Banana Nut Crunch Cupcake Topping

26 May

Happy Thursday!

Need a quick trick to spice up your Vanilla cupcakes? How about a Banana Nut Crunch topping that bakes right into your delicious cupcake?

This topping is so simple and turns a traditional vanilla cupcake into a yummy banana treat.

Banana Nut Crunch Cupcake - Unfrosted

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 Cups of Pecans
  • 1 Banana
  • 2 Cups of Dried Banana Chips
  • ½ cup of honey granola
  • 1 tbs of cinnamon
  • 2 tbs of Brown Sugar

What to do:

  1. Using a food processor, grind the pecans to small little chunks
  2. Slice your banana into small cubes
  3. Place your dried banana chips in a ziplock bag and lightly crush them with the palm of your hand. You do not want these pieces too small.
  4. Combine a all of your ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix well
  5. After you have poured the batter for your vanilla cupcakes – place a spoonful of the topping mixture on top of each unbaked cupcake
  6. Bake according to your cupcake recipe
  7. When your cupcakes are done baking, the mixture will be baked on top of your Vanilla cupcake! Crunchy and delicious!  I like to top these with Peanut Butter or Cream Cheese Frosting!

Enjoy!

Xoxo, Jill
