Banana Muffins with Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Streusel
  makes 16 muffins
  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • 1 and 1/2 cup mashed bananas, very ripe (about 3 large ripe bananas)
  • 3 Tablespoons yogurt (I used vanilla greek yogurt) -  
  • I used vanilla honey yogurt
Streusel
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts -
  • I did NOT use walnuts my family doesn't like them
Preheat oven to 425F degrees. Line muffin tin with baking cups or spray with nonstick spray. Set aside.

Make the streusel first by combining all ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, gently toss together the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. Using an electric stand or hand mixer, beat the sugar, butter, and egg in a large bowl until fluffy, scraping down the sides as needed. On low speed, beat in the mashed bananas and yogurt. I mixed the banana and yogurt together in a separate bowl then added it to the batter. By hand, stir in the dry ingredients mixing until everything is *just* combined. Do not over mix.
Layer one spoonful of batter into the muffin cup. Sprinkle with streusel. Layer another spoonful on top and layer with more streusel. Continue to layer batter and streusel into each muffin tin.
Bake muffins for 5 minutes at 425F degrees. Lower temperature dial down to 350F degrees and continue to bake for about 14 more minutes until the muffins are set and lightly browned.
Allow to cool for 5 minutes in the tins and transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

I am not that great at baking and these muffins turned out perfect and were gone within hours. They are so fluffy and moist. I love the topping!!!!!
