Banana Nut Crumb Muffins

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 bananas, mashed
3/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup oil
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Crumb Topping
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup pecans (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease 12 muffin cups, or line with muffin papers.
2. In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
3. In another bowl, beat together bananas, sugar, vanilla, egg, oil, and pecans (if desired). Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture just until moistened. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
4. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and pecans (if desired). Cut in 2 tablespoons butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Sprinkle topping over muffins.
5. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.

There aren't enough words to describe how great these muffins were! I made them yesterday for breakfast and they were FABULOUS!! I found the recipe at I did alter it slightly. I substituted oil for the butter called for in the recipe, I added pecans to both the batter and topping, I added a teaspoon of vanilla, and I also added an extra tablespoon of the butter to the topping. I thought the nuts added a lot to the recipe and would highly recommend it if you like nuts. The recipe stated that it would make 10 muffins, but I used a 12 muffin tin and it made 12 very large muffins! I will most definitely be making these again! Enjoy!
