How to Make Caramel-Banana Muffins


  • 1Line twelve muffins cups with paper bake cups. In a small bowl, mix pecans, 2 tablespoons sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.

  • 3In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the banana mixture, beating on low speed until just combined.

Drizzle with a little melted butter and sprinkle with remaining pecan mixture.
