Ever since I started baking, Banana Walnut muffin has been my all time favourite. The very first time I walked in to Starbucks.. banana walnut bread was the first thing I ever had ( i detest drinking coffee :P )
So there it was! Prior to making banana walnut muffins, I had tried Banana walnut bread a couple of times and when I was pretty confident of the consistency I decided to make Banana walnut muffin :) It tastes divine:) They were consumed, minutes after the picture was taken :) 

All purpose flour/ maida 1 ½ cups
Baking soda ½ tsp
Baking powder ½ tsp
Salt A pinch
Egg 3
Vanilla extract 1 tsp
Butter 120 grams
Banana (big, ripe) 2
Walnuts, chopped ½ cup
Sugar 1 cup
1. Preheat oven to 
350°F/ 170 C.
2. Sieve the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt to ensure even mixing and keep  

3. Mash the bananas into a smooth paste, add the vanilla extract keep aside. In a microwaveable bowl melt butter slightly until its soft.

4. Now add the melted butter,  eggs and 
sugar to the mashed bananas and whisk them until they form a thick mixture ( at this point the batter may seem a little curdled, but don't you worry, it's bound to happen)

5. Pour the mixture into the sieved flour bowl and mix them well with a spatula. Fold in the chopped walnuts and mix until everything gets incorporated.

6. Take a muffin pan and line them with paper muffin cups and spoon in the batter one by one until the cups are 3/4 full.

7. Sprinkle chopped walnuts over it and bake for 30 minutes until its golden brown and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
