Banana Nut Cupcakes

Nothing smells and tastes quite as yummy as a baked banana nut bread. Try this twist on an old favorite and your kids are likely to love you more! LOL

1 ½ all-purpose flour
¾ cup dark brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3 eggs, lightly beaten
3 ripe bananas, mashed
2 tbsp butter, softened
3 tbsp golden raisins
¼ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp allspice
1 ½ tsp pecans, finely chopped (optional: reserve halves for garnish)
Pinch of Salt

Heat the oven to 350° F. Lightly grease muffin pan or to make it even simpler, line with paper baking cups.

Mix the flour together with the baking soda and baking powder.  Then add a pinch of salt and the spices. In a separate bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Slowly add the beaten egg. Add the flour to the butter/sugar mixture and alternate with the mashed bananas. Combine gently with a wooden spoon. Mix in the golden raisins and pecans. Gently stir.

Transfer the mixture into muffin pan. Garnish top of each muffin with pecan half. Bake for about 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Cool. Eat and enjoy! ;)

Note: For an extra nice touch, toast the pecans before chopping and mixing into batter. It will add an extra yummy layer of flavor. :)
