Banana Walnut Muffins

Banana Walnut Muffins

Whole wheat flour works perfectly with banana breads and muffins. It basically acts like a shot in the arm to the already nutty flavor. This recipe is especially moist thanks to the use of yogurt in the place of milk. The toasted walnuts create a sweet level of depth to this unbelievably simple recipe.
