Banana Crumb Muffins

I altered this recipe based on some of the comments shared, as well as my desire to include a little bit of "healthy" to the muffins (whole wheat flour).  They turn out so fluffy & yummy!  Even my husband, who doesn't like bananas or banana recipes, likes these muffins.  Enjoy!

Banana Crumb Muffins

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
3/4 tsp cinnamon
3 bananas, mashed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Lightly grease, spray with cooking spray, or line with muffin papers, 12 regular muffin cups.

In a large bowl, mix together flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon.  In another bowl, beat together bananas, sugars, egg, oil and vanilla.  Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture just until moistened.  Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.

In a small bowl, mix together 1/3 cup brown sugar, 2 tbsp flour and 1/4 tsp cinnamon.  Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.  Sprinkle topping over muffins.

Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.
