I wanted to make something as a dessert & decided to make these delicious Banana Nut Muffins, using some over ripe bananas that I had, & decided to use honey instead of sugar, & EVOO (extra Virgin Olive Oil instead of butter or other oil, this was sort of an experiment to see how they would turn out.

They are very moist, light, & very nutty from the nuts in the muffin as well as on top, & not too sweet, just the way my husband prefers. This recipe makes 24 large muffins, but from what has already been eaten, there won't be any to freeze for later. They're excellent. Give them a try. Enjoy
