These banana muffins have the wonderful taste of banana bread with the nutty taste of oats and the crunch of pecans.
I have lists and stacks of recipes I’ve discovered and want to try. Finding a wonderful new and unique recipe gets me really excited and I often can’t wait to dive in and explore the recipe further.There are also my tried-and-true recipes, the ones I stick by and make over and over again. They’re like a good friend, you know they won’t disappoint.
My banana bread recipe is that kind of recipe. It’s what I make when I have overripe bananas that I don’t want to toss. The aroma and the taste always makes my husband and my kids happy and they never complain when I make it over and over again, instead it’s eaten in a day.
I’m not sure why, but the other afternoon I decided to tweak my old standby banana bread recipe. I didn’t make a lot of changes but what I did gave that faithful recipe a new life. It’s amazing what a few simple changes can bring. I still love my old recipe but this one is really, really nice too.
These pecan filled banana muffins have the wonderful flavor of my banana bread but with the nutty taste from the oats and the crunch from the pecans.
