Banana Bread Muffins with Crumb Topping


I love me some crumb topping and I always have bananas in my freezer so… the perfect recipe is here! These are SO good! The perfect breakfast or snack packed with flavor, carbs and sugar! 

I needed a recipe not only to use up the bananas in my freezer, but one that I could use a jumbo size egg. Why they even sell those at the store RIGHT NEXT to the large ones is beyond me. But yes, I accidentally bought jumbo eggs. They are perfect for scrambling eggs for breakfast. Baking with them is another story. 2 jumbo eggs is more like 3 large ones. I used 1 jumbo in this recipe and it was perfect! Now that doesn’t mean you have to run to the store and get jumbo eggs. You might just need to use the whites of an additional egg for this recipe.

Ok… enough about jumbo eggs, let’s get to baking!

What you will need:

Cupcake tin lined with liners

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup melted butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 Egg
3 bananas, mashed

For the Crumb Topping:

2 tablespoons flour
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Set aside. In another bowl, beat melted butter and sugar. Beat in egg until combined. Beat in mashed bananas until everything is nice and smooth and blended. Slowly beat in flour mixture until just combined.

Pour batter into prepared pan, just above halfway full. Then, make the topping. In a bowl, mix all ingredients with your fingers until it resembles sand or coarse crumbs, pinching the butter with your fingertips. Evenly distribute on the tops of the cupcakes. Bake for 14-15 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack before digging in.

Store at room temperature in an airtight container. Enjoy!
