1. Preheat oven on Convection Bake at 350°F with the rack in the lower position. Lightly coat a six-cup muffin pan with the cooking spray; reserve.

2. Combine the ingredients for the crumb topping in a small bowl and mash with a fork or clean hand, until the butter is evenly distributed.  Set aside.

3. For the muffin batter, put the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a small bowl and stir to combine.

4. In a separate bowl, using a hand mixer on medium speed, mix the banana, brown sugar, milk, oil and egg until thoroughly combined. Add the dry ingredients and nuts and mix with a fork until just combined.

5. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups and sprinkle the crumb topping evenly over each.

6. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean. Let muffins cool in pan for 5 minutes, then turn onto a wire rack to cool completely.
