At last I can turn my oven back on! Muffins are an easy way to get you warmed up for the baking season!

Banana Crunch Muffins
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Line muffin tin with paper liners and set aside.

1 1/2 cup Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/3 cup Butter (melted)
3 Bananas (mashed)
3/4 cup Sugar
1 Egg

In a large bowl mix together the flour baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
Melt the butter in the microwave and set aside to cool slightly.
In another bowl combine the bananas, sugar, egg. Now add the butter and mix well.
Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just combined.
Spoon the batter into the muffin cups then make your crunchy topping.

For the crunchy topping:
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
Pinch Salt
2 tablespoons Flour
1/4 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1 tablespoon Butter (cold)

In a small bowl mix together brown sugar, flour, pinch of salt, cinnamon.
Mix in the cold butter with your fingers. I like to pinch off small pieces and mash them in until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. You can also use a fork to cut in the butter.
Sprinkle the mixture over the muffins.

Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
