Muffins, Banana Nut (P, KLP, TNT)
Source: Amy Wasser-Simpson & Barbara Wasser, Pesach 1997
Serves: 12

1/2 cup walnut oil or vegetable oil
3/4 cup granulated sugar, or more to taste
2 eggs
1/2 cup potato starch
3/4 cup matzo cake meal
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup walnuts or pecans finely chopped
1-1/3 cups mashed banana

Spray a muffin tin with vegetable oil or line with muffin papers. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat oil with sugar. Add eggs one at a time and continue beating. Add mashed bananas and combine well.

Combine matzo cake meal, potato starch, cream of tartar, baking soda, and ground cinnamon. Add the chopped nuts and incorporate. Add the dry ingredients to the egg-banana mixture, until just combined. Do not overmix.

Pour the batter into the prepared muffin tins, filling them to the top.

Bake 25-30 minutes until the top is brown and a toothpick inserted in the center has moist crumbs. Any leftovers may be reheated to serve.
