Banana Muffins

I love muffins, and when my bananas go bad, which is all the time-I am usually making banana bread, but to change it up, I found a banana muffin recipe I like. You can find the original recipe and my inspiration here I changed a few things when I made them tonight. I really like them and I made mini-muffins instead. Kevin ate a nice hot one right out of the oven and said it was wonderful! So that means it was a success.

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1-2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 bananas, mashed
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup butter, melted, I will sometimes substitute applesauce if I am feeling healthy!

1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon-I use more like 2-3 teaspoons, I love cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter

Preheat oven to 375 (350 for minis) degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease 10 muffin cups, or line with muffin papers (I ended up with 42 VERY LARGE minis...I would put less mixture in next time to make them a more normal size).

In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. In another bowl, beat together bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter. Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture just until moistened. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.

In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and cinnamon. Cut in 1 tablespoon butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Sprinkle topping over muffins.

Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes (more like 10-15 for minis), until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.

Yummy!! My cute little mini muffins!
