Mini Banana Muffins

Anything mini is on my mind right now. Mini fingers and toes and tiny little eye lashes and a nose. So it is fitting that making mini muffins was right up my alley. 
My sister and brother in law recently visited from Seattle. We had a lovely brunch with my parents and all got to marvel at how small we start when we come into this world. 
We also got to eat, laugh, hug and we had muffins. 
What to do with left over bananas.... muffins of course. I added browned butter and made a crumb topping to add to the fun. 
Super easy and quick to make while the "mini" was sleeping. 
The crumb topping added a nice texture on top. You could also add walnuts or pecans. You could even go wild with blueberries or chocolate. Banana muffins are a blank slate for creativity and these are so easy to make you could whip them up for a post Thanksgiving brunch or over a long lazy weekend. So get going!
