Hummingbird Muffins :)

One of my friends made Hummingbird cupcakes once. We traded baked goods, and caught up on gossip. Since I'm kind of notorious for making a batch of muffins BECAUSE I WANT A SINGLE MUFFIN, I made hummingbird muffins to use up my remaining banana.
I can't help but think her incarnation was superior though... Mostly because of the high sugar content.
However, I received very positive reactions to these muffins. One of my friends said he ate the entire bag the night I gave him the muffins. Even though he only ate the muffin top while I was there haha. I'm fairly certain he's manorexic.

A can of chunked pineapple
1 banana
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup butter, melted
2 oz chopped walnuts

Mash banana with sugar, butter, egg. Add in pineapple when well mixed. In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients (Not the walnuts). When well mixed, slowly fold into the wet mixture. Stir as few times as possible. After you've mixed in all the flour, add in the walnuts, and then allow to sit for 5 minutes.
Spoon into greased muffin cups. Bake for 17 minutes at 350 degrees.
