Do I Need a Special Pan to Make Muffin Tops?

You do not need a special pan for this Banana Muffin Recipe. You can use your choice of a muffin pan or a sheet pan. If you decide to use a sheet pan, then you will need to at 1-2 tablespoons of the batter onto the sheet to bake.

Can I Add Nuts to These Banana Muffins?

It is very possible for you to add other things to this recipe like Nuts. However, these Banana muffins are so good by themselves and I always recommend trying them out before adding or taking anything out. But, you can add nuts like almonds, pecans, or walnuts.
