Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time35 mins
Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Servings: 12 muffins


For the Batter

  • cups all purpose flour
  • teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large bananas very ripe & mashed
  • ¼ cup buttermilk
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • teaspoons banana extract
  • vegetable spray as needed

For the Streusel

  • cup light brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter cubed


  • Preheat oven to 425° F.

For the Batter

  • Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
  • In a separate bowl whisk the egg and sugar until it lightens and becomes a little fluffy.
  • Stir in the mashed bananas, buttermilk, butter, vegetable oil and banana extract.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir. They do not need to be thoroughly combined; some lumpiness is desirable.
  • Spray a standard 12-muffin pan with vegetable spray. Fill the muffin pan with the batter. Do not fill to the brim.

For the Streusel

  • Mix the ingredients for the streusel topping together with a fork until a crumbly texture is achieved. A little extra flour may be needed.
  • Sprinkle one heaping tablespoon of the topping over the top of each muffin.
  • Bake for 18 minutes, or until the muffins are done, rotating the pan once. They should be springy to the touch.
