Banana Nut Muffins – best banana nut muffins you will ever have, with some tips and tricks on how to make your muffins have a big muffin top.
Muffins are probably one of the first things I learned to make, but I still remember the days when I used to buy the muffin mix and use that to make muffins. Little did I know how easy the batter really is to make. I love to make all sort of muffins, but probably the most popular muffins I make are these banana nut muffins.
For these muffins I wanted them to have a bigger top, so in order for this to happen your batter needs to be thicker than usual muffin batter. The other thing you’ll need to do is fill the muffin cups to the top if not more, and because this batter is thicker, it’s not going to flatten out as you bake them.
