Banana Walnut Crumb Muffins

Banana Walnut Crumb Muffins

I had 3 ripe bananas..i was looking for an easy recipe that i could make that i would be able to tweak a little to make it "somewhat" healthy.  I did...thanks to a blog that i found "Culinary in the Country" i made these

I changed it up a  little bit to make it a "little" bit healthier...i did wind up using real sugar but I used I cant believe its not butter, and i added a scoop of vanilla protein powder to the mix.  Also, i added a handful of chocolate chips and i also added some walnuts into the batter...not just in the topping :)

Banana Walnut Crumb Muffins

For the muffin batter

1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large ripe bananas -- mashed with a fork
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg -- well beaten
1/3 cup butter -- melted ( i used I cant believe its not butter)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder

For the Crumb Top

1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon cold butter
1/4 cup finely chopped, toasted walnuts

Set oven to 375 degrees. Lightly spray a 12 cup muffin pan with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine all dry muffin ingredients (except for the sugar). In another bowl, combine the bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter; mix well, stir into the dry ingredients, only until moistened. Fill the muffin cups 3/4 cup full.

Crumb Topping: Combine brown sugar, flour, cinnamon; cut into butter until crumbly, add in the nuts. Sprinkle over muffins.

Bake 18-20 minutes, or until muffins test done. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack.
