Banana Nut Streusel Muffins

These muffins are great for a snack or for breakfast.  They are moist and delicious.  The streusel topping add the perfect amount of texture.  I hope you enjoy them.

1/4 cup walnuts
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup mashed ripe bananas
3/4 cup milk
3 TBS vegetable oil
1/2 tsp.vanilla
1 egg

6 TBS. instant oats
5 TBS flour
3 TBS brown sugar
3 TBS melted butter
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Place the walnuts in a small saute pan over medium heat.  Stir continually until oils begin to be released from the nuts and they turn a golden brown.  Set aside to cool.

In a mixing bowl combine the flours, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.  

In another bowl combine the bananas, milk, oil, vanilla and egg.

Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture and stir until all the ingredients are combined.  Chop the toasted walnuts and fold them into the batter.

Spoon the batter into greased muffin tins to about 2/3 full.  

To prepare the streusel, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon together.  Then add melted butted and stir well.  Sprinkle over the batter.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
