These banana crumb muffins are so delicious that they are the number one recipe on allrecipes.com. I'm talking about number ONE....numero uno! Out of what...like MILLIONS of recipes on that site?? Okay, I'm not sure exactly how many recipes there are, but there has to be at least thousands. Well...it's number one for a reason: they are magnificently scrump-ti-dee-ump-cious. I've never had such a good banana muffin in my entire life. The only thing I did differently from the original recipe was use one more banana, use super ripe bananas (I'm talking completely brown and gross-looking), cook for a little less time, and adjust the quantity. They are so moist and fluffy, with the perfect amount of sweetness and just the right amount of banana flavor. They don't even need nuts, chocolate chips, vanilla, cinnamon (besides in the topping), or nutmeg! Sounds crazy, but I promise the flavor is absolutely perfect as is. The thing that really sets these muffins over the top is the crumb topping. It's brown sugary-buttery-cinnamony delight and it's my favorite part about these muffins. These are delicious served warm, and also very yummy at room temperature.
Yield: about 12 muffins
