For a mid-week morning treat, these muffins come together in fifteen minutes, with only fifteen minutes in the oven (remember ovens vary so 15 minutes is an approximation, 14 to 18 minutes is the general range depending on your oven) This recipe is by Alison of Celebrating Sweets. We’ve adapted it for different dietary needs and also as a small batch recipe.

1 cups mashed very ripe bananas about 1-2 bananas
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Follow same instructions as stated.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl, whisk melted butter and ⅔ cup brown sugar until well combined, about 1 full minute. Add eggs, mashed banana, and vanilla, whisking until combined.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and use a rubber spatula to lightly stir the batter until almost combined. Add ½ cup walnuts and stir until no streaks of flour remain. Be careful not to over-mix.
Grease 15 standard-sized muffin cups and divide the batter evenly among the cups. Sprinkle the top of each cup with brown sugar and chopped walnuts (topping). Bake for 14-17 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center, comes out clean. Place the pan on a wire rack to cool.
