Banana-Spice Muffins with Streusel Topping
Muffins aren’t new to the low-fat scene—every coffee shop has them. These muffins taste great and they're the healthier option when you're craving a sweet pastry. The best part is you can make them all yourself.
FOR THE BATTER, combine:
FOR THE STREUSEL, stir:
Preheat oven to 400°. Line a muffin pan with paper or foil liners, then coat with nonstick spray.
For the batter, combine flour, granulated sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, cardamom, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl.
Whisk together yogurt, banana, egg yolks, and 3 Tbsp. butter in a bowl until smooth, then stir into dry ingredients to combine.
Whip egg whites in a bowl with a hand mixer until stiff peaks form; fold into batter. Fill each well of the muffin tin three-quarters full.
For the streusel, stir walnuts, flour, brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Divide evenly among muffins. Bake muffins until a toothpick inserted in the centers comes out clean, about 15–20 minutes. Serve warm.
