Apple Banana Crumb Muffins

I love to make these muffins when I have just one overripe banana on hand. I also take an apple and core it. Then I shred it with the peel using my cheese grater. Here's the recipe:

Apple Banana Crumb Muffins
1 1/2 cups flour
1tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 overripe banana, mashed (2 will work also.)
1 large apple, cored and grated (peel on.)
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
Crumb Topping:
2 TBS flour
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1TBS Butter, cold

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.  In another bowl, mix together the banana, grated apple, sugar, egg, and melted butter.  Stir the fruit mixture into the flour mixture until moistened.  Spoon batter into muffin cups. (It makes 10-12 muffins.)

For crumb topping, mix together the brown sugar, 2TBS flour, and cinnamon.  Cut in 1 TBS butter with a fork until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.  Generously sprinkle topping over the muffins.

Bake for 18-20 minutes. ( about 15 for high altitude.)
