Banana Muffins with Peanut Streusel

I love seeing muffins that have streusel but for some reason I rarely make them. I think there may have been a streusel mishap back in the day that kept me from doing it more often. Or maybe I kept telling myself - unnecessary calories. I can be a killjoy.

I absolutely adore the streusel on these muffins and excitedly watched as they rose in the oven.

Banana Muffins with Peanut Streusel

1/2 cup peanuts
2/3 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
dash or 2 of cinnamon
4 tablespoons butter, melted

190 grams flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly ground 
1 1/2 cups mashed banana
2/3 cup sugar
6 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons milk or water
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla


Chop the peanuts, toss with flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Pour in the melted butter. The mixture should be clumpy. If it's too wet, add a little more flour. 

Line a muffin pan. Preheat oven to 425 F. 

Mix flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. Set aside. Mix banana, sugar, oil, and milk or water. Add in the egg and vanilla. 

Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just incorporated and there are no more streaks of flour. 

Divide the batter among 11 to 12 muffin wells. Top with streusel. 

Bake for 5 minutes then lower the oven temperature to 350 F. Bake an additional 10-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the muffin comes out clean.

  1. Peanut streusel sounds fantastic!!!

  2. Peanut streusel sounds like a wonderful addition to some tasty banana muffins!

  3. I have the same love/hate relationship with streusel. I love to see/eat them but they always seem like too much effort. But just look at those crunchy muffin tops! They are worth it.
