My adults boys are still living at home and with their busy college and work schedules, it’s rare that we get to eat breakfast together. I miss being together for breakfast, so I initiated mandatory Sunday breakfast.

My family is crazy about my Blueberry Streusel Muffins and they were on the menu last Sunday.  However, when I got up Sunday morning there was one lonely banana sitting on the counter that was past it’s prime.

So I decided to change up the muffin recipe and add a banana. There were also some raspberries in the fridge that needed to be used up. So I turned my blueberry muffins into raspberry banana muffins.

When I’m making muffins I always use a scoop. It’s less messy and all the muffins bake up the same size. A #16 scoop is the perfect size for muffins. I’m also in love with the If You Care Muffin Papers. They peel away from the muffins easily and you don’t lose any muffin on the paper.

My boys loved these Raspberry Banana Streusel Muffins. They were definitely worth waking up for. I’m sure your family will love them too.

Streusel Topping

  • 4 tablespoons sugar

Preheat oven to 350º. Lightly grease a muffin tin with cooking spray or vegetable oil, or line with paper muffin liners.

Divide batter evenly into 12 muffin cups. Sprinkle muffins with streusel topping.
