Banana Streusel Muffins

Are you looking for a yummy way to use those old bananas? I went searching on the internet and came across these yummy muffins! I made a couple of modifications that are listed on the bottom.

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 bananas, mashed
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten

1/3 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease 10 muffin cups, or line with muffin papers.
In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat together bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter. Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture just until moistened. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and cinnamon. Cut in 1 tablespoon butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Sprinkle topping over muffins.
Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.

-Reduced sugar to 1/2 cup
-Substituted Canola Oil for the butter (in the batter, not the topping)
-Added 1 tsp cinnamon to batter

I was also able to get 11 muffins out of the batter instead of 10. Wonder how unsweetened apple sauce would work instead of the butter/oil? Also will try Whole Wheat flour next time.
Sasha thought they were, "ummy"!
