  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper liners.
  2. Whisk 1 1/2 cup flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Beat bananas, 3/4 cup brown sugar, agave syrup, egg, and 1/3 cup applesauce in a separate bowl until thoroughly combined. Stir banana mixture into the dry ingredients to make a smooth batter. Fill muffin cups about 2/3 full of batter.
  3. Mix 1/3 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, and cinnamon in a bowl; stir 1 1/2 teaspoons of applesauce into the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle topping over muffins.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden brown and a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Since packed brown sugar is not as sweet as white sugar, I added a tablespoon of agave honey/syrup. The bananas were very ripe (the skin was already brown) so if the bananas you have are not that ripe, you might want to add more agave syrup. I live in Yucatan's peninsula so preheated the oven at 150°C. If you live in a non-altitude place you might have to bake 20°C to 30°C less than what the recipe calls for.

Taste good. Crumb topping didn't work so well, not crumbly, too moist,

These came out really nicely...I had to use more applesauce and less bananas because I ran out. They are really sweet and dont even taste "healthy"! Even though I used whole whaeat flour.

I used two bananas, omitted the agave syrup and added a handful of chocolate chips. I added too much applesauce to the crumble topping so it was more like a paste on top of the muffins. They tu...

Such an awesome recipe! I had quite a few bananas to get rid of, so I just doubled the recipe. I threw some leftover shredded coconut into the batter, and added oats to give the crumble more sub...

These were quite good, especially for a reduced-fat muffin. They are much lighter tasting than a traditional banana muffin/bread. They were a little chewy but not so much as other reduced-fat ...

I used the topping for the Dietetic Banana Muffins submitted by Bridget. It was delicious. Don't fill the muffin tin cups too full because it will boil over.

I made this today. Delicious! I used 1 cup all purpose flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat and instead of the egg, I used egg replacer to make this vegan. My Husband said it was "freakin good." I ...

Good basic recipe. I thought the 1 tablespoon of agave made the batter a little too sweet, so I added 1/4 cup of chopped unsweetened cherries. I substituted 1/4 cup of egg beater for 1 egg. I...
