Banana Nut Muffins with a Chocolate Crumble Topping

Who doesn’t love muffins? I really don’t know why I don’t make them very often. I guess it’s because my family won’t eat them which leaves me to eat a dozen muffins all my own. Oh well, it’s a good thing that I love banana treats and these Banana Nut Muffins with an easy chocolate chip crumble topping are so delicious and easy to freeze!

I seriously ate my fair share and then I HAD to put them into the freezer to keep me from eating all of them over the weekend. I decided to leave the banana sliced instead of mashing them so that I would have big chunks of banana mixed in. And then, I made the crumble topping just to add a little extra texture to the sweetness.

Seriously, I loved these muffins and I know that you will too.

Breakfast is served! Make these Banana Nut Muffins and your family will smile at the breakfast table.

I made six in a jumbo muffin tin for some impressive bakery-style muffins. These are one cup muffins and you’ll get about 8 muffins from the mix. Of course the standard sized cupcake pans are perfectly good and if you’re making them for the entire family to enjoy, you’ll get a dozen for everyone to share.

Want to have perfect muffins? Here’s a few tips –

  • Use yogurt or sour cream and not milk in this recipe. A thicker batter will result in a rounded top with some crumble. A thinner batter will result in a muffin looking more like a cupcake.
  • Don’t use paper liners. Grease up the muffin pan with shortening and flour so you can enjoy ALL of the banana nut muffin.
  • You can skip the crumble topping and instead, dip the tops in melted butter and then dip them into cinnamon sugar.
  • They are best served warm.

Quick and easy Banana Nut Muffin Recipe. A great way to use up some old bananas.

Did your mom teach you to fill the empty cavities of the muffin tin with water? That’s really just an old wives tale and you don’t need to do that. There’s no problem with leaving the empty cavities empty if you just have enough batter for a few more muffins. If you’re pan warps because of this, you really just need to invest in a better pan.
