Banana crumb muffins–a family fave

2012 March 20
by Emily Hill

This past Sunday I stayed home from church with a sick little George. It gave me some time to get a little breakfast ready for the rest of the family before they returned at noon. With some seriously ripe bananas on the counter, I went for one of my favorite muffin recipes: banana crumb muffins.

I served them with some belated St. Patrick’s Day waffles (waffle batter with green food coloring and green sugar sprinkles) and our ever favorite applesauce cups. George, with his super mad math skills, figured out everyone could eat two.

Love that kid! And totally love breakfast for lunch or dinner!

Delicious banana muffins with a sweet, crunchy topping.
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 bananas, mashed
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • ⅓ cup butter, melted
  • ⅓ cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 T flour
  • ⅛ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 T butter
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease 12 muffin cups or line with muffin papers.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat together bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter. Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture just until moistened. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and cinnamon. Cut in 1 tablespoon butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Sprinkle topping over muffins and gently press into batter.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.

    Those look yummy! I will have to give them a try.

    And of course George has super mad math skills. He has a brilliant mommy.

    I’m always looking for new recipes to use up ripe bananas. Thanks, Emily! Hope all is well. It’s been way too long since I’ve seen you! :)

    It has been WAY too long! And yes, I love a great way to use ripe bananas. I have a sour cream banana bread recipe I like too, but I only had 3 bananas, not the required 6. Guess I’ll have to buy some more and avoid eating them. ;)

    Oh crumbtastic pics! The only thing good about a sick kid is bonding time. Hope George is feeling better. And I’m happy I have another way to use my overripe Costco bananas. There’s always 3 too many in the bunch!

    I agree, Heidi. Costco bunches always have 2 to 3 too many bananas!

    I think I’m going to be trying these today. I have some overripe bananas that I was going to make into banana bread but these look too good to resist!
