Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray 10 muffin cups with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk 1 1/2 cups sifted whole wheat flour with baking soda, baking powder, salt, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a large bowl. Mix together mashed bananas, 1/2 cup melted unsalted butter, egg, white sugar, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl. Gently fold banana mixture into dry ingredients just until moistened; do not overmix. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling them about 3/4 full.
  3. Mix dark brown sugar with 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl, stirring until combined; mash 1 tablespoon unsalted butter into the mixture with a fork until streusel topping resembles crumbs. Sprinkle topping over muffins.
  4. Bake muffins in the preheated oven until a toothpick comes out clean or with moist crumbs, about 20 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Sifting the whole wheat flour adds air and allows the wheat flour to become lighter, so that the muffins are less dense.

This recipe is the best ever! I was searching and searching for the healthy and delicious baked goods and the idea of moist banana muffin yet entirely whole wheat flour muffin was very tempting. It was very moist. I added organic chia seeds to the flour mixture, and used 1/2 cup of unpasturized honey and 1/2 organic cane sugar instead of white and brown sugar for the topping. I also added organic walnuts on the top. It came out beautifully. Thank you so much for inventing this recipe!!!!!

Just took these muffins out of the oven- they are delicious warm with a cold glass of milk. I don't usually like to make changes to recipes when I review them, but I didn't do the topping because I ran out of butter so I added some chocolate chips to the batter.

Very good. I didn't do the streusal topping--I'd run out of steam by then, so just topped with a sprinkle each of cinnamon and brown sugar. Hubs and niece really enjoyed them; niece says 4 1/2 stars. Hubs says he'd like more banana flavor--but it was good as is, and he says he always would like more banana flavor. I don't have a flour sifter, so just put the wheat flour in the KA for a while and ran it--wasn't sure it'd work, but it did. Muffins came out moist and not at all dense. Thanks for the recipe!

Great whole wheat alternative to the popular "Banana Crumb Muffins" recipe. Made these muffins several times, store them in the freezer, and they are great!

Go figure, I forgot butter when I went shopping, so I subbed some yogurt. The muffins did turn out good enough to make me go back for seconds. They were very moist.

Excellent recipe! Super moist. I didn't have bananas, so instead I used three peaches and replaced the cinnamon in the batter with ground ginger. (Peaches were pretty firm, ripe but not juicy.) Threw the wet stuff in the food processor and pulsed. Will definitely be making these again!

Delicious! I added 1/4 c apple cinnamon applesauce, 1/2 c semi sweet chic chips, and cut back on the sugar and butter. I also used 4 medium bananas instead of 3. My family loved them!
