Prepare muffins: Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl.


Beat bananas, white sugar, melted butter, and egg together in a separate bowl.


Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture just until combined.


Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each about 3/4 full.


Prepare crumb topping: Mix brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Use a fork to mix in 1 tablespoon butter until mixture is crumbly; sprinkle topping over muffins.


Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes.
