Whole Wheat Banana Streusel Muffins


I have so many wonderful uses for RIPE (barely hanging on :)) bananas! Here is another I was excited to try when I saw the recipe. Streusel is so tasty. These muffins are sweet and are LOADED with bananas. This recipe was adapted from Bakes in Slippers; I substituted whole wheat flour for most of the all-purpose flour. We ate them warm from the oven and they were great.

Yield: Makes 12 muffins

For the Streusel Topping:

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  1. Combine all ingredients into a bowl, cutting up butter with a pastry cutter, fork, or your hands. Set aside.

For the Banana Muffins:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour, or white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp coarse salt
  • 4 super-ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 375. Line muffin tins with liners or spray with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Mash bananas, then add oil, egg, and vanilla. Add banana mixture to dry ingredients and stir until combined (do not over mix).
  3. Fill muffin tins about 3/4 full with muffin batter, and sprinkle about 1 heaping tablespoon of streusel topping on each muffin.
  4. Bake for 15-18 minutes (perfect after 18 minutes in my convection oven), or until a toothpick comes out clean in middle of the muffin. Depending on your oven, muffins could take up to 20 minutes.
  5. Let cool in muffin tins for 15 minutes.
  6. Cool on cooling rack or serve warm.

  3. As much as I love muffins and bananas, what I like most about these is the streusel topping. Like bacon, streusel makes everything taste better.
