wassup stud?

[colin stuart booties]

Ah welcome fall foliage.

Oh autumn. I love it. When the seasons change, I throw my shorts into storage and run to the nearest Starbucks for a caramel apple spice. Mmmmmm. Amazing.

Work has been pretty rough. Sometimes I feel like I wake up, go to work, and drown for 11 hours only to go home, go to sleep, and do it again in the morning. These 7 day work weeks are really starting to burn me out.

Yesterday to ease some of the stress, I decided to take the really gross looking bananas that have been sitting on my kitchen counter and turn them into muffins.

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 ripe bananas, peeled and coarsely mashed
1 cup of chopped walnuts

Line 18 muffin cups with paper liners. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Whisk the flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a medium bowl to blend. Beat the sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl to blend. Stir in the banana. Add the dry ingredient mix and the walnuts and stir just until blended.

Divide the batter among the prepared muffin cups. Bake the muffins on the middle rack until the tops are golden brown and a tester inserted into the center comes out with no crumbs attached, about 25 minutes. Transfer the muffins to a rack and cool slightly.

Seriously, make these muffins. You will love me.
