Banana Walnut Muffins

Banana Walnut Muffins
We had 4 very ripe bananas and everyone has been craving something sweet.  A new recipe was called for.  The scent wafting from the oven so delicious, reminding me of banana breads from childhood.  Could these muffins possibly measure up?  Yes, I believe they do.

1/2 cup Coconut Sugar
1 flax egg (1 Tbsp Flax Meal combined with 3 Tbsp Warm Water)
1/2 cup Light Olive Oil
3-4 Very Ripe Bananas (mashed)
1 cup Unbleached All Purpose Flour
2/3 cup Spelt Flour
1/3 cup Coconut Flour
3/4 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/3 cup Walnuts (chopped)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Use cupcake liners or grease muffin tin.  Mix sugar, oil, and flax mixture until combined.  Stir in mashed bananas until smooth.  In separate bowl, combine flours, salt, and baking soda.  Add wet ingredients to dry.  Mix until smooth.  Stir in walnuts.  Spoon batter into muffin tin.  Bake 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of muffin comes out clean.  Remove muffins to wire rack to cool.  Eat warm or cool completely and store in airtight container in refrigerator or freezer.
