Banana Cinnamon Muffins

This is just a little muffin. Nothing fancy. It has some bananas and some cinnamon. Actually, for the common person, probably a lot of cinnamon.

I had extra bananas because as much as I like bananas I never seem to finish them. Typically I freeze the bananas and make a banana cinnamon smoothie. I guess I was feeling adventurous.

Anyway within an hour, I made these and ate them with a cup of coffee. Simple times are good times. 🙂

Banana Cinnamon Muffins:

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (more or less)
  • 3 bananas, mashed
  • 2/3 cup white sugar (I use less sugar because ripe bananas are plenty sweet for me)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup canola oil (I know butter has more flavor but I was trying to cut down on fat)

For the streusel:

  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix all of the dry ingredients (don’t include sugar). In a separate bowl, beat all of the wet ingredients (including sugar) with either a mixer or wooden spoon (I use a wooden spoon because it’s old-fashioned and I feel like I get a workout). In another bowl, combine the streusel ingredients until it becomes coarse crumbs…like cornmeal. Scoop the batter into a muffin pan, top with streusel mixture and bake for about 18- 20 minutes.

I’m pretty sure you can’t mess these up….
