Author Coco and Ash


  • 1 and 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 large very ripe bananas 
  • 1 large egg
  • 2/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons salted butter (melted)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk

Cinnamon Streusel Topping

  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons softened butter


  • Pre-heat your oven to 425 and prepare a 12 count muffin pan. You can either spray with non-stick spray or use muffin liners. 
  • In a small bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. 
  • In a larger bowl, mash the bananas then whisk in the egg, brown sugar, melted butter, milk, and vanilla extract. 
  • Add the dry ingredients to the large bowl with the wet ingredients and stir to combine. 
  • Evenly fill the muffin pans. You should have just enough to make 12 muffins, filled a little over half way each. 
  • To make the cinnamon topping, combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mash together with a fork until the mixture resembles wet sand.
  • Sprinkle the tops of each muffin with the cinnamon sugar mixture. 
  • Place in the oven and immediately lower the temperature to 350 degrees and bake for 22-25 minutes.
