Banana muffins with cinnamon and walnut

What is your thought on the warm banana & cinnamon scent wafting from your kitchen on a cold morning ?

Would you like to let it go or would you let it stay for a while ..well I would love to hold on. On the note of holding on how old do you think are these pics? Exactly two years. ... Thats right since 2013 Jan  :))....  Not that I forgot about them but I just love the mood of the pics and love looking at them if I may say so. I know there may be many technical flaws in it :) but that was the first time I tried shadows (from the maple tree just outside my window) and really liked the effects. 

Ripe banana( smashed)-1
All purpose flour- 1 1/2 cups
Melted butter-1/3 cup
Sugar-1/3 cup
Egg - 1 beaten (substitute it with 2 tbsp yogurt)
Cinnamon powder - 1 tsp
Baking soda - a small pinch
Walnuts (toasted or raw)- 1/3 cup chopped

No need for a mixer with this recipe.
1. With a spoon, mix butter into the mashed banana in a large mixing bowl.
2 .Mix in the sugar, egg and cinnamon powder.
3 .Sprinkle the baking soda in the mixture and mix in.
4 .Add the flour, mix until it is just incorporated. Fold in the chopped walnuts.
5 .Pour mixture into a prepared muffin tin. 
Preheat oven to 350F and bake for 25-30 minutes. Insert a toothpick  into the center of a muffin if it comes out clean, it's done. Cool on a rack.
Serve with a warm glass of flavored milk.
Do not over mix as the muffins will become dense.
After adding baking soda bake immediately do not keep batter for long.
 **After adding banana and egg etc if u think the batter is too runny add a tbsp of flour to make it right consistency. The recipe is quite forgiving.

Hope you like it.
