Chocolate Banana Streusel Muffins

July 25, 2014Teresa

Chocolate Banana Streusel Muffins are irresistible. 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. She was there 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. I looked through my cookbook and came across this recipe. I’ve been wanting to try it for ages. 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. They print some awesome recipes for consumers to use. Their website features some great looking recipes too. I’ve also made their Almond Brickle Coffee Cake. It came from the inside of a butter carton as well. Both recipes have been fantastic.

This is a knock-your-socks-off breakfast muffin recipe. 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. 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.

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.
