Cinnamon crumble banana bread

May 10, 2020

It’s been a while since I baked up a loaf and I was craving something sweet & decadent. This cinnamon crumble banana bread is delicious and that crumble is EVERYTHING! There’s not much sugar in the recipe but its all good because the crumble topping really sweetens up this loaf. Makes 10 servings at 4SP each on both blue & purple and 5SP on green when following MyWW.

Cinnamon crumble banana bread
Recipe type: Baking
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 10
4SP blue & purple, 5SP green/4PP
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 large mashed bananas
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • ¼ cup milk *I used 1%
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1.5 tsp cinnmaon
  • ¼ cup flour
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp light butter, softened
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and spray a regular size 9x5 loaf pan with some non stick spray.
  2. In a bowl whisk eggs and add in the 2 Tbsp of brown sugar, mix in the mashed bananas, apple sauce, milk and vanilla.
  3. Stir in the flour, baking powder and cinnamon, mix well and then pour batter into the loaf pan.
  4. In a small bowl mix the ¼ cup flour, ¼ cup brown sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon together, add to the softened butter and mix till a crumb forms, if it is still too sticky try adding a bit more flour.
  5. Sprinkle the crumble over top of the batter and then bake in the oven for 50 minutes, check that the loaf under all the crumble is baked through.
  6. Let cool then carefully cut into 10 slices, yes the crumble can be tricky and you will likely lose some while cutting into pieces but I just added my fallen pieces to my serving.

      The recipe calls for 2 bananas so you might make it too dense if you use all 3

    Hi, I have tried this recipe a couple of times and it always come out dense and chewy. I wonder what I am doing wrong? When you write 1.5 cups of flour does it mean 1 cup and a half? Looking forward to hearing from you. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Lulie, I’m so sorry it is coming out that way, I’m not to sure why, all my loaves are a little denser than say a store bought simply due to ingredients used but this one was not too dense, yes 1.5 is one and a half

    Hi Kate, my family and I love this loaf, although it doesn’t rise much and is very dense. Doesn’t stop us from inhaling it! I am wondering if it is just a very dense chewy loaf, or I am doing something wrong? It appears to bake beautifully when in the oven, but once I pull it out, after the time required, it is deflates and …is dense. Thank you!

      Hi Lisa, I am so glad you all enjoy it.. It is dense but not overly, my pictures show that it did rise a bit for me.. Most of my loaves/muffins will deflate after baking simply due to the ingredients you are swapping out like butter/oils for apple sauce/banana but overall I found this loaf not dense as some of my others, it is hard to say what happened without being there

    I don’t know if I did something wrong or what here, but this was just bad. It was suuuupper wet, super dense and just extremely tasteless.

      Hi Ashlee, I am so sorry to hear that ๐Ÿ™ it is so hard for me to know what went wrong without being there… most of my loaves/muffins are denser than say a store-bought just due to the ingredients used but I did not find this particular one that dense, and I loved the flavor, but we are all different and while I aim to please all I simply can’t so maybe it just comes down to it wasn’t for you
