  • Ingredients:
    • For the cinnamon crumb topping:
      • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
      • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
      • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
      • 1 tablespoon salted butter, melted
    • For the banana muffins:
      • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
      • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
      • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
      • 2 medium, very ripe bananas
      • 1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter, melted
      • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
      • 1 egg
      • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
      • 1/2 cup whole milk

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the crumb topping:
    • In a small bowl, combine light brown sugar, cinnamon and flour. Add the melted butter and stir until the mixture forms crumbs. Place in the refrigerator while you prepare the muffin batter.
  2. Prepare the muffin batter:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a muffin tin with 6 large paper cups.
    • In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and cinnamon.
    • In a medium bowl, mash the bananas until smooth with minimal chunks. Add the melted butter, granulated sugar, egg, vanilla extract and milk. Whisk until well combined.
    • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix gently until well combined. Avoid overmixing to keep the muffins light and fluffy.
  3. Assemble and bake:
    • Divide the batter evenly among the 6 muffin cups, filling each lightly on top.
    • Remove the bread crumb topping from the refrigerator. Use a fork or your fingers to break it into pea-sized pieces. Sprinkle generously over each muffin.
    • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
    • Let the muffins cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Enjoy these delicious bakery-style banana muffins with a cinnamon crumb topping, a perfect blend of flavors and textures that will delight your taste buds!
