Banana Muffins with a Crumble Topping

Updated: Aug 1, 2021

Banana bread is always a hit in my house. My kids love it, family and friends request it and during the holiday seasons I will send loaves of banana bread as delicious, warm, sweet gifts. And they are always happily received. Sometimes, I want to change it up. Which is why I will turn the 'banana bread' into 'banana muffins'. They make a great change to normal breakfast items and also, they look so cute in a basket to send to friends. They will be happily received.

This recipe is so easy and comes together in 3 steps. The streusel topping, dry ingredients and the wet ingredients. Super easy and a great recipe for kids to try out too. This can be one of those beginner recipes for them. Something they can do for themselves (just so long as they can read).
