Banana Crumb Muffins

A moist, banana muffin sprinkled with a cinnamon crumb topping that truly makes these stand apart from the ordinary!!

Having three kids, my house ALWAYS has bananas either on the counter or in the freezer. My kids go in phases. Some weeks, they act like monkey’s and plow through them all, whereas other weeks, they refuse to eat even one. Nonetheless, I can always count on having a few in my freezer for those days I feel like making bread, muffins, cake, etc.

Last week, I was on a cleaning kick and when I was reorganizing my freezer, I found wayyyyyy too many bananas. I think I counted at least 12. To use some of them up, I made these banana crumb muffins! My youngest kiddo, 6 years old, helped me whip them up, and all 3 kids enjoyed them as their afternoon snack! I even sent some to work with my hubby and the consensus was…. “huge hit”.

The muffins themselves are moist and flavorful, but the crumb topping really brings these to a new level. The cinnamon flavor mixed with the banana is a match made in Heaven.

Whether enjoyed as a breakfast treat, paired with coffee, or as a snack throughout your day….you’ll love these!!
