Banana Bran Muffins
These banana bran muffins are flavored with brown butter and toasted pecans. They are moist and sweet. The bran muffins can be served warm with butter with butter or eaten on the go.
I love baking muffins as a quick healthy breakfast the family will enjoy. I like to combine whatever ingredients we have lying around. This morning, that was some old, ripe bananas and some bran flake cereal.
When baking with banana, I like to use a fork and smush the banana inside a glass measuring cup. That way, you’ll know when you have 2 cups and you won’t have to dirty another dish transferring the smushed banana from a bowl to a measuring cup.
If you’ve never browned butter before, it’s a very simple and quick process that can add great dimension of flavor to your baked goods. I’d recommend reading the how to make brown butter step-by-step guide (with pictures). In this recipe it adds an extra nuttiness to the bran muffins.
