Salted Caramel Banana Nut Muffins take banana muffins to another world!
I woke up with an undeniable craving for banana muffins the other morning and I had an idea to make them over-the-top delicious. I could taste them long before I even got into my kitchen to make them. Let me just tell you… they were every bit as good as I’d imagined. Each bite was absolutely glorious. A blend of sweet and salty, creamy and crunchy, ooey and gooey at its very best.

- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 3 overly ripened bananas
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup melted butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup walnuts
- 5 ounces caramel candies, unwrapped
- 1 tablespoon heavy cream

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare 12-cup muffin tins with nonstick baking spray or lightly coat with softened butter.
- Sift together dry ingredients of flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl. Set aside.
- Cream together bananas and sugar until smooth, about 3 minutes. Add eggs one at a time until creamy. Then, add melted butter and incorporate completely. Add vanilla.
- Slowly add in dry ingredients just until combined. Stir in walnuts. Be careful not to over mix.
- Fill each muffin tin three-fourths full. With the back of a spoon, make a small indention into the center of the batter.
- Prepare salted caramel by adding caramels and heavy cream to microwave safe bowl. Microwave for about 1 minute at 60%, until caramels just begin to melt. Stir until smooth. Sprinkle in sea salt and stir to combine.
- Spoon one teaspoon of salted caramel into the indention of the muffin batter.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 3 minutes before removing from muffin tins. Allow to cool further to prevent any issues with the hot melted caramel.
