Banana Cinnamon Rolls

My oh my are these amazing! Banana Cinnamon rolls - have ya ever heard ov' such a thing? Hope you indulge and make some too.
I had some banana that were screaming" bake me, bake me!" So I baked them! I first made these "good for you cookies"... well no one liked them. They sounded good, but the texture was like fruit cake - yuck! So I moved on to something that is not so good for you. These lovely muffins.
I baked these in my Demarle muffin mold. You can use paper liners if you want... but you sure don't have to. I have made notes in the recipe below of what to do if using your Demarle molds.
Look at how clean they came out of the pan. Just push up from the bottom a bit and out comes that little beauty. Super duper great! The more I use these molds and trays the more I love them.

Banana Cinnamon Rolls
Muffin Batter:
2 eggs
1/4 c oil
3/4 c sugar
1 c mashed banas (about 3)
1 c flour
2 T cornstarch
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon (I always add more) Love cinnamon
1 /4 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

Cinnamon sugar topping swirl:
2 T unsalted butter, melted
1/4 c brown sugar packed
1 T cinnamon
1 4 tsp. nutmeg

Cream Cheese Icing (I don't care for this, but my family did)
2 oz cream cheese softened
1/2 c powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract (use clear vanilla for white frosting, as the brown will discolor the frosting)
1/2 - 1 T milk, plus more if needed

Preheat oven to 350 (340 for Demarle molds) degrees. Grease and or line muffing tin; (or do nothing to your Demarle fold); set aside. Whisk together eggs, oil, sugar and bananas till well blended. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Divide batter evenly between 12 muffin cups, filling about 2/3 full. Combine the topping ingredients and divide between the muffin cups. use a toothpick and swirl slightly. Bake for 22-24 (24 if using Demarle) minutes or until the top springs back when lightly touched. Allow to cool for a few minutes (10 minutes if using Demarle)  and carefully remove from pan. Cool completely and drizzle with cream cheese icing. Refrigerate any leftovers muffins.
Bake some Muffins!
