1/2 cup Chopped pecans; or walnuts

Original recipe makes 12 Servings



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 12-cup muffin pan with cupcake liners; set aside.

In medium bowl, combine flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt; set aside.

In large bowl, with electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time, and vanilla until blended, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Gradually beat in flour mixture, then bananas and pineapple, just until blended. Stir in the nuts.

Spoon evenly into prepared muffin pan.

Bake 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely.

Freezes well.

Love this recipe! I use it all the time. I have never put the pineapple in it and it is still my favorite!!

Oh, and thanks Beachbumette for adjusting your recipe to say "pineapple thoroughly drained" to remind us not so good cooks, as per my feedback I left ages ago. I have learnt but still look up Bigoven for this recipe :-)

I had some compliments on them, but they just weren't my cup of tea.

I'm in Autralia so I didn't click until later that 350 degrees was faranheit. Although our ovens don't go that high so I had it at 200 degrees based on gas fan forced. Word to the wise in Australia - 180 degrees is sufficient and 170 degrees for gas fan forced at 20mins turns out a great muffin. I also got caught out not mashing the banana and draining pineapple even though dry ingredients were suggested to be combined and set aside. For us beginner cooks - might be an idea to edit recipe to suggest getting pineapple draining early too. Otherwise - yum, just had a warm one - outstanding!!!!!
