The middle kids goes on her first Girl Scout camping trip this weekend, and I always worry that she’s not going to eat when I’m not around. Just kidding, this kid eats everything. She was even brave enough to try raw oysters when she was six years old! What a trooper.
I figured I should send her with some homemade treats, since I’m sure (hoping) that she will miss me while she is having a blast with her troop. I happened to have some overripe bananas that needed some attention. This recipe calls for four, yes four, overripe bananas. And it just so happened that I had that many. I think in the future I’ll have to plan ahead or just half the cinnamon streusel banana muffin recipe.

The streusel is the fun part of the cinnamon streusel banana muffins. In a perfect world, the kids would prefer frosting, which turns the muffins into cupcakes. But I personally feel that cupcakes would be a messy pain on a camping trip with kids and I don’t want the troop leader to hate me. If these muffins were staying home, I’d pile on the streusel, but since they will be traveling, I used a light hand with the amount I put on, about a tablespoon on each muffin.
