Banana Streusel Muffins

Randi of I Have To Say, talked about this recipe that's originally from Taste of Home.  She commented that you shouldn't double the recipe, because it makes 18 wonderful muffins.  I concur; and if you are skimpy with your batter, you could get 24 muffins from this.  I've changed the original recipe up a bit, not the ingredients, but the process.

Banana Streusel Muffins


Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.  Grease muffin cups, or use paper liners.  (I just sprayed a squirt of Pam in each cup, and wiped it with a paper towel.


In a small bowl mix dry ingredients, then cut in butter.  This is the hardest part of the entire process.


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 3 medium or 2 large ripe bananas, sliced thinly

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. In a medium bowl, mix eggs, sour cream, butter and bananas, well; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

Fill muffin cups, sprinkle streusel mix over muffins.  Bake for 25 minutes.  Cool on rack for 5 minutes.  Remove muffins from pans and enjoy.
