Banana Muffins

Posted on

Am I the only person that has a hard time passing up the rotting bananas at the grocery store? They practically give them away and as I look at them my mind conjures up all the delicious things they could become. It was after one such grocery trip that I came home with a bag of bananas that had not been yellow for some time. A loaf of banana bread and a couple dozen banana muffins later there was nary a browned banana in sight. And as always, the goal of a heavenly smelling house had been accomplished. I’ve already shared my banana bread recipe with you so today’s little treat is banana muffins. They’re pretty much the same thing, except they come in your own individualized little package and they have a cute little crumb topping.

Banana Muffins


  •             1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  •             1 teaspoon baking soda
  •             1 teaspoon baking powder
  •             1 teaspoon cinnamon
  •             ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  •             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

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare muffin tin (I get 12 muffins from this recipe). In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.

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. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Sprinkle topping over muffins.

Bake in preheated oven for about 18 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.

I stress-bake, a lot. When I'm not doing that I'm an Episcopal priest, wife, and mom. Have a recipe that just might lower my blood pressure or at least make my house smell good? I'd love to try it!
