Wow! Were these ever good! Initially I was attracted to the unusual ingredients in this recipe; walnut oil, potato starch, etc. not the usual staples required for muffin making. The muffins were exceedingly moist (the walnut oil no doubt) and I particularly loved the addition of cinnamon, a nice, delicate balance with the banana and walnuts. Hubby thought they were a little bit sweet but I thought they were just right, I suppose sugar to taste will vary slightly from one to another. These are definitely a keeper in our house. I’m submitting a photo of these tasty morsels and I would encourage anyone to indulge themselves in baking up a batch of these marvelous muffins!
