Streusel Banana Muffins


I have more banana’s than I know what to do with.

I keep on buying them, then right when they’re about to go bad, I peel them, throw them in a ziploc bag and put them in the freezer.

Then, I buy more bananas, and the cycle repeats itself.

I have thirty-seven bananas in the freezer.

Just kidding…

Not Really….

I was gonna use my tried and trusty Vegan Banana Muffin recipe, but then I thought… “Hey, I should branch out… try something new.”

This was a big mistake. There’s a reason why I love my original recipe so much!

Since I had enough bananas to feed entire entire monkey village, I used my favorite recipe to bake another batch and added a streusel topping.


All you do is follow the recipe for Vegan Banana Muffins.

Before you pop them in the oven, make the streusel topping. It’s really easy.

Streusel Topping:

3 Tablespoons cold butter cut in the small squares

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup flour

1.5 teaspoons cinnamon

Put all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until it looks like crumbs. If you don’t have a processor, you can use a pastry cutter.

Top each muffin with about 1 tablespoon of streusel topping.

Bake according to directions on original recipe.



Question of the Day

Have you ever strayed away from a trusty recipe and regretted it?

I’ve done this on several occasions. I should’ve learned my lesson by now 😉

    I have about a million bananas in my freezer too – I do the exact same thing! And I’m a bit tired of my usual banana-bran muffins so I’m thinking I’ll give yours a try. I often get a bit antsy and can’t be true to a recipe too long (well, most recipes anyway). Even when the switching results in something totally terrible, at least I’m not bored!

    I like to just eat frozen bananas, it makes me feel like I am eating ice cream, I like to add them to smoothies too. I’ve never had a bad recipe experience b/c I very rarely do anything daring in the kitchen! I am working on being a better cook. My goal this winter is to try a recipe every week.

    I constantly stray from recipes and regret doing it. Those muffins look delicious. I want one right now.

    LOL about the banana cycle, because that sounds awfully like me. My mom once yelled at me because I just kept on buying more and more bananas!
    mm…These muffins look SO good!

    Haha…some recipes, you just shouldn’t mess with 🙂 I definitely have my share of those too…and when I “play around” on the original recipe, the new one is never as good!

    These look delicious though!
