I made these muffins last week and they were incredible! Definitely the best banana muffins I've ever had. I had some bananas in the freezer that I needed to use up, so I looked on allrecipes.com and found this recipe that was rated 4.78 out of 5 stars by 4562 people. I used whole wheat pastry flour instead of all-purpose flour and it worked great.
Ingredients: 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 sugar 1 egg, lightly beaten 1/3 cup butter, melted 1/3 cup packed brown sugar 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 tablespoon butter
Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease 10 muffin cups (I did 12), or line with muffin papers.
2. In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat together bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter. Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture just until moistened. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
3. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and cinnamon. Cut in 1 tablespoon butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Sprinkle topping over muffins.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.

I don't want to be a tightwad or a spendthrift. I want to be smart. I want to celebrate life, to surround myself with beauty, and to be content in whatever state I am in. I want to manage my finances, to organize my routine, and to use my possessions wisely. I want to budget resources and time, to help others, and to bring glory to God. --- by Cynthia Yates
