Banana Caramel Nut Muffins

Banana Caramel Nut Muffins

We have a new breakfast ritual in our house. We stay in and have breakfast together every Sunday. It’s nothing fancy. I usually make  coffee and pop those croissants from the can in the oven! It’s nice to relax and take it easy one day a week. I had a lot of leftover bananas from when I made banana cupcakes so instead of croissants I dragged myself out of bed and with a little effort made some muffins to serve warm.

For some reason I haven’t made muffins in a year!

These were a great weekend breakfast a long with a homemade vanilla spice latte. I’m sending my muffins away to Alphabakes where the letter is B this month! Created by Caroline and Ros (this month’s host).

  1. I have exactly three ripe bananas sitting on my counter right now, totally ignored by everyone. This must be fate, then. I guess I’m gonna hafta make your muffins now :)

  2. These look yummy! I might be missing this…but where is the caramel?

    • haha, there’s no actual caramel in there. The brown sugar will give the muffins their caramel flavor. That’s the title listed in the book. Makes them sound more jazzy than just plain old banana muffins :-p

  3. Thank you so much for entering these to AlphaBakes. I love baking with bananas and this looks amazing as does your banana cupcakes. I can’t believe you haven’t made muffins in a year! ps Love your new Sunday ritual :)

  4. Just made them. They are fabulous, light and nutty and just the right amount of banana-y.

    Thanks for the recipe, Kelly!
