All I Can Say is "Yummy!!!"

I'll call these "Shawna's Apple Banana Crumb Bakery Muffins" How's that?

I'm sorry that many of you {including me} are striving to lose weight right about now. So to keep the playing field level...I'm going to give you this AWESOME muffin recipe!! That way I won't be the only one struggling not to make them.

See how great I am? :)

These are just plain fantastic. I found them as basic banana muffin recipe and added my magic. So here goes. Your mouth and stomach will thank me for these; so will your kids and husband. However your thighs won't.

Did I mention they have a cinnamon-and-brown-sugar streusel topping?

Shawna's Apple Banana Crumb Bakery Muffins

INGREDIENTS:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 bananas, mashed
1/2 cup of apple, chopped small, leave peel on.
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease 9 muffin cups, or line with muffin papers. {Keep this batter to 9 muffins, don't use all 12. Fill the muffin cups to the top, that way they create those wonderful bakery style muffins.}
2. In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, slightly beat the egg. Then add sugar, egg and melted butter. Fold in banana and apple. Now stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture just until moistened. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
3. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and cinnamon. Cut in 1 tablespoon butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Sprinkle topping over muffins.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.


Con mucho gusto! {You are welcome!}

So I tried to find a picture of a bakery muffin that looked as good as this one does...no luck! I guess I'm going to have to make them again tonight so I can take a picture for you all.

Shucks. What I do for my blogger friends. :)

I'm going to have to be back later when I have some new ink for my printer...I'm totally printing up the recipe. I'm watching my "caloric" intake, but if I skip lunch I should be able to have some-I mean ONE, of course!

I printed your recipe and set it aside until last night at about 8pm. Don't know why, but those muffins (your recipe) were calling to me so I made them.
Oh my, HOW DELICIOUS!!
I've got muffins wrapped for delivery to friends now. I can't leave them in my house or I will eat every last one. Thanks. These are GRRRRRREAT!!
Miss ya, Teri
