Banana Muffins

Banana Muffins with a crunch stresuel topping are a delicious way to start your morning. You will be re-heating these mid-morning just for another taste!


We eat a lot of bananas in our house. We eat them plain, slathered in peanut butter or in a smoothie. When I go to the grocery store and throw all the bananas in the cart it probably looks like we raise monkeys. lol! So, when I have a craving for banana bread or muffins I usually don’t  make anything right away because our bananas aren’t around long enough to ripen. So, I buy bananas that I purposely want to turn brown so I can bake with them 


This recipe can be used for banana bread or muffins. I send a lot of food with my husband to work so he can share with his co-workers and muffins are easier to share than a loaf of bread.


The streusel topping on these muffins is soooo good! It definitely takes the muffin up a notch. You could use the recipe for the stresuel topping on any of your favorite muffin flavors.


I also have a recipe for  pumpkin muffins on the blog if you want to try that.
