A wonderful homemade muffin to start the day. Dense and moist, the muffin is filled with wonderful banana flavor. We love the bits of tart cranberries throughout. On top is a sweet and crunchy streusel. Perfect with a cup of coffee or tea.

    Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and mix the buttermilk/banana mixture into it until well blended.

    Grease muffin cups or line each cup with a paper liner. Place batter in each cup to a level of 3/4 full.
