Banana Crumble Muffins

These are worth making sure to buy extra bananas at the store and letting a few of them just get black. The recipe doesn’t make many (12) but I have been making small amounts, gobbling them up and then moving on to the next baked item.

Preheat the oven to 375.


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 bananas, mashed (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg


  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Use a regular muffin pan, the line with muffin papers.

With a whisk mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. In another bowl mash up the bananas, sugar, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and melted butter. Spoon equally into the cups.

In a small bowl mix together the topping ingredients with your fingers. It should look like sand. Sprinkle equally over the muffins.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
