Banana Crumble Muffins


For my first official post on the Brecheisen Batch is a good ol’ recipe to use up ripe bananas! When I say ripe bananas, I’m talking about bananas that have gone slightly passed cheetah spots that are perfect for making sorbets by using the yonana’s machine! A lifesaver invention for people, like me, that  want a sweet and creamy treat, but are limited on choices.  I’ll make a post soon about that beautiful device, but for right now, we’ll focus on the muffins.

Back to the bananas, yes, this recipe is perfect for the banana that is going beyond the brown spots and heading towards the blotches! What makes this recipe extra delicious is the crumble on top of the muffin. I love banana muffins, period, but this addition makes the recipe just perfect for a special occasion.

This recipe is gluten-free, egg-free, soy-free, dairy-free, and family friendly! It is solid recipe for a variety of allergies.

This recipe came about, because of a need to use bananas that spoiled too quickly and a birthday party that a sweet treat was needed. I had the bananas, I had the need, and thus, this recipe became to be!

For all my baking and flour usage, the gluten-free flour mix that I use is this one: All Purpose Gluten-Free Flour Mix.  I’ll do an official post about the mix soon.
