Banana Vanilla Muffins with Vanilla Cinnamon Topping

Today I had a doctors appointment and no one to watch my kiddos. I borrowed my girlfriends 16 yr. old daughter to sit with them in the waiting room. To show my appreciation I baked them muffins. Considering that the appointment was at 8:30 a.m. which caused them to wake up early. They deserved these yummy delicious muffins. Yes, I was making muffins at 6:30 a.m. this morning from scratch! What?! I am crazy?! Probably. Don't worry, I made two batches too. I made a batch for my girls and husband as well as the dozen for my friends.. ANYWAY, these turned out incredible.....

3 cps. flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
5 bananas
1 1/2 cp sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla paste or extracts

6 TB Flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. BVBC Ground Bourbon Vanilla Beans
2/3 cp. packed brown sugar
2 Tb. cold butter

1. Sift the dry ingredients and set aside. Mash the bananas and add the sugar stir. Add the eggs and vanilla paste and beat again. Add the dry ingredients until just combined.

2. Throw everything in the crumb topping in a food processor and process. Process until it feels like a coarse meal.

3. Add about 3 TB of batter into each greased cup in the muffin tin. Top with the crumb topping. Bake on 350 for about 20 minutes.

This recipe makes 24 incredible muffins...SHARE.


  1. I used to babysit for my neighbor in exchange for her perfect yeasty dinner rolls. I bet these muffins were appreciated!

    They look delicious. I love vanilla bean in anything, but don't see it often in muffins. These are on my TO BAKE list!!

  2. Um...I'll watch them next time ;) These sound awesome!

  3. mmm...vanilla and banana. The two go great with each other. I wouldn't mind having a couple of those right now.

  4. You are not crazy. Your just you( my husbands assessment of me). I think works for you too. Anyway the muffins look delicious. Vanilla and more vanilla what could be better?
