Last week I found myself with a few extremely overripe bananas, just begging me to baking something with them. I finally gave in on Friday morning and made these wonderful banana crumb muffins. They taste like a treat in and of themselves with the sweet and crumbly topping. My boys were tickled pink when we had a fresh muffin and yogurt topped with strawberries for breakfast versus our usual cereal.

    These look SO good! And I have three bananas that will be perfectly ripe for this tomorrow- just in time to make them for a breakfast party! Thanks Emilie! Can’t wait to try them!

    This recipe looks great! I have a fondness for bake goods with banana and I can’t wait to try this. It looks so simple!! I agree, they would be sinful with a little butter.

    Omg! The photo on your main page drew me to the receipe. Great job! It looks delish. I’ve always beena huge fan of bananas. I can’t wait to try baking them with my daughter.

    I made these last night to serve for breakfast, they were wonderful. I had enough batter for 12 cupcakes and one mini cake. I made the mistake of putting them in a cupcake container to stay fresh but all it did was made the crumbly top sticky, they were still good but next time I will bake these and serve right away. Not something to bake and save for the next day.

    Darn it! I just threw away 3 bananas too. They sat a bit too long but this would have been great to make. They look delicious. I just might have to get more bananas and try this. I pinned also for others to try. Thanks!
