Food Love : Banana Crumb Muffins!

I meant to post this recipe for my last Etsy Bloggers Carnival but since I was x-mas slammed, I didn't get a chance to post it until now! These are the most delicious banana muffins ever - great for breakfast or any time really. I stole the recipe from!

What you'll need:

1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt

3 mashed bananas
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup melted butter

optional: nuts

optional: Delicious crumb topping (highly recommended)

1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespons flour
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon of butter

(I don't really go by this to do the crumb topping, I just pinch and eye ball it!)

The specifics:

Bake in preheated oven at 375 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes, ready when toothpick comes out clean.

Makes 10 big, fluffy, and delicious muffins.

(Don't try to get 12 out of the batter, you'll end up with smaller, less fluffy and delicious muffins - for more just double the recipe!)

Here's how to make the most delicious muffins ever:

1. Gather above ingredients and vintage Pyrex since its so cute and awesome for baking.

2. Sift dry ingredients, melt butter, lightly beat the egg. Put your banana, sugar, egg, & butter in the same bowl.

3. Mash together bananas, sugar, butter, & egg. I like to use a potato masher, works great! Keep mashing until your ingredients are well blended and banana pieces are roughly the size of peas.

4. Add banana mush to your dry ingredients and stir.

5. Optional Crumb Topping: gather together ingredients & use pastry cutter to blend topping.

6. Fill baking cups with batter almost to the top, or roughly 3/4 full. Sprinkle with Crumb Topping and bake! I like to use an ice cream scoop, makes things super easy!

7. Bake 18 to 20 minutes. Cool. Then eat majorly delicious muffins!
