Banana Crumb Muffins

My basic thesis is that the simpler things are usually better and cheaper.  I reject that fast food or prepared food is cheaper and it is certainly not good food.  That premise denies common sense - that a company can produce food cheaper than I can.  There may be economies in bulk buying and bulk production, but every company makes a profit or goes out of business.  Every business plan attempts to add value to a product and charges for the value added. 

So make it yourself.  If you don't know how, learn.  The process of learning is rewarding and improves the quality of life.  Costco muffins are (1) not good, (2) not cheaper and (3) does not improve the quality of life. 

Banana Crumb Muffins
1 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt.
1 cup ripe banana, mashed with a fork (2 or 3 bananas)
3/4 c. sugar
1 egg lightly beaten
1/3 c. butter, melted

1/3 c. packing brown sugar
1 T. all-purpose flour
1/8 t. cinnamon
1 T. butter, melted.

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients.  Combine bananas, sugar, egg and butter and mix well.  Stir into dry ingredients.  Filled sprayed muffin cups 3/4 full.  Combine the topping ingredients.  Divide it evenly over the top of the muffin batter.  Bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until done.
