I tried this recipe today for the first time. I didn’t do the crumb topping so I added 1/4 c brown sugar to the batter and an 1/4 c of applesauce for moistness and a carton of blue berries. They were wonderful!! I had bananas going bad and a pkg of blueberries that were 5 days old and needed to be used. Great recipe for any over ripe fruit you need to use.

I have been using this recipe for several years and it is absolutely delicious! I ad a handful of chopped walnuts to the batter. Perfect for a fall day, and the smell is wonderful!

Excellent topping! Made 11 muffins with the blue scoop. I baked them at 350 for 17 minutes. I reduced the sugar to between 1/2 cup and 2/3 cup. I added nuts. This is a keeper! These are also good as mini muffins with chocolate chips in place of the topping. The kids like them that way.

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!

These muffins turned out great and I made everything according to the directions. I did a tsp of cinnamon and vanilla extract for some added flavour. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

What a light muffin! A flavorful light cupcake-like muffin topped with delicious crumble. This simple recipe delivered on a great crumb top. They looked pretty and kept nice for a few days. Great for a mid-morning snack. Made according to directions, using paper-lined cupcake wrappers. Tasty treat!

I have used this recipe for over 15 years as a go to for my over ripe bananas. They are delicious! I triple the cinnamon because my hubby loves cinnamon.
