Muffins are like cupcakes you can eat for breakfast. Banana nut muffins are great, but with a dash of coffee, they are even better. These muffins are simple to make, and undeniably yummy. With a hint of espresso, these are a treat to wake up to in the morning.

This recipe makes about twelve muffins, sometimes a little bit more.

These muffins consist of ingredients you will most likely already have.

To make these muffins, you will need:
3 very ripe bananas
1/3 cup of unsalted butter
3/4 cup of sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 1/2 Tbsp espresso or strong coffee**
1 teaspoon of baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cup of flour
1 cup walnuts

** You can use either ground coffee, or instant espresso. If you do not have instant espresso, use regular ground coffee. Instant espresso is better to use because it has a more distinct coffee flavor, and regular ground coffee does not mix into the batter as well as the espresso does.

And if you aren't a coffee person, you can omit the coffee entirely. But I recommend keeping it in.
