1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1. Preheat oven to 375°F and place muffins liners into your 8 mini loaf pan cavities. In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir in walnuts and set aside.
2. In a large bowl whisk together the melted butter and sugar. Whisk in egg. Stir in the vanilla and mashed banana. Add dry ingredients all at once and stir until just moistened. Do not over-mix.
3. Divide batter among muffin liners. Sprinkle crumbs (streusel topping) on each and bake 18-22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm with a cup of tea or coffee. Enjoy!
