<------The finished product! Yowzers, these are good. I'm eating one right now as I type.
This time, I doubled the recipe and made 4 huge muffins, just in case you're looking at the pic and questioning the math :).
GIANT BANANA WALNUT MUFFINS
1 very ripe banana (the riper the better, but today all I had were green ones and it was fine)
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
a pinch of salt (however much that is??)
1 tablespoon melted vegan butter (or 1 tablespoon regular butter)
1 small flax egg (or 1 regular egg)
* To make flax egg, mix 1 tablespoon ground flax seed with 2 1/2 tablespoons water. Set aside 5 min.)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
whole walnuts for topping
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare flax egg and set aside.
In a large bowl, mash the banana, leaving some texture.
Add brown sugar, baking soda, and salt and mix for one minute.
Stir in flax egg, vanilla, and melted butter.
Add flour and stir just until combined.
Divide batter into two sections of a jumbo-sized muffin pan (as in you're making just two jumbo muffins).
Top with walnuts.
Bake for 25-30 minutes until tops are golden brown.
Eat as soon as possible because they're seriously delicious.
