Kittencal's Banana-Almond Muffins With Almond Streusel

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 20 mins

To save some time prepare the topping in advance and refrigerate. You should get around 10-12 muffins depending on the size of bananas you use, the yield is only estimated, 1 cup of sugar will give you a sweet muffin you may reduce the sugar if desired --- these bake out high and moist with lots of flavor and are one of my family's all-time favorite muffins, you will love these!

What a muffin! These are moist, big and full of flavor...the perfect sidekick to a cup of coffee. I cut the sugar to 3/4 cup and they have the right amount of sweetness. These would be great even w/o the topping. Made for 123 Hit Wonders.

Brilliant recipe. Absolutely fantastic as directed. My muffins usually turn out like a 3rd grade home economic project gone bad. These baked simply perfect. Excellent measurements. A family keeper.

Excellent muffins! Followed the recipe exactly (which was awesome as I had no idea what to do with my almonds and then saw this recipe!). Everyone in my house loves them! They are moist and delicious, and the streusel is a perfect crispiness. Definitely something to add to my list of regularly made baked goodies!
