Banana Crumb Muffins

Sue H


These are a moist tasty muffin with a cinnamon and brown sugar streusel topping. A great way to use up those ripened bananas!
The grand kids love these, especially when I add some chocolate chips!
I saved this recipe about five years ago from another recipe site/submitted by Lisa Kreft.
