These banana muffins are the best thing to do with bananas that are going a little too ripe.  They taste better than banana bread and they are just the right size, if you eat two.  When they come out of the oven, just place a little butter in the middle and wow!  They will hit the spot.  Of course the topping is great; it has a little crunch.  Brown sugar and cinnamon always go so good together.  Make some for today and then they will be ready for breakfast in the morning.  That is if there are any left.  The original recipe is half the amount, but I have a few people that I need to feed and so I did double the recipe and it made 24 muffins.  I didn’t put the pecans in because I have a few that won’t eat them.  However I do love them, so next time I will make the same amount and put twelve without pecans and twelve with pecans.  Also you could add a few mini chocolate chips to them.  I thought I would be healthy today and not add chocolate chips.  All that brown sugar on top, that’s what makes them healthy, right?  They are just a great muffin and good to have around anytime of the day.
