Banana Nut Muffin

These delicious banana nut muffins are very quick and easy to make. They just need a handful of ingredients . They make a healthy , tasty and quick snack or breakfast on the go especially for the busy days . The best part of home made muffins is no preservatives !You can add chocolate chips if you like . Since there was a demand for both varieties at my home , I made some of of them without the chocolate chips by adding it in the batter after the muffin trays with batter and nuts only were filled . The joys of the aroma that fills the home while baking these delicious muffins is really awesome . Addition of coffee in this recipe is optional and you can skip it if you don’t like the taste.Hope you are inspired to try this quick and easy muffins.Enjoy!
