Crumble Topping:




For the Crumble Topping:

  • Use a fork to combine all ingredients in a bowl until crumbly. Set aside for now.

For the Muffins:

  • Preheat the oven to 400F. Line 8 muffin wells of a muffin tray with paper liners.
  • Mash the banana in a large bowl. Whisk in the brown sugar, egg, oil, buttermilk, and vanilla.
  • Whisk in the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and baking soda just until combined, being careful not to over-mix.
  • Divide the muffin batter between the 8 lined muffin wells. Sprinkle the crumble topping on top of each.
  • Bake until the muffins are golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
  • Cool completely before icing the muffins.

For the Icing:

  • Stir together the powdered sugar and water, adding additional water drop-by-drop as necessary to reach the right consistency.
  • Drizzle the icing on top of the cooled muffins.


  • Store these muffins covered at room temperature for up to 4 days.
  • If you don’t have buttermilk, you can substitute 1/4 cup whole milk + 1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice.
