Banana-carrot-walnut muffin a la Country Living

I have found this muffin recipe in the November 2011 issue of Country Living magazine, which is one of my favourite English magazines. I usual get one of my English colleagues to bring me the latest issue, when she is coming to Denmark in connection with work, as foreign language magazines are more expensive to buy in Denmark compared to else where in Europe.

However, I decide to make these muffins, as I had some bananas in my little kitchen, which almost over-riped. And afterwards I noticed, that they does not contain any milk products, which means, that they perfect for picnic rows, as one of my rowing friends is sufferings from lactose intolerance.
