Banana Crumb Muffins

Muffins are the best food ever. They’re not as sweet as cake, more versatile than cookies, and the perfect breakfast/lunch/dinner/dessert/snack treat in the world. Mini, regular sized, or as-big-as-your-face, there’s no such thing as a bad homemade muffin. So when these bananas started to get to the end of their life, I just had to use them! So I bring you these muffins.

They start out like most other muffins, with a batter (duh). And then they’re topped with crumb. Since the muffin top is clearly the best part of the muffin, why not just make it better with buttery-sugary-cinnamony goodness? I wish I could get all of you some of these muffins, but I can’t. I ate them all. 😉
