Banana Nut Fig Muffins

When my bananas get too ripe I put them in the freezer until I’m ready to bake with them.  I also have a huge fig tree in my backyard that is loaded right now.  I decided to combine the two and make the most amazing banana fig nut muffins!!!

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.  Grease a muffin pan or use paper cups.

blend in a bowl:

  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • a large handful of figs (cut the stems off)
  • 3/4 sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup melted butter.

Using a wooden spoon add:  (do not use an electric mixer, you want to mix the dry ingredients with the least amount of stirring, this will make your muffins moister)

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts.

Fill your muffin pan.

In a small bowl combine:

  •  1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon butter

Mix well until mixture resembles cornmeal.  Sprinkle on muffins.

Bake for about 20 minutes.
