I am on a total muffin kick lately! I've been making them once or twice a week for the last few months. They're kind of the perfect food for a busy nursing mom! I can make a whole bunch at once, I can eat them with one hand, and they're great for snacks, breakfast, lunch, etc. My kids are pretty crazy about them too, so we've all been enjoying the bounty of muffins.

Like most people, we seem to be really hit and miss with bananas. Some weeks, we eat a whole bunch of bananas in two days, and other weeks nobody is interested in bananas and they get brown and spotty before anyone even glances their way. I had a bunch of spotty bananas on hand, and decided it was time to make some banana muffins. I've been using the same recipe for banana muffins for years, but this time I decided to make them extra special with some buttery streusel on top. They turned out totally fantastic!

The muffin base is adapted from my favorite banana bread recipe, and it gives the muffins the perfect sweet banana flavor and tender texture. The walnuts in the streusel give it a little extra crunch and complement the banana flavor perfectly. Seriously, the combination of banana, cinnamon, and walnut is pretty much perfection!

Banana Streusel Muffins

for the muffins:
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup buttermilk
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 overripe bananas, mashed

for the streusel:
1/2 cup flour
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons finely chopped walnuts
4 tablespoons melted butter

Preheat the oven to 425. Line 18 muffin cups with paper liners. In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, vanilla, and milk, and mix until smooth. Add the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder, and mix until just combined. Fold in the mashed bananas and mix until combined. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tin, filling 3/4 full. To make the streusel, whisk the flour, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and walnuts together with a fork in a small bowl. Drizzle in the melted butter and whisk until the butter is blended in and the mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle the streusel over the tops of the muffins. Bake 15 minutes, or until light golden brown on top and cooked through.
