Banana Muffins

These are the yummiest banana muffins, they taste just like banana bread. Sometimes I make the crumb topping with oats, you can also make it without. If you want to go healthier you can add 1/2 cup oats to the batter- it makes it a tad drier so I'd recommend adding another banana if you have one, but it still tastes delicious either way.

1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

Crumb topping
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons oats (optional)

Mix wet ingredients, then stir in dry ingrients until well mixed. Stir in nuts. Mix crumb topping. Pour batter into greased muffin pan and top with crumb topping. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes.

*You can also use this for banana bread- makes a smaller loaf- just bake for 50-60 minutes.
*I'm lazy and sometimes don't make the topping, they still taste great- I just usually add a bit more brown sugar to compensate...
