Only one muffin was left by the time the box was moved to the lunchroom today, so lucky me still managed to grab a sweet treat on this drizzling, drowsy afternoon that is as far from summer as you can possibly get in July. Whoever it is that keeps on bringing in goodies from Tim Hortons, you will make some of my days just that much better. The one left today was a Banana Nut Muffin. The muffin was still perfectly moist, slightly buttery, and incredibly soft even on the edges. However, the moisture has made the muffin top soft and slightly mushy as well. I like a crisp top but since it is day-old, I cannot really complain. I am sure when it was still fresh out of the oven, it was nice and crisp. The banana aroma was light and thus, the muffin was not too sweet. The chopped walnuts were plentiful, embedded in the muffin and were wonderfully crunchy, providing a nice contrast to the otherwise soft texture. This muffin was nowhere near as sweet as most banana breads get so for someone looking for a lighter but still sweet treat, this muffin would certainly do the trick!
