Banana Crumb Muffins
This is a very basic recipe for banana muffins that is absolutely fantastic. If you enjoy banana bread you will love this recipe. The ripe bananas make this muffin ultra moist and delicious. The best part about these muffins is the streusel, it goes perfect with banana. If you want to add something extra to the recipes, you could throw in some nuts or chocolate chips (I added both!). If you are looking for an amazing tasting banana cinnamon muffin recipe, give this one a try. Enjoy!
1 ½ cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 ripe bananas (mashed)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg (lightly beaten)
1/3 cup butter (melted)
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional, I added)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional, I added)
Cinnamon crumb topping
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter
Preheat oven to 375° F and line 12 muffins cups. In a large bowl sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together. In a separate bowl combine bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter. Stir banana mixture into the flour mixture just until moist and combined. Do not over mix. Spoon batter into prepared muffins cups.
In a separate bowl mix brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in 1 tablespoon of butter with two butter knives until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle streusel generously over muffins before baking.
Place muffins in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. I took mine out at 17 minutes and the were moist and delicious.
