Hi Nicole!! The topping is something a little different to a standard muffin, they should love it!

Cant wait to give them a try! Thought I might add a tip i found a while back… if you dont have buttermilk you can use normal milk (full cream or skim) and add 2 teaspoons of white vinegar. Leave it for a few minutes and use as a replacement! Thanks for the recipe!

my tip is if you dont feel like baking with old bananas when u have them, mush them up and freeze them in 1 or 1/2 cup measures. I use zip lock bags, and just grab bags out as i need them. when thawed are absolutely perfect for baking
