Banana Crumble Muffins Recipe

These are…amazing. Please make them! I’ve mentioned a few times that our family previously owned a coffee shop and I used to bake these muffins to serve. They were always a huge hit! I have a feeling they will be just as popular in your home as well.

Banana Crumble Muffins Recipe

What you need:

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 mashed bananas(or 3 small bananas)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter

Add all the ingredients together and mix well.

Mix together 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1 Tablespoon flour, and 1 Tablespoon 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.

  1. 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!

      1. 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. 🙂

  2. 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.

  3. Hi,
    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.
    Thanks!

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

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

  7. 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!!

  8. Tried this recipe this morning. BEST…….MUFFINS……..EVER!!!! I have found my new favorite recipe. Thanks for sharing and I think I’ll Pin It too 🙂

  9. 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!

  10. Hi, those muffins are unbelievably goooddd. I am French, came back to France after a few years in Boston and Ottawa. I’ve discovered your website a while ago.

  11. Made these yesterday and doubled the batch. They are amazing! Makes the perfect banana bread with a divine topping. Thanks for the amaziing recipe!

  12. Can these muffin be frozen? Also can I make Banana Bread from this recipe by doing the same thing, but putting it into a loaf pan instead?

    1. Yes, these muffins can be frozen after they are baked. And you can make bread with this recipe instead. I’m not sure what the loaf size or cooking time would be though since I haven’t done that with this particular recipe.

  13. 5 stars
    Best muffin recipe! I made a dozen and it was gone in 2 days…and there’s just 2 of us. The crumble topping made it so decadent.
