Banana-Nut Muffins

I made these for Ed and his father for their trip to Winnipeg yesterday.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup mashed banana (works out to about 1 1/2 bananas)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 400. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan. Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a medium bowl; make a well in center.

Mix milk, egg, oil, banana and walnuts in a small bowl. Then pour mixture into well of dry ingredients.

Mix batter just until moistened; do not overmix.

Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean or until muffins are golden brown. (about 15-20 minutes).

Makes 12 muffins.
Variations: Blueberries or raisins may be substituted for the mashed bananas in the muffin batter.
