Banana Crumb Muffins

Well, I had some extra ripe bananas that I needed to use fast! I always make banana nut bread, but this time around I was going to try something new. Once again from allrecipes, I found a recipe for banana crumb muffins. They looked so good, and what could go wrong with banana muffins with a crumb topping?


  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 large bananas, mashed
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 extra large egg
  • 1/3 cup (3 oz) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Topping:
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon (1/2 oz) cold unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats


  1. Preheat the oven to 375º. Prepare a 12 cup muffin tin.
  2. Place topping ingredients in the bowl a of a food processor and pulse until combined and the butter is in small pieces or place the dry ingredients in a bowl and cut in the butter. Set aside
  3. In a large bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl stir together the mashed bananas, sugar, egg, butter, and vanilla. Add the banana mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until combined. Do not over mix. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the batter. Bake for 20 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes in the pan then remove to a wire rack to cool.

My hubby loved these! They were moist and the topping was great! Definitely going into my recipe box and I’d have to rate this a 9/10.

Man this recipe thing has been pretty productive so far! Not a bad recipe yet!!
