Recipe: Banana Peanut Butter Muffins

These Banana Peanut Butter Muffins are so moist… and with just a hint of peanut butter… they’re the perfect start to a morning on the run. Why buy fast food breakfasts when you can whip up a batch of these the night before and enjoy them on the run the next morning. Not only healthy because they’re chock full of banana and peanut butter… they’re a whole lot less expensive than buying a quick muffin to-go somewhere.

This recipe is similar to my Banana Muffins but with the addition of peanut butter and buttermilk… the addition of buttermilk makes these muffins so moist and tasty… originally I also threw in some white chocolate chips… but they melted into the muffin… the taste was good… but no visible chips… so I replaced them with vanilla extract.


I use very, very ripe bananas… they’re almost black in large spots …. these bananas are very soft and mashable… the banana flavor can’t be any better.

I highly recommend using paper muffin cups to line the muffin tin… they look much prettier that way.

I hope you try this wonderful little recipe for a slightly different spin on a Banana Muffin.

All you need:

4 medium bananas, very ripe
6 tablespoons butter, melted
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla

1 ¾ teaspoons baking powder

Add the melted butter and stir completely with the fork.

Sprinkle the baking powder and baking soda over the batter, mix completely.

Add the flour and mix until the flour is completely mixed into the batter.

Bake 20-25 minutes (or until a pick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean).

This should make approximately 20 muffins.
