Banana-Nut Streusel Muffins

2 cups of all- purpose flour
1 cup of skim milk
¾ cup of mashed bananas
1/3 cup of packed brown sugar
 1/3 of white sugar
1 tbsp of baking powder
½ tsp of salt       
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/3 cup of canola/vegetable oil
½ cup of chopped walnuts
2 tbsp of molasses
1 tsp of vanilla extract

Streusel Topping
¼ cup of brown sugar
2 tbsp of all-purpose flour
1 tsp of cinnamon
3 tbsp of butter

Streusel Topping Instructions:
Mix all toppings ingredients together in a small bowl, except for nuts. Mix until topping is light and crumbly then mix in nuts, set aside.

Muffin Instructions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Grease a 12 cup muffin pan or line with paper muffin cups then set aside.
In a large bowl sift flour, sugars, baking powder and salt.  Make a well in the center of the flour mix and set aside.
In, a medium bowl mix together milk, egg, molasses, oil, bananas, and vanilla.  Add the mixture into the flour well and mix all ingredients together. (Don’t over mix.) Then mix in nuts.
Use an ice cream scope and evenly scope the batter into muffin pan’s cups. Sprinkle a layer of the Streusel topping on top of the batter. Gently tap topping into batter twice with the back of a teaspoon.
Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. (Insert a wooden toothpick into the center of muffins if comes out clean then muffins are done.)
Let muffins rest for 5 minutes then serve.
