Banana Crumb Muffins

I've been a very bad blogger lately, but I have an excuse... I'm pregnant!!! :) I'll be 18 weeks on Thursday, and I've been very, very tired for the last few months and I haven't been super motivated, thus the lazy posting :s

Anyways, I'm feeling much better and have finally had a burst of energy and hopefully I'll be able to post a little more often! :)

I made these little babies for doughnut day at work a few weeks ago, and they went quick! I love the crumble on top... they were absolutely delish and something I'll definitely be making again in the future!

This recipe makes 12 muffins.

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 ripe bananas (mashed)
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter (melted)
1 large egg (at room temp.)
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp all purpose flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp butter (diced)

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Sift together the flour, baking powder,baking soda and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl using a mixer or hand-mixer, mix together the mashed bananas, sugar, melted butter and egg.  Slowly add in the dry ingredients until fully combined.

Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners and scoop the batter evenly among the liners.

In a bowl mix together the brown sugar, all purpose flour and ground cinnnamon. Add in the cold diced butter and use a fork to cut the butter into the mixture.

Sprinkle some of the topping on each muffin, then bake for 18 - 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
