Chocolate Banana Streusel Muffins

Chocolate Banana Streusel Muffins are incredible. Seriously! These lovely muffins have bananas and cinnamon in the batter. Then they’re topped with a streusel made from butter, brown sugar, and miniature chocolate chips. When the streusel topping bakes, it turns into a wonderful toffee flavor. That toffee flavor along with the chocolate chips is nothing short of sensational.

A week or so ago I had a dear friend return from a month of bereavement in Arkansas trying to help her mom settle her father’s estate. I knew she would be worn out so I offered to bring her a meal. I also thought I would send along some stuff for breakfast the following day. So as I was looking through my cookbook I came across this recipe that I’ve been wanting to try. I’m really glad I did because this was one super-duper muffin recipe.

I found this amazing recipe on the inside of a Land O Lakes Butter container (believe it or not!). I’ve found that Land O Lakes does a fabulous job with their test kitchen and they print some awesome recipes for consumers to use. Their website features some great looking recipes too. I’ve also made Almond Brickle Coffee Cake which came from the inside of a butter carton as well and both recipes have been fantastic.

If you’re looking for a knock-your-socks-off breakfast muffin recipe, then this one will certainly do it. It’s a great recipe to consider for holiday breakfasts, baby showers, or even as a dessert. You and your family will rave over these heavenly muffins, and you may even find that your family wants you to make them over and over and over! Hey, making a batch of Chocolate Banana Streusel Muffins is also a great way to use up overripe bananas! Yum, I think it’s time to make another batch. 🙂

The streusel topping is almost like toffee mixed with chocolate chips once it’s baked.

 

Here’s what I did.

Whisk lightly to combine.

Spray miniature muffin tins with cooking spray. Fill muffin tins about 1/2 to 2/3 full. (These are too full and I ended up taking some of the batter out of each one.

To prepare streusel: Place softened butter, flour and brown sugar in a small mixing bowl. Combine then stir in the chocolate chips.

I made up a batch of these treats for a friend who was recently bereaved. They’re a wonderful option for breakfast along with fruit.
