How do you put the crumble on top of the muffins?

I recommend using your hands to crumble the streusel mixture on top of the muffins. It creates the next texture and ensures you get those big chunks of streusel in there that we all love!

Why are my banana muffins dense?

There may be too much leavening agent in the muffins causing them to rise and then collapse. Also, be sure to spread out the streusel evenly among the muffins, too much will weigh them down and stop them from rising!

What is the secret to making moist and fluffy muffins?

Do not over stir the batter, and make sure you allow the eggs, protein shake, and butter to sit out at room temp before preparing! This will allow for the muffins to bake well and stay light, airy, and moist!

What is the difference between banana bread and banana cake?

Banana bread is a bit denser than a banana cake. Imagine a slice of bread, versus a slice of cake. The cake is a bit airier, while a slice of bread is more firm. Both are delicious desserts, either way, you slice it… ha 😉

How do I know if my bananas are ripe enough for banana bread?

The riper banana is the sweeter it gets! They are better than the darker they become, they need at least a few speckles, but if they are completely black that is actually perfect!
