Banana Nut Muffins (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

September 17, 2016Living Freely Gluten Free

I absolutely love banana bread but my kids want muffins. If it is not in muffin form they are hesitant to even taste it. However, put anything in muffin form and they are all over it.

These are perfect for little hands for a quick breakfast or an afternoon snack. I love mine with a cup of coffee or some tea.

My kids prefer chocolate chip muffins. (Find the recipe HEE) but I love mine with some delicious walnuts on top.  It definitely brings me back to my childhood and Grandma Olga’s Banana Nut Bread. We used to go to my Cousin’s walnut orchard and pick walnuts. We would go back to her house and sit in the back room and crack walnuts together while watching her soap. Those were some of the best moments of my childhood. 

However, today no one has a walnut orchard for me to pick from so I will buy mine from the WinCo bulk bins and top my muffins with them
