banana muffin Recipe @pinch

These banana muffins are heavenly. The natural sweetness from the very ripe bananas shines bright. We loved the crunch from the sweet and slightly spiced topping. Each bite is filled with goodness thanks to the soft banana muffin, the sweetness of the ripe bananas, and the topping that adds a touch of texture. For the best banana flavor, make sure to use very ripe bananas. Their peels should be covered with dark brown, if not black, specks. If the bananas are not ripe enough, the muffins will taste no better than potato muffins. Perfect for breakfast, brunch, or any time of day and night.
