    Step 1

    Preheat your oven @ 375 F. Add your 1 1/2 cup flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, & 3/4 tsp cinnamon in a bowl and mix 2gether.

    Step 2

    Smash your bananas, I do it in a measuring cut and I just use a fork. But you can do it how it works best for you

    Step 3

    Bananas all smashed

    In another bowl, add your oil

    Step 5

    Vanilla extract

    Step 9

    Your granulated, and brown sugar. And whisk together.

    Step 10

    Add your flour mixture until just combined. Don't over mix. If you like to add walnuts, or pecans etc you can do that it point.

    Step 11

    Should look like these when its mixed. Put aside and now we are ready to make the topping, or you can bake at this point without the crumb topping

    Step 12

    In a bowl add 2 tablespoons flour,

    Step 13

    1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

    Step 14

    1/4 cup brown sugar, or less if you don't want it too sweet. Mix together.

    Step 15

    Add cold butter, and cut into mixture until it resembles coarse cornmeal. I use a fork to do this, but use whatever works for you.

    Step 16

    Should look like these

    Step 17

    I like to put paper baking cups in the tins

    Step 18

    Add your batter, this recipes makes 12 muffins

    Step 19

    Add your topping crumble

    Step 20

    Put in oven. Bake 20 mins, or until toothpick comes out clean. Every oven is different so I would probably check them around 18 mins

    Step 21

    Let cool

    Step 22

    And enjoy!
