Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins with a Streusel Topping

Always a dilemma to figure out what to do with all of those overly ripe bananas!  My normal go-to would be a banana bread.  But today I decided to add a couple of my favorites ~ chocolate chips and cinnamon ~ and make muffins!

The results were better than I could have hoped!

Ingredients (for 12 muffins):
1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
4 small bananas or 3 large bananas, mashed
1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

Streusel Topping
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon cold butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a large bowl, mix together bananas and melted butter

Stir in sugar, egg, and vanilla.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.  Add to the banana mixture and stir only until combined.  Add chocolate chips.

Spoon into paper lined muffin pan.  
Make streusel topping
 Mix together brown sugar, flour, cinnamon.  Cut in butter until crumbs are formed.
Sprinkle the muffins with the topping.

Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly browned.

Cool and enjoy

Freezes well!  ♥
