cinnamon banana bread muffins

We got home yesterday from a beach/Disneyland trip and I had some extra ripe bananas waiting for me.  After a quick search I found this recipe and I'm sure glad I tried it.  It was a huge hit.  The insides are incredibly soft and delicious.  Fantastic recipe and I didn't even put the cinnamon sugar topping on top.  Make a double batch. :)

cinnamon banana bread muffins (together as a family)
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
2 large eggs
2/3 cup mashed banana (about 2 small bananas)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

cinnamon and sugar topping
3 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Heat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray bottoms only of 12 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray (or use paper lines like I did).  
In a medium bowl, combine the sugar, oil, eggs and stir with wire whisk.  Add in bananas and vanilla, whisk until combined.
Add in flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon and stir together until just combined.
Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.  Each muffin cup will be almost to the top.  About 3/4 full.  Bake 17-21 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean and muffins are high and rounded on top.
Remove muffins from pan to a cooling rack.
For the cinnamon and sugar topping combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.  Put melted butter in a separate small bowl.  Dip muffin tops into melted butter and then into cinnamon-sugar.  Serve warm or let cool.
