Preheat Cuisinart® Brick oven to 400°F on the bake setting with the rack in position “A”. Lightly coat a 6 regular muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray. Prepare the crumb topping. In a small bowl, mix the first 6 ingredients together with a fork, reserve. In a small bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon; reserve. In a large bowl, mix the banana, brown sugar, milk, oil and egg using a Cuisinart® Hand Mixer. Mix on medium speed until well blended. Add the flour mixture and nuts and mix with a fork until just mixed. Spoon evenly into prepared muffin cups and top with the reserved crumb topping. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted comes out clean. To ensure even color, turn muffin pan halfway through baking.
