Banana Crumb Muffins

Posted

Every once in a while I will have a few, overripe bananas left at the end of a week. I typically make banana bread, but recently tried these banana crumb muffins instead, and I may stick with the muffins from now on!

These banana crumb muffins are a much lighter alternative to banana bread, but still have all the same delicious flavors. The cinnamon crunch of the crumb topping complements the muffin perfectly. Whether it’s with coffee in the morning or after dinner in the evening, these muffins can be enjoyed any time.

Ingredients

Topping

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons butter, room temperature

Muffins

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 large, ripe bananas, mashed
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ⅓ cup butter or margarine, melted

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Prepare the topping in a medium bowl by first adding the flour, sugar, and cinnamon, and then mixing in the butter with a fork until combined and crumbly. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt). In another bowl, mash the bananas and add in the sugar, egg, and melted butter. Be sure to mix well.

Add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture and stir until just combined.

Grease a muffin tin and fill each cup about two-thirds full with batter.

Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the muffin batter and bake for 18-20 minutes.

    FOUR thumbs up for this recipe! I baked some today. Just added a little Silk vanilla almond to the batter as I usually do when I bake cakes, muffins, etc. They came out perfect and delicious.Topped with some whipped cream and my husband ate two and said "Make these again". Added the recipe to my collection. Thanks Charlotte Schwartz!
