Moist Carrot Banana Walnut Cupcake ~ 胡萝卜香蕉核桃杯子蛋糕

 

These hearty cupcakes are packed with grated carrots, crunchy walnuts and soft mashed bananas.  They are full of texture, taste like carrot cake but yummier because of the addition of bananas which makes them soft and moist. These cuppies are made with oil instead of butter which is more 'heart-healthy' and is an easy grab-and-go at breakfast.
