Banana Yogurt Streusel Muffins

Banana Yogurt Streusel Muffins

This recipe is one of my favorites to use when I have over-ripe bananas for a quick, easy and delicious snack for my family. It has yogurt to make it healthier, has less butter and has only 1 egg. The addition of streusel which has desiccated coconut in it, btw give the muffins extra yummyness!

My husband prefers the streusel inside the muffins like in coffeecakes but I like it on top; so I make them with half a dozen with the streusel in the center and the other half with topping, and everybody’s happy! 🙂

This is an easy-peasy recipe, anyone can do it!

    How clever to make half and half – these look yummy!

    I always freeze my “pass their use-by date” bananas in foil and I always have something to bake. This recipe is next for those bananas!
