Banana Orange Streusel Muffins

These muffins have a pleasant flavor, soft texture, and crunchy streusel. I combined two recipes – the Sunrise Banana Muffins from the No Guesswork Cookbook, and Carole’s Favorite Streusel from Great Coffee Cakes, Sticky Buns, Muffins, and More. I must confess they’re not the best muffins we’ve ever made, but they’re yummy.

Banana Orange Streusel Muffins


2 eggs

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

1/3 cup oil

1/3 cup honey

2 T. buttermilk, milk, or soy milk

3 bananas, mashed

2 T. orange juice concentrate

1/2 tsp. grated orange zest

2 cups whole wheat flour

1 T. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. cinnamon


3 T. butter, melted

1/2 cup flour

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

1/8 tsp. baking powder

1/8 tsp. salt

1/4 cup pecans, finely chopped

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 12-cup muffin pan.

2. Whisk first eight muffin ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.

4. In a small bowl, combine the struesel ingredients.

5. Add flour mixture to banana mixture. Mix until just blended – don’t overmix! Pour into prepared muffin pan. Top with streusel.

6. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean. Enjoy!
