Banana Pecan Muffins

Last weekend, my hubby whipped these up for our Saturday morning breakfast and these were the best muffins ever! Yes….EVER!!! My new favorite!! The cinnamon, crunchy topping was the perfect compliment to the moist banana muffin!!

If you search this blog, you will find tons of muffin recipes. All of them have been tried and are family approved, but these…..are AMAZING!

I had had tons of extra bananas to use up, so we wanted something to include banana in them. Since muffins are my kids favorite, we went that route, and from there, the recipe evolved into perfection!

Whether making for breakfast, a snack, or if having company over…..these will be the perfect treat to whip up!
