  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 16 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Combine 2 cups flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Combine white sugar, melted butter, and eggs in another bowl; whisk until smooth. Mix in bananas, cranberries, and 1/2 cup walnuts. Fold in flour mixture and mix until a lumpy batter forms.
  4. Spoon batter into lined cups, filling each 3/4 full.
  5. Mix brown sugar and 3 tablespoons flour in a small bowl. Cut in cubed butter with a pastry cutter or two knives until pea-sized crumbles form. Mix in 1/3 cup walnuts.
  6. Sprinkle walnut crumble over batter.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:

Nice and moist, good flavor. I did not have enough banana so I added applesauce to make up the difference. My husband even likes these!

Excellent. Made as written.

Really delicious but a little too sweet. I made it with truvia brown sugar blend on top and pecans, so that could be the reason. I would definitely make them again after cutting back on the suga...

These turned out beautifully! Moist with just the right amount of spice. The crunchy topping really set it above a plain banana muffin.

these muffins are amazing?

I would use less flour with the crumble topping. If it doesn't get mixed well with the butter/sugar combo, it cooks as adusty top that gets inhaled when eating.
