Topped with a sweet maple pecan streusel, these fluffy Banana Nut Muffins are a healthy breakfast or snack option. They’re super easy to make from scratch with just 10 minutes of prep time!


For the Muffins

  • 2 C All-purpose flour
  • 1 C Sugar
  • 4 tsp Baking powder
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ½ C Unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ C Milk
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • ¾ C Bananas, mashed
  • 2 tbsp Maple syrup

For the Streusel

  • 1 bag Sahale Maple Pecan Glazed mix (4 oz bag)
  • 2 tbsp All-purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp Unsalted butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Grease a muffin pan with Crisco or baking spray.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Then set this mixture aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the egg using a whisk until light and fluffy. Add melted butter and whisk together with the egg. Continue to add milk, vanilla extract, mashed bananas and maple syrup. Whisk everything together until smooth.
  4. Slowly pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and use a wooden spoon to mix just until combined.
  5. Prepare the streusel. Use a food processor to pulse the Sahale mix into smaller pieces; it will be crumbles with a few large pieces left.
  6. Combine Sahale mix and flour in a microwave-safe bowl. Add butter on top and microwave for 30 seconds. Remove from microwave and use a knife and fork to cut the butter into the dry ingredients. You should end up with a clumpy topping.
  7. Fill your muffin tin all the way to the top with batter, dividing between all 12 muffin cups. Sprinkle streusel on top. Bake for 5 minutes at 425° F and then reduce heat to 350° F and bake for another 16-20 minutes. Do not open the oven for at least 15 minutes; you will see how nicely the muffins rise. Baking times will vary by oven.
  8. Check your muffins for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center of the muffin. If your toothpick comes out clean, your muffin is done. Allow muffins to cool completely in the pan. You can also cool on a wire rack, but you want to allow them to cool enough to remove and transport them out of the pan.
