Banana Crumb Muffins on Taste and Tell

Photos Updated June 2014

My muffin obsession continues!!  This is what you get when you have a few ripe bananas on hand and don’t want to make banana bread.  These banana muffins are the perfect breakfast treat. The first time I made these, I made them in a jumbo sized muffin tin, and the second time, I made them standard sized. I can’t decide which I like more (although the standard size has more crumb topping to muffin ratio!) All I know is that this is a perfect breakfast idea for those overripe bananas!!

These banana crumb muffins are packed with banana flavor, and I love how moist the bananas make them. You can’t go wrong when you are adding 3 whole bananas! And as much as I’m obsessed with muffins, I think I’m even more obsessed with crumb toppings. The butter and brown sugar make the perfect slightly crunchy topping for these muffins. I think they are better than any bakery muffin!!

So next time you find yourself with overripe bananas, give these banana crumb muffins a try. They would be the perfect treat for breakfast or for a snack. It doesn’t hurt that they only take 10 minutes to mix up, and then into the oven they go. Super easy, packed with flavor, these Banana Crumb Muffins are a muffin that you will totally fall in love with.

Filled with banana flavor and topped with a crunchy topping, these Banana Crumb Muffins are a great way to use up overripe bananas.
Serves: 6 jumbo muffins or 12 regular muffins
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 bananas, mashed
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • ⅓ cup butter, melted
Crumb Topping:
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon cold butter
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray a 6-tin jumbo muffin tin or 12-cup regular muffin tin with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, beat together the bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter. Stir the flour mixture into the banana mixture just until moistened. Spoon the batter into the prepared cups.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in the butter with a fork or a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over the muffins. Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes for jumbo muffins or 13-15 minutes for regular muffins, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

    I love to try new recipes rather than continue to make my easy banana crumb recipe all the time

    Just to let you know in the recipe it doesn’t say when to add the egg – which I completely forgot to do, taste pretty good anyway. Thanks
