Blueberry Banana Streusel Muffins

Blueberry Banana Streusel Muffins
These are what I call REALLY great muffins. Every time I go to get a coffee somewhere, I always crave a blueberry muffin. I have to say that they aren't as good as muffins you can make at home. Most of the times they don't have a streusel topping. A great muffin has got to have a streusel topping! What is a blueberry banana muffin without one? It's a pretty mediocre muffin.



What's so beautiful about this recipe is that it's all stirred by hand. No electric mixer is needed. Be sure to not overstir. It's quite alright if the batter is a little lumpy. Too much stirring will only get you tough muffins.

If you're looking for something really easy to have your kids bake for you (with adult supervision on the oven part), this is the recipe that they could make just for you! What mom wouldn't want to wake up tomorrow morning to a fresh batch of blueberry banana muffins with a little extra streusel topping.

I know I would! (subtle hints to my kids if they're reading this post today)

The muffins were scorching hot just out of the oven. I had to wait a few minutes to pull one apart to show you the juicy berries and how moist they were. These muffins are delicate, not too heavy and you could use butter instead of margarine for the streusel topping if you're not trying to make them vegan. This is my go-to muffin recipe that is so easy to put together and you can add whatever berry or even chocolate chips!

To all my mommy friends: Happy Mother's Day! You deserve a dozen muffins-enjoy your day.

  • 3 very ripe bananas, mashed well
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup almond milk, mixed with 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup blueberries
for the topping:
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon margarine
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a muffin tin with non stick cooking spray, or lightly coat with margarine.

Sift together flour, baking soda, salt and spices.

In a separate bowl, stir together the oil and sugar. Add bananas, milk and vanilla. Gently fold in the blueberries

Add the wet ingredients to the dry. Mix well. Spoon batter into the muffin tin. 

For topping, in a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, flour and cinnamon; with your fingers, incorporate the margarine to the flour mixture until crumbly. Sprinkle topping over the muffins.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Serve warm.

  1. I´ll have all the muffin tops with the streusel only. Any cake or muffin with streusel is a winner. They are delectable Lora! I can imagine the smell while baking.

  10. I'm always on the hunt for a good blueberry muffin and yours look perfect, Lora! So fluffy and moist inside. And that is one serious streusel topping. One of these days, I just want to bake a pan of streusel and eat it alone, that's how much I love it!

  13. [...] google_ad_client="ca-pub-8790595914302534";google_ad_slot="3390603102";google_ad_width=300;google_ad_height=250; I made these today for the first time and they were oh, so tasty! The muffin was light and fluffy and the perfect brunch treat for a hot day. The recipe calls for a streusel topping which is good, but if you're looking to be a little bit more health conscious they would still be really delicious without it. (I think I might actually prefer them without it because I like my muffins a little less sweet.) Mine were perfectly done at 25 minutes. Blueberry Banana Streusel Muffins - Cake Duchess [...]

  14. I made a batch of these this morning to have as a snack when a girlfriend came over to visit. We both have dairy issues and so if we want a treat we have to make it ourselves or suffer the consequences. These were totally worth the time and effort-- they were very quick and easy to make with minimal cleanup. We both thought they were SO tasty. Thanks for sharing such a fantastic recipe!

  15. I have all of these ingredients in the house and the muffins are in the oven. Looking forward to trying them!

  16. My hubby made these today for Sunday brunch, they were delish. The only problem he had with the recipe was that the instructions didn't indicate when to add the baking powder, unless it's to be added as a part of the "spices". They still were yummy and we will be making them again - this time with the baking powder just to see what difference having it in the muffins makes in the final product. Thanks for the recipe!

  17. hello, just wondering, would it be ok to substitute the almond milk + apple cider vinegar mixture with normal milk? Thanks for the recipe though, I can't wait to try it, the muffins look delicious!

  18. This recipe looks fantastic! Just wondering if you can use soy milk instead of almond... or if it would react strange with the apple cider vinegar?? I'll try it and see since that's what I've got.
    Looking for a yummy way to use the blueberries my kids picked yesterday! Thanks!

  19. My friend made me these last month and and I looooved them. I'm pregnant and I was dying to eat some batter that didn't have raw egg in it too (I mean, come on--it's the little things!!). Right now they are cooking away in the oven. I can't wait...:)
