I am very picky about muffins. I do not like dry ones! They must be moist, flavorful and if they have a streusel topping then that is even better! Luckily, this version of banana muffins really fit that bill and hit the spot!
I also love it when you don't have to mix up muffins or quick breads in a mixer. For years I have used my Tupperware Mix and Store Batter Bowl for making everything from cupcakes, to muffins to pancakes. That pour spout is just so handy when it is time to fill cupcake liners or to pour out pancake batter onto a hot griddle! My Tupperware bowl is getting a little worse for wear, but I still use it. Plus, I also have a Pampered Chef version in glass. When I'm not using my Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer, these are the best bowls to use when mixing with a portable mixer or by hand. There are quite a few versions of this type of bowl, such as this one by Anchor Hocking or a set of them in stainless by Rorence.
This recipe can be all mixed together in one of my favorite mixing bowls by hand in no time and then popped in the oven. It is a quick clean-up after that which is another reason to love this recipe.
Using up black bananas? Check! This recipe uses 3 of them!
Will feed a crowd? This recipe makes about 18 muffins, so not bad! Since I made them for just myself and my husband, then shared some with friends, we still have a few on day 3. But guess what! They are still as moist and delicious as day 1! So check and check!
It helps to keep them stored in an air tight container of course. I'm using my Tupperware 12" round container. It is always my go to for muffins, cupcakes and cookies.
The brown sugar streusel topping adds the perfect crunch to the tops of these muffins because the muffin itself is so soft and moist. Together you get the perfect combination for what tastes like the perfect muffin to go with your Hot Cocoa Bomb, or your hot apple cider! (I've tried them with both!)
I found this recipe awhile back on Sugar Spun Run, and tweaked it a bit for my purposes, so you can click to her recipe or here is my version.
