Reviews for Banana Crumb Muffins
"The topping is what makes these banana muffins stand out. The only thing I did differently with the recipe was push the crumb topping slightly into the batter. These are delicious!"
"These are wonderful banana muffins! I followed the ingredients and instructions exactly. Baked them as indicated at 375 degrees for 20 minutes and they came out perfectly. They were moist, had great banana flavor and we loved the crumb topping. This recipe will be my go-to banana muffin recipe from now on!"
