Method

40 mins
 
Pre-heat the oven to 180°c and line a muffin tray with paper cups.
In a large bowl, mash the bananas with the melted butter. (I use my hand-held blender)
Add the eggs, vanilla and sugar and mix well.
Sift in the dry ingredients and fold in. Make sure everything is incorporated well.
Fold in the chopped pecans.
Fill the paper cups 3/4 with the muffin batter and place a few extra pecans on top (if desired).
Bake for 25-30 minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
Allow to cool for 5 minutes in the tray before removing and allowing to cool completely on a wire rack.
