Hello there. While eating my breakfast one morning, i noticed 3 over-ripened bananas sitting on my counter (my mother was going to toss them!).. so i decided to bake them into more muffins. Last time i made these muffins i used under-ripened bananas. [side note: The taste difference between under-ripened and over-ripened in baking was really the same]. I wanted to try something different, so i edited THIS recipe that i made a few weeks ago to include a topping. My favorite breakfast as a kid was Honey nut cheerios with slices of bananas. So this is a bit of a shout-out to my childhood. :)
honey nut cheerios
Banana muffin batter from this recipe
First change: I used a regular muffin tin this time.
Second change: I crushed up about 1 cup of honey nut cheerios, and mixed in about 1/4 cup of brown sugar and about 2 -3 tablespoons of butter (it should have a sort of crumbly but sticky consistency) and sprinkled that mixture on top!
Not too bad for cell phone photos. My camera ran out of batteries!
They got very good feedback. :) The brown sugar melted on top making it knd of like a hardened glaze, and the cheerios were crunchy and tasted so yummy. I want to put more toppings on my muffins. So many choices!
