I don't eat a lot of banana bread, so I can't comment on how this compares to other recipes, but based on my limited knowledge, it was WELL worth making again as a banana bread. I made them for Christmas breakfast, and my dad (who doesn't often comment when something is GOOD), definitely made a point to say that he thought that was the best food served all day, beating out anything on the Christmas dinner table. My hubby thought that they were so good, he left his vegan lifestyle to consume more than his fair fair-share of muffins, whose egg/butter contents are FAR from his list of ingredients that are allowed to enter his gastric tract. Based on other reviews, I was torn as to when to add the topping: before baking or just before they're ready to pop out of the oven, so I did half of one, half of the other. Believe me, adding topping BEFORE they go in the oven is the way to go for two reasons: 1. The muffins that started out with crumbles baked up nice and golden brown with an even crust of sugary goodness; the others looked pale and sickly in comparison. 2. Adding the crumbles just before they were ready to leave the oven meant you were trying to get the crumbs to land on a little, round muffin-top surface. Gravity was definitely working against me, so these muffins didn't get as much topping. The end results were equal in texture, but much easier to situate and far prettier when added to the fresh batter prior to baking.
