Brown Butter Banana Muffins

20 Oct

I love making banana bread/muffin type recipes. After I found the best banana bread recipe, I decided to venture out and go with another recipe with crumbs on top. Gosh, what’s better than crumbs on top of a warm and delicious banana muffin?


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 bananas, mashed

1 ts cinnamon

1/4 cup white sugar (you can add a little more for slightly sweeter muffins)

1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed

1 ts vanilla

1 egg

1/3 cup butter, melted and browned

For crumbs:  

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon butter


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place muffin cups inside the tins.

2. In a nonstick pan, low and slowly melt butter, until brown.

3. After butter is browned, add it in the mixture of mashed bananas, then add in granulated and brown sugar, vanilla, egg, and cinnamon.

4. In a large bowl, mix in flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

5. Stir in the banana/butter mixture into the dry ingredients, mix until incorporated.

6. Scoop the mixture into muffin tins, about 3/4 full.

7. For crumbs: mix in butter, cinnamon, flour, and brown sugar with your hands.

8. Sprinkle crumbs on top of each muffin, and let it bake for about 13 minutes.

Yum! 13 minutes later…
