Banana Crumb Muffins…*
… simply the best banana muffin out there

If you have a few minutes and a handful of ripe bananas, look no further. This is the perfect way to turn those speckled bananas into something fabulous—you won’t be disappointed! I’ve had my share of banana breads and muffins but nothing compares to these. The muffins are so moist, delicate and flavorful. The cinnamon-sugar crumble adds another element of texture that really makes this recipe extraordinary. What I love most about this recipe is that it is so simple, yet you can dress it up with a handful of chopped walnuts, or a drizzle of cinnamon icing. These are definitely the easiest banana muffins I have ever made, and by far the most delicious! Happy baking :)

The Instructions…*
First, make the Muffin Mix:
(1) Preheat oven to 375 °F and lightly grease 10 muffin cups, or line with muffin papers
(2) In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; set aside
(3) Using an electric mixer, beat together bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter in another bowl
(4) Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture just until moistened
(5) Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups
Next, make the Crumb Topping:
(1) In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and cinnamon
(2) Cut in 1 tablespoon butter until mixture becomes crumbly
(3) Sprinkle topping over muffins
(4) Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean
So moist and delicious, but it’s the crumb topping that really makes these muffins stand out.
Gone in 60 seconds. :)
