Banana Chocolate Crumb Muffins

I don't buy bananas too often because they tend to go bad quickly and then those crazy fruit flies start flying everywhere and I can't handle it. (And has anyone ever heard of one of the ways to get rid of them with the oven method? Disgusting! Google it if you have no clue what I'm talking about) But now that I've been baking more I know that I don't have to worry about bananas going bad anymore. These muffins were excellent, although I think they would be even better with chocolate chips throughout the entire muffin instead of just on the top. This is a great muffin to whip up for breakfast this weekend!

3-4 bananas, mashed
1/4 c melted butter
1 1/2 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/3 c granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Crumb Topping
3 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1/2 c mini chocolate chips
1 tablespoon butter


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease or line muffin tin with liners. In a large mixing bowl using a wooden spoon, mix butter and mashed bananas. Mix in granulated sugar, egg & vanilla. Sprinkle baking soda, baking powder and salt over the mixture. Add the flour, mix until just incorporated. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.

In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar & 1 Tbsp all-purpose flour. Cut in 1 tablespoon butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Stir in mini chocolate chips. Sprinkle topping over muffins.

Bake in preheated oven 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.
