Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

"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)."

  1. I love these muffins so much because they're just the right amount of sweetness. They're perfect muffins with some fruit for breakfast or brunch. I highly recommend them!
  2. I was sad when I read all the bad reviews on these but I'm glad I decided to be my own critic. In my opinion, they're not as flavorful as most muffins because they are better for you than most muffins. I tried one as soon as it came, and I think they're delicious. Mine came out crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.
  3. I made these muffins. They've just came out of the oven. The kitchen smells like we are in muffin heaven. I didn't read the comments before and to be honest I am shocked how many people gave such a bad review. Btw. I never give a review and keep my opinion for myself, but I have to speak up. More sugar? Nope! Ripe bananas? Yes!!! My family - even my mother-in- law likes them as they turned out fantastic!!! I put chocolate chips because my 4 year old son wanted them with the banana, but it didn't make the muffins for sweeter... So people. Cut back on sugar!!! Greetings from Germany!
  4. This recipe produces tasteless muffins. Definitely needs more sugar!!
  5. Made them and they are good, I'll admit my first bite I was like yeah, some people say bland I say subtle, used smaller muffin pan thatmakes 12, cooked for 20 minutes and the top was light but they cooked through well;sides were nicely browned, and the moisture made them! Me and my sons loved them my daughter though is one of those sweet tooth people, I may add a extra banana for her, she took one bite and was like no


  1. I sdded 1tbl cinnamon 1/2 tbl nutmeg and 1tbl vanilla
  2. My first batch came out too dry for my liking so i added a few spoonfuls of plain greek yogurt
  3. Almond Breeze Hint of Honey instead of regular milk, honey peanut butter instead of regular, bananas that were going bad instead of ripe, butter instead of vegetable oil, and I added Chocolate Donut FlavorGod seasoning
  4. see above in comments
  5. Very tasty and moist. i did add a few mini choc chips and subbed some of the milk with coffee. Wonderful texture, though.
