Banana Crumb Muffins

Shellie made these muffins for us when she was visiting us over the summer and we all loved them - even Joe who hates both bananas and muffins! I had a bunch of bananas that were about to go bad so I requested the recipe of these amazing muffins from Shell and I'd love to share it with everyone! Seriously....make these soon.

  • 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
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease 10 muffin cups, or line with muffin papers.
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.
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.
Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.

Shellie's tips

Don't use muffin paper liners. waste of time. and in my opinion waste of muffin. just spray pam into muffin pan and they will come right out.

Also if you have an ice cream scoop with a pushy button that releases the ice cream I use that to fill the muffins. don't get a complete scoop or it will over run. like a 3/4 scoop is perfect.

This recipe makes about 12. but you are probably want to double or triple it cause its that good.
