This is a nice banana bread recipe, but with the topping...well now it has the WOW factor. They're sweet, so be warned. :) This makes 2 loaves or 2 x 12 muffin pans, or one of each. If you cook one of each make sure the muffins are baked for approximately 35 minutes and the loaf is baked for approximately 50 minutes. The topping needs 15-20 minutes within those baking times mentioned. Sorry if it's confusing.
