Today started out a sunny and nice summer morning, somewhere along the way the clouds and fog rolled in. Boo.

But, on the bright side, perfect baking weather….bonus 🙂

My kiddos love banana muffins. They ask for them all the time. Everytime they see bananas in the fruit bowl getting really ripe they bug me…non…stop.

I was kind of getting sick of the same old banana muffins so I though I’d put a twist on this classic favourite.

Then it popped into my head. Why not make them with a bananas foster twist?

and voila!…here they are.

They’re super yummy.

I chopped up the walnuts quite fine. You can omit them too if you want.
