Banana Crumb Muffins Recipe

Here’s a yummy recipe for the next time you have overripe bananas! This is one of our favorites for breakfast or snack time.


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 bananas, mashed

3/4 cup white sugar

1 egg, lightly beaten

1/3 cup butter, melted

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon butter


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease 12 muffin cups, or line with muffin papers.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat together bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter. Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture just until moistened. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and cinnamon. Cut in 1 tablespoon butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Sprinkle topping over muffins.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.

  1. Ooh, the crumb part is something we’ve never tried. And I was just about to make a batch of banana chocolate chip bread. Maybe I’ll do mine and yours! Thanks for the tip.

  2. It must be the rain today b/c I made up a batch of banana bread today, too…ate it for lunch. yum, yum.

  3. Mmm, we need to add the crumb part too! Sounds yummy.

    I went ahead and answered your question on my blog in case anyone else was curious. Matt really enjoyed the race and is already looking for another one, so it must not have been too bad! Hope the info. helps!

    Maybe I should start too, so I could eat more banana crumb muffins.

  4. This recipe looks great. I’ve got just the bananas for them. I read somewhere that if you put your bananas in the fridge when they begin to overripen, they’ll stop. The skin will darken but the fruit won’t change (I’m guessing that’s if you don’t leave them in there for like a year). I’ll try this tomorrow.
