Happy 4th of July! I know I should be bringing you some red, white, and blue recipe that’s festive, delicious, and perfect for your cookout…but I’m not. Why? Well….I didn’t plan ahead. I’m still new at this food blogger thing and have realized that I need to correlate recipes with holidays. Oooops….well that wont be today, but I am excited to start doing that. Don’t worry though!! Today’s recipe is still amazing. These Coffee Shop Banana Streusel Muffins are one of my favorite things to make when I have overripe bananas. I LOVE them!

Coffee Shop Banana Streusel Muffins

For these muffins, you don’t just add mashed bananas into the batter. Oh no. You take those beautifully overripe bananas and you whip them in a mixing bowl until they are super light and fluffy. Like THE most glorious banana fluff. This is part of what makes these muffins so delightful but it gets better.  Once you get the wet ingredients combined and the banana fluff incorporated, it’s time to add your dry ingredients, mixing until just wet. The batter gets spooned into your greased and lined muffin tin. Now it is time…time to make the streusel topping that takes these banana muffins from good to great to amazing to out of this world.

For this streusel topping, you use melted butter to get the perfect crumbly texture. You add flour, powdered sugar, cinnamon, and salt right on top of the melted butter and use your fingers to create crumbles. I love this method and I think it works a lot better than using cold butter that you cut into dry ingredients. Now you add it generously, and I mean generously, to the top of your batter.

These muffins bake up beautifully every time. I love how they puff up and come up over the edges of the tin. They really do look like something you would find in a nice coffee shop or bakery, only they come out of your oven! So grab one of these muffins and a cup of coffee, sit down, and relax before your 4th of July cookout begins 🙂

    Found your blog/site and this was the first recipe you sent – made them this am — passed a few out to neighbors and we all sat on the front porch and put them away ! Very yummy and full of flavor — thought I’d miss the ‘nuts’ as in a traditional banana bread – nope !!! Thanks for a great recipe !
