Recipe by Steve P.

Absolutely marvelous tasting muffins. I usually make these in the Fall when nuts are fresh and in good supply.

Since my DH loves black walnuts and I had some bananas that needed used, I tried this recipe. With some emendations, it worked for me quite successfully. Changes I made: (1) I think the temp of 300 degrees may be wrong. Need to bake 30 minutes instead of 20. (2) A bit too much fat here, so I substituted 1/4 c. applesauce for half of the butter/margarine. (3) Used Splenda and Splenda Brown Sugar Blend for the sugars (a dietetic requirement for us). The muffins are tasty - lovely texture - and the flavors of banana and black walnut do work well together. Thanks for this recipe.
