banana oatmeal coffee cake with cinnamon streusel

in my humble opinion, for breakfast or brunch you really can’t beat a good coffee cake. i grew up going to a summer camp that served the most amazing coffee cake every sunday. ever since i have been in love with and searching for the perfect coffee cake.
recently, i had a random thought that coffee cake with bananas would be THE most perfect thing that day. so i scoured a few places to find a little assistance, and LO i have created a glorious coffee cake WITH bananas (the crowd wildly cheers).
i tested it out on one of my besties and her little one, totaling 2 big kids and 2 toddlers who loved it. victory.
