If I’m talking about “a few of my favorite things”, I certainly cannot forget my fix of banana bread desserts! I’ve mentioned before that my favorite type of sweets are muffins and coffee cakes; they are always the tasters I take the most of at Trader Joe’s! Unfortunately this week marked the end of winter break, so I decided to bake some banana muffins for advisory to help ease back into the school routine. Although I do enjoy time off for baking, relaxing, and morning exercises, I actually do find comfort in resuming the regular regime. But , I do wish that I could have more time to bake sweets like these incredible banana crumble muffins! I first tried this recipe as a banana bread loaf and I was so amazed to find how fantastic it tasted, I made the recipe in muffin form! The muffins were sweet, light, and super moist–something I love about banana baked goods because although the cake tastes so buttery, it’s really not! For an extra special touch, I added a crumb/streusel topping to about half of the muffins (I would’ve added banana chips too, but I didn’t have any on hand). Enjoy!!!…I know I certainly did!

***NOTE: In order for the muffins to look like gorgeous bakery-style goods, fill the muffin cups to the very top! (I regret not filling them more!)

these muffins look beautifully and nicely done, I love the crumbs on top of them ^^
Mmm! I haven’t made banana desserts or breads at all! These look delicious!
How fun! Is the muffin soft, like a bread pudnidg? My kids will love this recipe they can make on their own (and, as Beth F pointed out, I won’t be tempted by a full batch of 2 dozen muffins!)
I love your idea of adding the crumbs on top! will have to try next time I make my banana muffins :-)
Thanks! It’s also great to a banana chip on top! It bakes like a slice of a banana
We love banana bread here! I usually bake chocolate chips into half of the loaf. If I made muffins I wouldn’t be able to stay out of them. :)
Yum! My sister always makes me chocolate chips in it for her!
