For the Crumble Topping:

  • ¼ cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp butter

For the Muffins:

  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ¾ cup oat flour
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp sea salt


  • Heat the oven to 350ºF. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin and set aside.
  • Prepare the streusel topping by stirring together flour, sugar, and cinnamon. Cut in butter until it is pea-sized and the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the mashed bananas, milk, maple syrup coconut oil and egg.
  • Add the dry ingredients directly into the bowl with the wet and whisk to thoroughly combine.
  • Fill each muffin cup ¾ of the way. Press about a tablespoon of the crumble topping onto the top of each muffin.
  • Bake on the center rack for 20-24 minutes until the center springs back when touched lightly or when a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Cool in the muffin tin for 2 - 3 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and cool completely or they will not set well and fall apart.
