Would you believe me if I told you that my 4 year old ate six of these muffins? Yep six. He is a growing boy for sure and when he hits those growth spurts there is no stopping him! I can’t blame him though because these muffins really are that good. They are great to make in big batches to freeze for quick a breakfast.

Banana Bread Muffin Mixture

Add all your dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix well together. Your wet ingredients you want to add to a stand mixer or a large bowl you can whisk or use a hand mixer with. Once both are mixed separately just add the dry to the wet and keep on mixing.

I feel like we always have leftover bananas. Even though we all love bananas and eat them. Sometimes a few still slip through the cracks and turn brown. I’ve made so many different muffins using bananas and so far these have to be my favorite. Plus I think it’s safe to say they are my sons favorite also 😉

Now it’s time to fill your muffin tin with your dough and next up, time to top with the good stuff!

Banana Bread Muffins with topping

By good stuff you should know that I mean butter and sugar. I used a fork and mixed up my crumb topping and place a spoonful (or more) on each muffin. You are ready to bake and then enjoy this simple recipe.

I usually end up making my muffins the night before because I have toddlers and well they don’t like waiting for food. I actually made these a few mornings ago again for the boys and they are so easy to put together and bake I didn’t have to worry about getting up early or making the night before. Hope you enjoy!

    This recipe that was shared from another site is very similar to a recipe I remade 2 days ago which came from another site. It’s our favorite banana muffin recipe.

    I’m baking these now. Thanks for the recipe, much easier to follow than some of the others that I have found. I used brown sugar instead of white sugar, so fingers crossed they turn out okay.

    Just made these muffins this morning. They turned out delicious!


    Here’s my result of my very first time cooking muffins. I noticed I was missing a step, and it was putting the brown sugar on top. I was going to post a pic, but doing it this way, it won’t let me. The butter was added in the mix instead of on top… Ouppsssss They are excellent.
