Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 25 mins

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).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat together the peanut butter, oil, eggs, milk and bananas.
  4. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just until moistened.
  5. 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.

This recipe produces tasteless muffins. Definitely needs more sugar!!

The muffins turn out really good! Added some choc chips and a touch more sugar as my bananas were not that ripe, but the texture was great! Thanks a lot!

These were very bland. My boyfriend took one bite and said "Sorry babe. I don't think I like these." He NEVER turns down anything I cook or bake. They are still cooling. Hoping more flavour will come with them sitting over night. My fault for not reading reviews before baking. Also, I didn't have chocolate chips to sweeten them.. im sure that would have helped. Disappointed as I even doubled the batch and now have 30 muffins we don't like.. ugh.
