Banana Crumb Muffins

I have mentioned this before but I HATE banana’s… like passionately hate them, but I know some of you love them.  So for my banana loving peeps… here you go. 

A new muffin love…

Due to unforeseen circumstances I found myself with 4 bananas that were starting to turn.  You have to understand bananas are never in my kitchen so when they started to go bad I knew I need to use them quickly.  

Muffins seemed like a quick, easy and yummy option… so Banana Crumb Muffins were made. 

All about the crumb…

My perfect muffin always has a crumb topping… ALWAYS!  My Pumpkin Crumb Muffins are some of my fave so I decided to go with the same idea for these.   It is buttery, sweet, and  bit crunchy making for a perfect crumb IMO.

For some added fun to the topping you could throw in some chopped pecans or walnuts or even some oats.  There are so many options … have fun with it!
