Quick and easy to make! This recipe is really interesting. It's not a banana muffin, but it's not overwhelmingly peanut butter flavoured either. It tastes like a good peanut butter & banana sandwich. I used chunky peanut butter, which gave some extra texture to the muffins - a great addition, I think. I'd love to pair these muffins with strawberry jam, just to finish off the PB&J flavour combination. Side note: I got 14 muffins, but the 3 bananas I used were quite large.

Hmm.. not my favourite, but to be fair, I substituted half of the flour for wholemeal. Just a little dry and flavourless compared to recipes I have made before, but not bad (hey, I'll eat them anyway!). I think mine turned out as a 3 out of 5, but I rated them 4 to give the recipe the benefit of the doubt about the flour substitution.
