Banana Nut Crumb Muffins

Adapted from Allrecipes

For the muffins:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 bananas, mashed

3/4 cup white sugar

1 egg, lightly beaten

½ teaspoon cinnamon

1/3 cup butter, melted

½ cup chopped pecans, toasted (optional but you would be crazy to leave them out!)

For the topping:

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon butter  

3 tablespoons chopped pecans, toasted (again, optional)

Heat oven to 375.  Lightly grease 12 muffin cups, or line with muffin papers.  

In a large bowl, mix together 1 ½ cups flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat together bananas, sugar, egg, cinnamon and melted butter. Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture just until moistened. Fold in the pecans.  Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.  

In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and cinnamon. Cut in 1 tablespoon butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Add in chopped pecans.  Sprinkle topping over muffins.  

Bake in preheated oven for 16 to 18 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.
