So easy that I literally had them in the oven in under five minutes. The topping on these is so good you might be tempted to make these all “muffies”.Banana Crumb Muffins - Moist banana muffins with a little cinnamon and nutmeg and topped with tons and tons of crumb topping. the-girl-who-ate-everything.com

No mixer needed here. In fact, muffins are better when you mix by hand because you’re more likely not to overmix them which makes for a tough muffin.Banana Crumb Muffins - Moist banana muffins with a little cinnamon and nutmeg and topped with tons and tons of crumb topping. the-girl-who-ate-everything.com

 The original topping wasn’t enough for my liking so I doubled it. Try to sprinkle as much as you possibly can on top and then you might have a tad left over which I ate. My sisters and I used to eat brown sugar by the spoonful growing up. Weird, huh.

I’ve made these Banana Crumb Muffins a million times. This time when I made them I had just put them in the oven for a couple of minutes when I looked over to the egg that was supposed to be in the batter sitting on the counter. Ugh. Good news, they actually were fabulous without. Didn’t even miss it. So if someone you know has an egg allergy just know that these are great without any eggs.

Banana Crumb Muffins
 
Serves: 10 muffins
Ingredients
Batter:
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 bananas, mashed (about 1½ cups)
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • ⅓ cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
Topping:
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease 10 muffin cups, or line with muffin papers.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together 1½ cups flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat together bananas, sugar, egg, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and melted butter. Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture just until moistened. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
  3. For the crumb topping: In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, ¼ cup flour and ½ teaspoon cinnamon. Cut in 2 tablespoons butter until mixture resembles wet sand. You can use your hands too to incorporate the mixture. Sprinkle topping over muffins.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.

  1. Trying these today!! Pretty excited I found you!

  3. I had some very ripe bananas, so I turned to your blog to look for a banana bread/muffin recipe. I baked these, and they were amazing! Much better than the average banana muffin.

  4. I have made these before and can attest to how amazing they are!

  5. These are so easy to make! Troubleshooting question…when I took them out of the oven, there was sticky black crust surrounding tops of muffins…almost like something overflowed. Perhaps too much topping or butter? Too long in the oven? Otherwise, they are perfect 🙂

  6. @jenn,
    The topping would probably burn if it overflowed onto the muffin tin because of the sugar. Do you think that’s what it was?

  7. Thanks for the recipe. I am on a bit of a health kick these days and so I revamped your recipe a tad. I used half whole wheat flour half all purpose, and I substituted Taikoo sugar (naturally unrefined, non bleached sugar). They were delicious! I’m wondering if they freeze well?

  8. These were incredibly moist + the topping was perfect. I’ve been looking for a go-to banana muffin recipe. Great adaptation of the Allrecipes version — thanks for sharing!

  9. How many calories does each individual muffin have?

  10. I made these muffins they are delicious luv your recipes . Thank you

    So yummy! I found this receipe on Allrecipes and was tempted to try it, then came across your post
    They are probably the best banana muffins I have evr tasted. My husbands coworker stated that same comment. I was looking for a crumble topping, and this one is super easy and tastes delicious. For my muffins I generously sprinkled the topping and didn’t have enough for the remaining 4 muffins, quickly quipped up another batch of the crumble topping and was then able to give each muffin a generous topping.
    About to make another batch and will just double the crumble mixture.
    Awesome, awesome awesome recipe!
