Banana Nut Muffins with Chinese Five Spice
So what is Chinese Five Spice? The common ingredients are star anise, cloves, Chinese cinnamon, Sichuan pepper, and fennel. But don’t let that scare you, it’s really aromatic and delish! Mostly used in cooking recipes, I’ve used it a few times for baking to give it that hint of something special. So, where do you find Chinese Five Spice? Most grocery stores carry it in the spice section. And, most importantly, don’t throw away your overripe bananas because they are great for baking!
Sprinkle the tops of the Banana Nut Muffins with chopped walnuts and cinnamon sugar. So yummy!
Don’t throw away those overripe bananas! They’re the best for making delicious sweets like these super easy Banana Nut Muffins with Chinese Five Spice.
