1 tsp. vanilla1 2/3 cups flour

1/2 tsp. cinnamon
For the tops of the muffins:
Mix together 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon.

2) In medium bowl, beat 2/3 cup sugar, the oil and eggs with wire whisk. Stir in bananas and vanilla. Stir in remaining muffin ingredients just until moistened. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
