“This is a recipe I would hate to lose. It was given to me by a friend which I tweaked to make a low-calorie. This recipe makes the best banana nut muffins EVER. These tasty hearty muffins will fill you up as they are very dense but packed full of flavor. Has a nice crunchy top and great when heated in microwave. Tip: throughout the year I freeze my bananas when they turn brown. This way I always have ripe bananas ready to go when I want to make these. Muffins will freeze well too.”

  3. In a large bowl, cream sugar, butter and vanilla until fluffy. Stir in eggs one at a time, beating with each addition.
  4. Stir in bananas and sour cream.
  5. In a second bowl, combine flour, soda, baking powder, cinnamon and walnuts; stir into banana mixture just until combined.
  6. Pour 2/3 full into muffin pans. I use a ice cream scoop full, this way all the muffins are the same size.
