A piece of bread

When I saw this recipe I knew I wanted to see if the Banana Crumb Muffins would taste as good as my  Chocolate Chip Banana Bread.

None of my family are huge breakfast eaters (at least in the morning) so I like to have something homemade that’s easy for them to grab.

One of the easiest ways to use over ripe bananas is in bread or in freezing for later use. If you see older bananas being sold at a great price at the grocery store, grab them, bring them home and freeze them!

So what was the verdict?

The muffins were a hit and we loved the streusel crumb topping. They also make a great snack for hungry teenagers!

If you’re feeling adventurous use an extra large muffin tin.

  1. This looks good. Ive tried your chocolate chip banana bread and it was an instant hit with my friends and family and they keep on asking me to bake it every time we see each other. I will definitely try this banana crumb muffin this weekend and cant wait to let my friends and family try them ๐Ÿ™‚ I just need to ask when you said beat the banana, eggs, vanilla etc does that mean i need to use an electric mixer? also can i use a cupcake an instead of a muffin pan? Just want to make sure. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for sharing your recipes ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi! Thanks for the questions (and I’m glad you liked the chocolate chip banana bread!) I did not mean an electric mixer because I know that muffin batter is not supposed to be a smooth like cake mixes. You really just want to combine until the ingredients are mixed in together but don’t over stir. What’s the difference between a cupcake and muffin pan? I use a 12-muffin (cupcake) pan.
