  • Reviews

  • “These muffins are delicious.I cut the amount of butter in half and used half whole wheat flour and half white flour and theywere great!My kids (8 and 5) loved them too!Will be making these again!”

  • “I made these for my DH last night and he loved them. The streusel topping makes the difference. Thanks for posting the recipe.”

  • “YUMMY!I halved the butter in the batter, halved the streusel topping, and used plain fat free yogurt instead of the sour cream.Delicious!Thanks for the recipe!”

  • “Yummeeeeeeeee! These were just great.I too used 1/2 wholemeal & 1/2 white flour.The topping takes them from great to fabulous!DH just couldn.t leave them alone LOL Thanks so much for posting this one.Jen :)”

  • “I used Sahara’s modification and used low-fat plain yogurt as opposed to the sour cream.As for my own preference,I used brown sugar instead.I really enjoy these muffins, they are not overly sweet and have a mild taste.I too, yielded more than 12, rather 15. “

  • “this is jessica mao once again.. today’s thanksgiving and i made them again.. even better than the last time i made them.. the streusel gives the muffins the perfect amount of sugar and crunch. i really think these are the best things i’ve ever made. i really think there should be more recipes like this! thankz!”

  • “Well this is a 5 Star recipe if you ask me.Tastes Fabulous.My granddaughter also agrees.I made muffin tops in my muffin top pan and cooked them about 10 minutes less than for the muffins. I also made the muffins in regular tins. IT IS A KEEPER FOR SURE!!Thanks for the great recipe.”

  • “Great Muffins, moist and delicious.Served them for a holiday breakfast and they were a big hit!Added a little nutmeg and all spice to the streudel and it made a nice combo.Also used a little vanilla…great muffin!!”

  • “I did a search to use up my 2 leftover bananas.Boy am I glad I found this recipe.These were delicious.Even my “I won’t eat anything but cereal, ham and cheese” six-year old ate one and gave me a big hug and said I was the bestest mom.I also used half wheat and half white flour and I got 14 muffins.Thanks for a scrumptious recipe.”

  • “They are delicious! They turn out nice and big and really moist. The streusel on top makes them special. I easily got 14 muffins out of the recipe.”

  • “I don’t know what made me decide to bake these at 5am to take to work… but was so glad I did… Rave reviews all around.. we had a stressful week at work and think warm banana muffins put smiles on everyone’s faces.Loved the texture and the fact that they weren’t completely “banana” tasting, just a mild flavor.Really Good..”

  • “I have made these many times with rave reviews.. this time I only added a little vanilla and pecans… they are in the oven now…”

  • “Very Good!I added a teaspoon or so of vanilla and some pecans.Loved the cinnamon!”

  • “Just made these today – and made as written with the addition of a tsp. of vanilla.These were awesome.Will definately be making again!”

  • “update: ok I made these again and they were delicious! I know something had gone wrong the first time, I had too many “little helplers” with me so we might of forgotten to add something in. >br/br/

  • “These are really good – and the streusel does make the muffin – but I think the muffin itself needs to be a little sweeter. I’m going to try adding a little more cinnamon, some vanilla and some brown sugar next time.”

  • “Yummy muffins! I also sub vanilla yogurt instead of sour cream. Absolutely fantastic!”

  • “Enjoyed these with our first cup of java for breakfast.Delicious and moist!”

  • “Yum!This made 36 mini-muffins, using the same temp and time…and there was enough streusel topping to cover all 36 muffins.Thanks, RecipeNut.”

  • “Excellent – a hit with the whole family. A nice alternative to banana bread when you have those leftover ripe bananas. I made 2 changes – I used 1/2 cup sour cream (that’s all I had on hand) and 1/2 cup vanilla flavored yogurt; and I used 1/2 white flour and 1/2 whole wheat flour. Definitely a keeper..”
