Banana Crumb Muffins

The Picky Apple won’t eat bananas by themselves, but he WILL eat banana muffins.  Although we have our tried and true Banana Crunch Muffin recipe, I wanted to find another banana bread or muffin recipe for a little banana variety.  We’ve had lots of extra ripe bananas around here lately as they are one of the few foods The Littlest Apple (aka The EXTREMELY Picky Apple) will eat.  I found this recipe on allrecipes.com, with 5 stars and 2,615 reviews.  With that many great reviews, I had high hopes for these muffins.  We weren’t disappointed.  The Picky Apple agreed that these are definitely 5 star muffins and wants to add them to our regular muffin rotation.  High praise indeed!  His only complaint was that the recipe only made 10 muffins!

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 bananas, mashed
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). 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. 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.
