Banana Crumble Muffins

These are...amazing. And that's all I'm going to say. :)

What you need:

  • 1 1/2 c. flour
  • 2 mashed bananas(or 3 small bananas)
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1/3 c. butter

Add all the ingredients together and mix well.

Mix together 1/3 c. brown sugar, 1 T. flour, and 1 T. butter slightly softened.

Grease a muffin pan or fill with muffin liners. I used to be all about saving the money on the muffin liners and just greasing the pan but once I started using them I realized the difference they make!

Fill the muffin cups with the muffin batter.

Sprinkle the topping mixture on top. Each muffin will get a generous topping. :) Bake at 350F for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Yum. You can smell these baking form the other end of the house. Guaranteed to get the family out of bed on these cold snowy mornings. :D

These look delicious and I am going to make them soon. I have a question though. When you say that liners make a a difference, what kind of difference are you referring to?

Thanks for a great site!

They make my muffins lighter and fluffier for some reason. When I don’t use them it seems like the muffins or cupcakes are more dense.

I think I read somewhere that using paper liners gives the batter something to cling to as it rises while baking. A greased pan, while (hopefully) releasing the cooked muffin, doesn’t allow the batter to stick to it and the batter stays more dense as it cooks. Makes sense to me, anyway. :)

I’m not sure. Logically it sounds right but for some reason I’ve always had better luck using liners.

SOUNDS LIKE A GREAT RECIPE. I’M EXCITED TO TRY IT. I save all bananas that turn too brown to eat (even the really brown ones!). I throw the whole thing into the freezer. Then at Christmas I use them to make banana bread & ship it to my dad as a gift he simply loves. To defrost them I pop the entire banana, still in the peel, into the microwave for 15-30 seconds. Then I cut off the top and sqeeze out the goey center. (Don’t worry about the brown marks on them – that’s normal). Then mash them up and include in your recipe. It makes it super sweet from the super ripe bananas. Try it, you’ll love it. I love that its free, because I would have tossed these bananas out.

These look yummy! I will put it on my list to make soon.

I have a question. If I use Self-Rising Flour in place of All Purpose Flour, I would just leave out the baking powder, baking soda & salt, right? Also, was wondering if it really makes a difference which flour one uses.

I would guess that’s right but I’m not sure. I’ve never used self rising flour before. I think you’d just have to try it and see:)

You were right, Amazing! I substitued 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour and added 1/2 cup of flax meal. Thanks again!

Thank you! I’ve been staring at the 4 bananas on my counter and dreading the thought of making another loaf of banana bread.

I made them again this afternoon! So yummy!


12 Amanda Ortega August 17, 2012 at 2:56 pm

But they’ll be gone before breakfast =)

I made them today with bananas I got for free! I added some chopped walnuts to the batter and to the crumble topping. Yummy! Thanks for sharing the recipe!!

I have made these two weekends in a row, the whole family loves them. I substituted Stevia baking mix for the sugar and they were still amazing. Thanks for the recipe!
