Cinnamon Banana Muffins

 

Banana-Cinnamon Muffins have a mild banana flavor, topped with a cinnamon-sugar crown.  I love the blending of the banana and cinnamon flavors.  You taste the flavor of the banana, but it is not overpowering.  The sugar-cinnamon topping gives the muffin a little bit of a crunch plus some sweetness.  The muffins are yummy when they are warm, but are still very good at room temperature.  Jeff isn't a big fan of banana bread, but he likes these muffins.  He even took some to work with him!

 

The Cinnamon-Sugar crunch comes from dipping the baked muffins into melted butter then into a sugar-cinnamon blend.  Using vegan butter makes these muffins dairy-free.  If you are not concerned with being dairy-free, then you can use butter.

 

I had a few bananas that were getting very ripe, so I did some searching to find something to bake with the bananas.  In the past, I always made banana bread with ripe bananas but I wanted to try something different this time.  I found a few recipes I want to try but decided on making a Betty Crocker recipe first.  They are delicious!

 

One thing I like about this recipe is that it makes just 12 muffins, which makes it a fairly quick recipe to make.  I tested freezing a couple of the muffins and they freeze pretty well.  I thawed the frozen muffins on the counter.  The only difference I noticed is that the sugary top is not visible after it was frozen but you still get a bit of a crunchy top.   It isn't as crunchy as when they are fresh, but they are still good.  I would freeze them again, but with making just 12 muffins, I may not have any leftover to freeze!   

 

I hope you enjoy!

      Instructions
      1. Heat oven to 375F.
      2. Grease the bottoms only on 12 regular-size muffin cups or line with baking cups.
      3. Mash bananas and set aside. I mashed two bananas and had slightly more than 2/3 cup. I used all of it without any issue.
      4. In a medium bowl, beat 2/3 cup sugar, oil and eggs with a wire whisk.
      5. Stir in mashed bananas and vanilla.
      6. Stir in flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon until ingredients are just moistened. Do not over mix.
      7. Divide batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups.
      8. Bake 17 to 21 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
      9. Immediately remove from pan to cooling rack.
      10. In a bowl wide enough and shallow enough to dip the muffins, melt the butter.
      11. In a separate bowl wide enough and shallow enough to dip the muffins, mix the 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 cup sugar.
      12. While the muffins are still warm, dip the muffin top into the melted butter then into the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
      13. Serve warm.
