Banana Crumb Muffins

I guess Ive been a muffin kick this past week. Ive been wanting to make banana bread for awhile so when I stumbled upon this recipe on The Girl Who Ate Everything I knew I had to try it. I made a few slight changes but I thought they turned out great. I love muffins with a crumb topping.

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 bananas, mashed
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat together bananas, sugar, egg, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and applesauce. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Spoon batter into muffin cups.

Mix together brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in 1 tablespoon butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Sprinkle topping over muffins. Bake for 14 to 18 minutes.

We tried these yummy muffins this weekend and LOVED them. I did cheat and add a little oil, they were moist and very delicious!

We had these this morning. So good! I didn't have applesauce so I did oil as well. I liked that they came out of the pan and didn't stick (I didn't have papers). I filled the pan too full and they made really yummy, almost crispy muffin tops that ran over the edges - so good!
