Banana Nut Cupcakes / Muffins

This banana nut muffins was supposed to be my HBC challenge last month been challenged by +Shama Nagarajan  but some how I missed to post this. So here I am here with a delicious moist and super healthy cupcakes . If you have over riped bananas and don't know what to do with them they are very very useful for making cakes as the sugar in the riped bananas will help to sweeten the cake so well and leaves out a very nice aroma in baked goodies. I always make use of the ripened banana in cakes and muffins which is an effective and delicious way to use them than using for any other sweets. You can add any nuts you wish here walnut goes well but you can add pecans and almonds too if you wish. These can be enjoyed as a muffin or can be frosted with butter cream or fresh cream frosting and turned in to cupcakes.

As whole wheat flour is used for these muffins/ cupcakes they are highly nutritive and a filling breakfast muffins . Lets move on to the recipe.
