Description

These cinnamon banana bread muffins are the perfect muffin if you love a sweet crumb on top. These muffins don’t last 2 days in our house!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c. vegetable/canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 c. granulated sugar
  • 2 small bananas (around 2/3 c.)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 2/3 c. unbleached  all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Cinnamon and Sugar Topping:

  • 1/2 granulated sugar
  • 3/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp. unsalted butter

Instructions

  1. Set oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with 11 paper liners or spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the vegetable oil, eggs, and granulated sugar.
  3. Add the bananas and vanilla to the bowl, and mix well.
  4. Finally, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon.
  5. Add the batter in the muffin cups. The muffin cups will be 3/4 full.
  6. Bake muffins for 17-21 minutes. The tops of the muffins will be light brown.
  7. As the muffins are baking, melt 3 tbsp. unsalted butter in a small bowl.
  8. In another small bowl, combine the cinnamon and sugar together for the topping.
  9. When the muffins are done baking, I let them cool for at least 5 minutes on a cooling rack. When they have cooled a little, you can then take a muffin to dip it in the melted butter followed by the cinnamon and sugar mixture.
  10. You can eat them warm or room temperature. (I prefer them warm!)

Notes

If you prefer to have less sugar in these muffins, you can omit the topping.
