So let’s check out how to make these amazingly delicious banana, chocolate chip muffins topped with peanut butter streusel.

But first, thank you so much for stopping by!

Here’s how to make it.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

For the Muffins:

In a large mixing bowl, add flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, egg (beaten), canola oil, and milk.

Mix together just enough to form a batter (don’t beat until smooth).

Next,

to the mixing bowl add mini chocolate chips and,

mashed bananas.

Gently stir together.

Then…

…spoon the batter into a lined muffin tin.  Fill each muffin liner about two thirds full.

Set aside for just a moment.

For the Streusel:

In a medium size bowl, add flour, brown sugar, cold butter, and chunky peanut butter.

Using a fork, cut  (or smash) the butter into the mixture until small crumbles form.

Top the muffins evenly with streusel and…

…bake in a preheated oven until done (about 20 to 25 minutes).

Test the doneness by inserting a toothpick into the middle of one of the muffins; if it comes out clean then it should be done.

Let cool before serving.

Garnish with mini chocolate chips.

Then…

…peel back the paper liner and…

…enjoy.
