    1. Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas mark 5. Lightly grease 10 muffin cups, or line with paper bun cases.
    2. Whisk 180g sifted wholemeal flour with bicarbonate of soda, baking powder, salt and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a large bowl. Mix together mashed bananas, 120g melted butter, egg, sugar and vanilla in a separate bowl. Gently fold banana mixture into dry ingredients until just moistened. Spoon mixture into prepared muffin cups, filling them about 3/4 full.
    3. For the streusel topping: Mix dark brown sugar with 2 tablespoons wholemeal flour and cinnamon in a bowl. Mash 1 tablespoon butter into mixture with a fork until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Sprinkle topping over muffins.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until a skewer inserted into the centre of a muffin comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
