1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sliced nuts, almonds or your choice

In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter. Add the sugar and honey, and beat till creamy and light. Add the eggs, one at a time; then thoroughly mix in the bananas.
In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt and blend thoroughly with a whisk. Adding flour mixture about 1/3 at a time, blend it thoroughly into batter. Fold in nuts.
Coat a 12-muffin tin with pan spray or line it with cupcake papers; spoon batter into muffin tin, filling nearly to the top. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven until fully risen and golden brown, about 30 minutes.
