Summer Squash Muffins

We've had an abundance of yellow squash from our garden this year....yay!!  As I was searching online for recipes to help me use all of this squash up, I came across a Summer Squash Bread recipe from allrecipes.  Now, I'll admit that I was skeptical about this recipe at first.  But after reading through the reviews, I decided to give it a try.   
As you can see, I made mine into muffins instead of bread loaves.  The verdict?!  My husband and I both loved them, but my kids....well, not so much!  There is hope though.  My 2-year-old nephew tried one and loved it too!  I will definitely be making more (we've still got lots of squash!).  My plan is to freeze them, then I can have a treat whenever I like.

In the comments section of the recipe, someone mentioned adding a crumb topping before baking.  YUM!!  I obviously did this (1 c. brown sugar, 3/4 c. flour, 2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 c. butter), and made a few other changes too.  Instead of using 1 cup of vegetable oil like the recipe calls for,  I used 1/2 c. vegetable oil and 1/2 c. applesauce.  I also left out the nutmeg, and added 1 mashed banana to mine.
