipe that I use (I made some changes)! This makes 12 regular size muffins.
Enjoy eating these.

3 ripe regular size bananas - the riper they are the better
3/4 cup sugar (powdered sugar works best)
1/3 cup melted butter (unsalted)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups of flour (all purpose/maida)
1 tsp of vanilla essence
1/2 cup of walnuts, chopped/crushed


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F or 200 degrees C.
Chop/crush walnuts.
Line muffin pan with muffin paper cups (I use the re-usable silicon muffin mould in my microwave convection oven).
Mash bananas well in a bowl. 
Add sugar and melted butter.
Add the vanilla essence.
Sift the dry ingredients one by one into the sugar, butter, banana mixture.
Add some of the chopped walnuts leaving a few to garnish.
Mix just enough using a spatula to bring everything together.
Fill muffin cups about 3/4 to the top.
Sprinkle with remaining chopped walnuts. 
Bake for 20 minutes or till the muffins are golden brown (the batch in the pictures above turned a tad browner than usual but they were still yummy inside).
