Banana Nut Muffins

I grew up on banana nut bread, it's a family favorite.
It's an amazing treat to taste it hot out of the oven.
When I originally wrote this recipe, it was to make a fat-free banana nut bread in a loaf pan. You can still make that recipe by using yogurt instead of the butter (both are posted below), however just by chance, Shannon decided to make this recipe as muffins, and they turned out marvelous.

 Of course we also use this recipe to make banana nut French toast by dipping slices in a mixture egg, nutmeg, and cinnamon, then frying.

Consequently bananas get sweeter as they ripen, so using overly-ripe bananas are often better than their fresh less ripe counterparts. If a banana starts to darken, place it in the freezer, and store till you're ready to use it your banana nut muffins.
