banana and walnut muffins

I had two softening bananas, just going brown, and half a cup of walnuts sitting around doing nothing, so on Monday afternoon I took a break from studying to bake some banana and walnut muffins. They were soft and pretty tasty. I also like to sub chocolate chips for the walnuts.

I love that you use chinese soup spoons as measures.

I do that as well, a bad habit of growing up in my family. Same with using chinese rice bowls.

I don't know if it's a bad habit, just a habit. Those chinese rice bowls and soup spoons are so convenient for all sorts of measurements. :o)

Can I just say that using Chinese soup spoons as measures = WIN?

Not vegan, but those muffins look and sound yummy!

Chinese soup spoons as a measure are excellent.

Sorry about the deleting etc! I try to comment on food with this one, and on everything else with the other one, and sometimes I forget! :o)
