A real kid pleaser and a healthy snack, this moist muffin is perfect for peanut butter fans. I made this for my friend who is a diabetic. Instead of 2 cups all purpose flour, I used 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour and for the brown sugar I used 1/2 cup brown splenda (sugar replacement).
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 cup lightly packed brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- 3⁄4 cup milk
- 2 ripe bananas, mashed
- Preheat the oven to 375°F.
- In a large bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt.
- In a separate bowl, beat together the peanut butter, oil, eggs, milk and bananas.
- Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just until moistened.
- Spoon the batter into 12 well greased muffin cups. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of a muffin comes out clean. Makes 12 muffins.

Followed the recipe exactly and loved these muffins! They are lightly sweetened and moist. For a sweeter muffin, you could swap the brown sugar for white, or as many have suggested, add chocolate chips. The adults and children in our family loved the recipe just the way it is (but the chocolate chips OR MAYBE NUTELLA!!M may be tried in our next batch)!
I'm also surprised by the reviews that said these were not sweet enough. I had several bananas too ripe to eat but perfect for bread. I made this recipe exactly as shown, but did use Honey Peanut Butter (because that's what I eat normally) and also added 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips to the original recipe. I took them to work and they loved them. Recipe for me made 16 muffins. A super easy recipe with simple ingredients always on hand, so I'll definitely keep this recipe handy for quick muffins. Thanks for posting it!
