Banana Muffins with Cinnamon Crumb Topping

I’ve never been a big fan of banana muffins or breads, but I always seem to have a banana or two turning brown on my table. So I did a little Swagbucks searching and found this recipe at allrecipe. It adds a cinnamon sugar topping. I mean really, how can you go wrong adding cinnamon and sugar? I did my usual substituting using whole wheat flour and sucanat.

You’ll need:

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt 
3 bananas mashed
3/4 cup sucanat/sugar
1 large egg lightly beaten
1/3 cup butter melted
1/3 cup brown sugar packed
2 tablespoons flour
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter

In a large bowl combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

In another bowl mash (I use a potato masher) your bananas with sugar, eggs and melted butter.

Combine all together in one bowl.


Spoon into paper lined or lightly sprayed with oil cupcake pan.

In a small bowl mix brown sugar, flour and butter with a fork until crumbly.


Top your muffins evenly. Bake in a 375 F oven for 18 – 20 minutes.

Delicious warm from the oven 🙂

    This recipe sounds so good…especially with the cinnamon sugar on the top. I always have a few brown bananas I end up throwing out so this would be the perfect recipe to add them to.
