2 ripe bananas
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1/2 cup nonfat milk
1 large egg, beaten
4 tablespoons butter, melted
3/4 cups chopped walnuts
Make a 3-inch-long slice down each banana skin and lay the bananas on a baking sheet. (I covered sheet with foil)
Roast bananas until skins turn black and juices in the bananas start to run from the slits in the skins, about 10 minutes. Remove bananas from oven but keep oven on. When bananas are cool enough to handle, discard peels and place bananas in bowl. Mash with a fork and set aside.
In a large bowl, conbine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, and whisk to blend evenly. In another large bowl, whisk milk, egg and melted butter. Stir in the mashed banana. Thoroughly combine dry ingredients with banana mixture and stir with wooden spoon to blend well.
Place paper liners in 12-cup muffin tins. Spoon muffin batter into each cup, filling about three-quarters full. Bake until golden brown or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes. Serves 12
