It seems I was a little overzealous a couple of weeks ago in the amount of bananas I bought while grocery shopping. A few days later I had 3 very sad overripe bananas sitting on the kitchen counter and my middle son excitedly asked me if that meant we were going to have banana muffins (I suspect he planned the banana boycott for this very reason!)
I use the same basic recipe for my banana muffins as I do for my easy banana bread with the exception of the delicious crumble topping that I like to finish them off with…it gives them that extra special touch! I’m pretty sure that you’re going to love them!
Why I love this recipe
These muffins are just like you’d find at a bakery! They are perfectly sweet and the crumble topping takes them over the top! Plus they are ready in under 35 minutes so they are great for when that sweet tooth kicks in and you want muffins fast!
- ripe bananas
- baking soda
- all-purpose flour
For the Streusel Crumb Topping:
- brown sugar
Step by step
- Preheat oven and grease a muffin tin.
- Combine the muffin ingredients in a large bowl and mix until well blended.
- Spoon batter into muffin tins about 3/4 full. (Helpful hint: spray your spoon with nonstick spray before beginning to scoop the batter so it slides off the spoon easily!)
- In a small bowl mix the flour and brown sugar for the topping. Cut in butter with two knives until uniform.
- Spoon topping over muffins and press lightly into batter. Bake for 22-24 minutes until topping is golden brown.
I swear these are so moist and perfectly balanced, they can’t be beat! I hope you love them!
You can make these muffins without the crumb topping but trust me, once you taste the topping you’ll be hooked!
Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigeartor up to 5 days. Freeze up to one month, thaw overnight in the fridge. To thaw individual muffins to thaw one at a time, wrap each in plastic wrap before freezing.
Feel free to reduce the amount of sugar to make the muffins a little less sweet, the bananas themselves lend a ton of flavor and the taste will be just as good!
