Moist Banana Muffins

(Re-posted after Blogger went hay-wire and deleted many posts from last Wednesday!)

A few months ago, I was looking for a new recipe to use up some old bananas and found this recipe. We love it and have made it a few times now! Always keep your bad bananas and find a use for them, the more ripe the banana is (mostly black) the better they are for baking. Banana bread, muffins, cupcakes, etc, YUM! I never toss a bad banana :)

3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I didn't have any this time, but these are a great, highly recommended addition)
1 - 2 bananas (1 cup)
1 container yogurt (mine is 6 oz)
1 large egg
4 tbsp melted butter

In a small bowl, mix 1/4 cup sugar with 1 tsp cinnamon (or use a pre-made cinnamon sugar mix), set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, remaining 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, remaining 1/2 tsp cinnamon and walnuts.

In a small bowl, beat together the banana, yogurt, and egg with a fork. Stir in the butter. Stir the wet ingredients into the flour mixture until combined.

Like a 12-cup muffin tin with baking liners and fill them with the batter. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture on top. Bake at 375 degrees until golden and a toothpick inserted into the centers comes out dry, about 20 minutes. Enjoy!

 I found this recipe on and it's one to try. The yogurt makes the muffins so moist and you can even have fun with the yogurt flavor. I used strawberry banana this time, but you could try some fun flavors to change it up!
