Banana Muffins

A Friday morning, snow falling out your window, a steaming cup of coffee in front of you. What’s missing from this picture?


These soft, comforting banana muffins!

Muffins make such a great breakfast, snack or dessert. These muffins are just the right amount of sweet and the crunchy top compliments that soft inside perfectly.


It is hard to eat just one!



Preheat oven to 400*. Line and grease 12 muffin liners in a muffin pan.

Start with:

3/4 c. whole wheat flour
3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt

Mix together in a bowl.


2 ripe bananas
1/3 c. applesauce
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 egg
1/3 c. melted butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Mix together and then add to dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Scoop batter into muffin liners, about 3/4 full.

Crumb topping:

1/3 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. oats (I used old fashioned)
1/3 c. chopped pecans
1 heaping Tbsp. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2.5 Tbsp. butter, cubed

Combine ingredients in a bowl, and using the back of a fork or a pastry blender, mix the ingredients until “crumby.” Spoon crumb topping onto each muffin.

Bake in preheated oven for 18-20 minutes.
