Banana Muffins with Streussel Topping

"I'm a retired teacher, and not I stay busy planning and preparing weekly meals at our church," relates Elizabeth Viola. The Rogersville, Tennessee reader bakes these delightful muffins that are like miniature loaves of banana bread sprinkled with a crumb topping.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min.
  • Makes
    about 1-1/2 dozen


  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1-1/3 cups mashed ripe banana (2 to 3 medium)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • In a bowl, combine flour and sugar. In another bowl, beat the egg, yogurt and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until combined. Fold in bananas and nuts. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full.
  • Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over batter. Bake at 400° for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
Editor's Note
As a substitute for each cup of self-rising flour, place 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup.

    Very good and easy! Loved the streussel topping. I added chocolate chips to mine. Nice and moist.

    These are wonderful. I did add a 1/2 cup of quick oatmeal, just because I always put oatmeal in muffins. They are great.
