Banana Streusel Muffins

A great way to use up those brown bananas sitting the counter. :)


2 C flour
1 C sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 eggs
1 C sour cream
2 bananas, ripe with brown spots on the peels
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 C butter, melted

1/4 C sugar
3 Tb flour
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 Tb butter

1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

2. Into a large mixing bowl place 2 C flour, 1 C sugar, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp cinnamon and 1/4

3. Into a medium-sized mixing bowl place 2 eggs, 1 C sour cream, 2 ripe bananas and 1 tsp vanilla. Blend them together with a hand-held mixer. (Or use your stand mixer, if you so choose). Make sure all the bananas get mashed up and well incorporated. You don't want any big banana chunks. :) 

4. Pour 1/4 C melted butter into the bowl. Mix it just until combined.

5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix it with a wooden spoon, just until incorporated. You want to be careful not to over mix here. You don't want dry muffins. 

6. To mix the streusel topping, place 1/4 C sugar, 3 Tb flour and 1/4 tsp cinnamon in a small mixing bowl. Toss it together with a fork to combine. 

7. Add 2 Tb cold butter and cut it in to the mixture. It should be a bit clumpy.

8. Scoop the banana batter into muffin tins. Fill them about 2/3 full.

9. Sprinkle the streusel topping over the top of the batter. 10. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

11. Take the pan out of the oven and let it sit on your counter for 5 minutes. Remove the muffins from the pan and let the cool on a wire rack.

Time: 15 min. prep + 20-25 min. baking
Yield: 18 muffins
