2 Cups flour

3/4 Cup walnuts (chopped) divided

Before You Start– Preheat oven to 350°, line muffin pan with paper liners.

Lets Make It! In a mixing bowl combine sugar and butter, using your electric mixer beat on medium high speed until creamy. Add eggs, vanilla and bananas. Continue to mix until well combined and free of any large lumps. In the other mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. Using a fork, stir to combine. Slowly add the dry mixture to the banana mixture a little at a time beating on medium speed to combine. Do not over mix. Beat until well blended. Fold in ½ cup of the walnuts. Fill prepared muffin cups about ¾ of the way full. Bake for 15 minutes, remove from the oven and sprinkle remaining walnuts on top of the muffins and return to oven and continue baking for 5-10 minutes or until they pass the then transfer to wire rack to cool.
