Super quick, easy and tasty banana muffins with a hint of cinnamon and topped with almond streusel.
I happened to chance upon a fantastic banana muffin recipe and I can’t wait to tell you all about it.
This was a chance find on Pinterest. I always find that the best recipes seem to find you instead of you going on an extensive hunt for them. So anyway, you know I love my banana bread and muffins and I have shared my “All- Time Favourite” banana muffin with chocolate chunks recipe here on Nomsies Kitchen previously.
I do believe that I have now found another recipe to add to the perfect banana muffins recipe list – this super quick, easy and tasty banana muffins topped with almond streusel. It has a touch of cinnamon added in the batter too, I always love the smell of cinnamon in baked goods. I also used a mixture of wholemeal and plain flour here.
Again, with most of my favourite recipes, it is super easy to make and does not require an electric mixer. Just whisk the wet ingredients by hand and add them to the dry ingredients. What a breeze!
Maybe that is not entirely accurate as the almond streusel does require a food processor – to simplify and quicken the process. Like with most of the times when I have used streusel in a recipe, I have always pre-made the streusel in advance. I have mentioned this previously and I am emphasising it again, it is so easy to make in a big batch and freeze in the freezer. It’s even easier if you divide the batch into single portions and bag each portion up. When you need to use it for a recipe, simply take that bag out of the freezer and thaw out in the fridge overnight or on the kitchen counter for a couple of hours before using.
Small forward planning steps in the kitchen go a really long way, as does utilising your freezer to its fullest. If you don’t believe me, just ask Jaime Oliver who has launched a whole new series entitled “Money Saving Meals” and book on how to make budget friendly meals, reduce wastage and utilise your freezer to its full potential.
I hope you try this banana muffins recipe for yourself. If you are feeling indulgent, you should know that these muffins taste really good when warmed, halved and slathered with Nutella. I think it would be a good idea to just fill them with Nutella next time I bake them. Happy baking!
