Banana Muffins are moist with a little cinnamon and nutmeg and topped with tons and tons of crumb topping. This is the best homemade banana muffins recipe perfect for healthy breakfast!
These moist Banana Muffins are another fabulous recipe to make with your overripe bananas.
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”.
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.
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.
As with banana bread or any other muffin, these are almost better the second day because the banana flavor starts soaking in making them extra moist.
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.
HOW TO MASH BANANAS
You can mash bananas two ways:
- Use a fork to mash small pieces of bananas until soft.
- Add chunks of banana to a stand mixer with the paddle attachment and let it beat away.
HOW TO FREEZE BANANA MUFFINS
To freeze these banana muffins, let them cool completely. Next, wrap them in plastic wrap and then freeze them in a large Ziploc bag. To eat them, thaw on the counter at room temperature.
