Sprinkiling cinnamon-sugar on the batter just before baking makes a crunchy top. I have also subbed chocolate chips for the walnuts.

- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup chopped walnuts

- 1 cup mashed banana (about 1 to 2)
- 1 cup whole milk yogurt
- 1 large egg
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted (or vegetable oil)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 12 cup muffin pan with baking liners.
- In a small bowl mix 1/4 cup sugar with 1 tsp cinnamon. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, mix flour, remaining 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, salt remaining 1/2 tsp cinnamon, walnuts and raisins.
- In a small bowl, beat together the banana, yogurt and egg with a fork. Stir in the butter. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined.

Wonderful muffins. They are very simple and quick to make and turn out so light, moist and flavorful. I made 6 muffins using Splenda for the sugar and about 1 tsp of canola oil, skipped the raisins to lighted the sugar load. Sorry Marz but I did use fat free yogurt but as I said they didn't suffer from it (IMHO anyway). I need to mention that I baked my 6 at 350 and they were perfect in 24 mins.Simply scrumptious.
