Homemade Banana Crumb Muffins on Deliciously Sprinkled

This is one of those old family recipes that is just plain good! It’s so simple and purely delicious. Everyone in the family is in love with this recipe and these banana crumb muffins sure don’t last long in our house!

This is the perfect muffin for any banana lover and the brown sugar crumb topping is perfect! This is one of my all time favorite muffins and with bananas getting ripe in the house, I had to make these. The aroma that filled the house was AMAZING and it was so tempting to pop one in my mouth while I was taking pictures. Ahh they are so good! 

Homemade Banana Crumb Muffins Recipe


Pecans, chocolate chips, or walnuts would make a great addition to theses banana muffins, I added 1/2 cup of pecans to the batter and sprinkled a handful of pecans and sugar crystals on top for an added crunch!

Banana Muffins:
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 bananas, mashed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
Brown Sugar Crumb:
  • 1/3 cup golden brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup pecans for topping, optional


Preheat oven to 375F degrees. Lightly grease 10 muffin cups, or line with muffin liners.

In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. In another bowl, beat together bananas, sugars,vanilla, egg and canola oil. Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture just until moistened. Fold in pecans. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.

In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and cinnamon. Cut in 1 tablespoon butter until mixture resembles coarse crumble. Sprinkle topping over muffins.

Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean. Sprinkle remaining pecans on the top of each muffin, optional.


*Store muffins at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

    Oh, yum! Too bad I don’t have any ripe bananas right now, or I might just be heading into the kitchen to make these. Love the brown sugar topping. I think I would add a few finely chopped pecans to the topping, too.
