Sometimes you just have to make him his favourite muffins.
1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups mashed banana (3-4 bananas)
1/2 cup melted butter
Mix topping ingredients together and set aside.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Beat egg, mashed banana and melted butter. Now add banana mixture to dry ingredients. Stir until just moistened. The batter will be thick.
Spray muffin tins or line the tin with papers.
Put a heaping tablespoon of batter in each then about a teaspoon of streusel.
Top with more batter then sprinkle on the remaining streusel.
I used to make these with all the streusel on top which looked really good, but I found most of it would fall off. This way, putting some in the middle you keep all the flavour.
Bake at 375 F for 20-25 minutes.
Makes 12 very moist muffins
