Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 10 muffin cups with paper liners.

To make the streusel, in a medium sized bowl, stir together walnuts, oats, brown sugar, flour, baking powder and salt, until well combined. Knead in the butter using your fingertips until well combined and clumpy; set aside

To make the muffins, in a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together banana, egg, milk, butter, brown sugar and vanilla until well combined; whisk in dry ingredients until just combined.
Divide batter into muffin cups and evenly top with the prepared crumb topping. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown and well risen. Cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
