Menu Board Monday Edition #15 : Chocolate Banana Streusel Muffins

Go HERE to enter the latest giveaway! I will be drawing the winner this weekend!

Happy Monday, my friends!  Wow! I can't believe it's already Monday again!  Last week was a great week and just seemed to fly by!  I have spent alot of time in the kitchen this past week, walking past 3 huge bunches of bananas several times a day.  So, for today's edition of Menu Board Monday, I thought I'd do something a bit different... Instead of a big meal, I'm simply hi-liting a great Muffin that could become the main spotlight of your "breakfast for dinner".  On my menu board, I have "breakfast for dinner" at least 4 times a month.  It's something we thoroughly enjoy! 
The first thing that comes to my mind when I think breakfast is pancakes or waffles.  But for our breakfast for dinner tonight, we are having Chocolate Banana Streusel Muffins, along with fresh cut cantaloupe and breakfast sausage...
This is a recipe that my mom and I made when I was in elementary school.  It came off of a Malt-O-Meal Hot Cereal box.  It uses Chocolate Malt O Meal Hot Cereal.  For the longest time, our store quit carrying this and I was sad... but when I saw it last week while I was grocery shopping I just HAD to grab a box!  My mouth has been watering for these muffins ever since.... they have just the perfect chocolate flavor with the moisture from the bananas and a crunchy streusel topping.  I hope you enjoy them!

Chocolate Banana Streusel Muffins
From Cupboard to Cupboard
printable recipe

1 1/3 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup chocolate Malt-O-Meal Hot Cereal
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 egg
2 bananas, mashed

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Combine flour & sugar. Cut in butter- reserve 1/2 cup for topping.  In same bowl add muffin ingredients.  Stir until moistened.  Spoon into greased or paper-lined muffin tins, filling the cups 2/3 full.  Sprinkle with reserved streusel mixture.  Bake 18-22 minutes or until lightly browned.  Let stand 5 minutes and remove from pan onto wire rack. 

*I doubled this recipe because I have soooo many bananas to use.  I got 36 muffins out of the recipe.  So you should get 12-18 muffins, depending on how full you fill your cups and your altitude.*

Happy Cooking!
