Banana Muesli Muffins with Muesli Streusel Topping
Banana muesli muffins with a muesli streusel topping are the perfect way to start any morning...even Mondays ;) They are easy to make, full of flavor, and are a great guilt-free treat.
Muesli Streusel Toppsing
1/2 cup (100 g) unpacked brown sugar
1/3 cup (32 g) old fashioned oats
1/4 cup (60-70 g) mixed sunflower seeds, pepitas, chopped almonds,dried cranberries, and golden raisins
2 tablespoon whole wheat flour
2 tablespoon ground flaxseed
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons melted butter, unsalted
Banana Muesli Muffins
1/2 cup (120 mL) buttermilk
1 large egg
1/4 cup (50 g) coconut oil
1 1/2 cup (450 g) roasted and mashed bananas (about 3 large)*
1/3 cup (67 g) granulated sugar
1 cup (95 g) oat bran or ground oats
1 cup (125 g) all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (57 g) whole wheat flour
1/3 (70 g) cup mixed sunflower seeds, pepitas, chopped almonds,dried cranberries, and golden raisins
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 375 F and line a muffin tin with paper liners.
Mix all the ingredients for the streusel together in a small bowl until well combined and varied crumb sizes form. Set aside.
Mix together the buttermilk, egg, oil and roasted mashed bananas together in a bowl until well combined. Set aside.
In another bowl, mix together the sugar, oat bran or ground oats, flours, seed & fruit mix, baking powder and baking soda together.
Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Do not overmix, lumps are our friends.
Use an ice cream scoop to fill a lined muffin pan with the batter (you want the pan to be pretty full, but not overflowing, 3/4 of the way full). Evenly sprinkle the muffins with the topping and gently press down so they stick to the batter.
Bake for about 20 - 22 minutes, or until a golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with a couple of crumbs sticking to it. It took exactly 20 minutes for my muffins.
You can also use very ripe bananas, but I personally prefer the taste of roasted bananas in this muffin. *Make it vegan!: These muffins also translates well for vegan recipes. Swap out the buttermilk for almond or coconut milk and replace the butter with a vegan alternative (I used earth Balance Vegan Buttery Sticks)
