Have too many bananas lying around and sick of banana bread? Try these healthy banana crumb muffins!

I am seriously “banana bread-ed” out. I have been baking and eating so much of it. In a desperate attempt to put my browned bananas to use, I came up with this fun recipe. My little mess around in the kitchen turned out to be one of my family’s favorite muffin recipe! I have been receiving tons of messages on Instagram about how good these are. A must bake in my book.

This fun take on banana bread is truly tasty and a family favorite. I love eating these with yogurt in the morning and even as a little afternoon pick me up snack. They only take 15 minutes to prep and 20 – 25 minutes to cook. So simple and easy! Plus the fluff factor on these guys is unreal.

One of the best things about these muffins is the crumb topping! It is light, healthy, sweet and melts in your mouth. Just look at it…. how delicious!!

How to make homemade oat flour?

You do not need to buy oat flour at the grocery store for a totally crazy price to make these muffins. I all for saving money and connivence! All you need is rolled oats and a blender.

Simply blend your favorite brand of rolled oats in a blender for around 20 to 30 seconds until smooth. It should be a “flour” consistency. One of the best baking hacks!

How to store these fluffy muffins?

I absolutely LOVE to stock up on these bad boys. They are the perfect breakfast or snack staple. For best results, store in a covered container for 2 – 4 days at room temperature. Or freeze up to 2 months in an airtight ziplock bag or container.

    Hi Tati! Thanks for this recipe! Are there any alternatives for the coconut oil, coconut sugar and almond flour? It’s abit tricky to get them here for me

      Hi! I would use light brown sugar for coconut sugar, butter for the coconut oil, and regular all-purpose or gluten-free flour for almond flour!

    These were hands down the best banana muffins I’ve made. Super easy to follow with healthy ingredients. They turned out incredibly moist and fluffy! The cinnamon crumble adds that extra level of flavour. Will definitely be making these again!
