Recipe For Banana Walnut Crumb Muffin

Healthy Treat: Banana Crumb Muffins

Fresh fruits are a little sparse in these cold Winter months, so I've been buying more bananas since my beloved berries are out of season. Last week I picked up a few too many, and they started getting brown before my family had a chance to eat them. So I decided to make lemonade out of lemons, or rather banana muffins out of overripe bananas. The crumb topping is what makes these muffins taste like dessert. Savor a warm muffin with some hot mulled wine in the evening, or serve them at your New Year's Day brunch.
