Banana Crumb Muffins

Recently while looking through my Recipe page, I noticed that I haven’t shared very many muffin recipes, add in my son that needs to take lunch to school plus some overripe bananas, and what do you have? Banana Crumb Muffins…delicious!

The crumb topping gives these ordinary Banana Muffins a little extra flavor and texture. We liked them warm right from the oven the best, but they were perfect to pack in lunches as well. Be sure to store them in an air tight container. They actually tasted better the next day.
