Peanut Butter and Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Peanut butter and bananas come together in this moist muffin recipe. Surprisingly very healthy.

Peanut Butter and Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins


Weekend already, can you believe it?

Hi! How was your week? Was it busy? Relaxing?

Mine was crazy. Test weeks sound like super relaxing times for teachers... until you realize that you have fat stacks of papers to mark. Good thing it's a long weekend for us Canadians. Forget about making a turkey. I'm going to be hanging out at the nearest coffee shop, drinking TONS of coffee and marking test after test.

Bless you Starbucks for being open on stat. holidays!

And while I will be spending all my money on copious amounts of coffee, that doesn't mean I need to spend all my money on overpriced food to go with my coffee. Enter these muffins!

I absolutely love the peanut butter and banana combo. One of my favourite snacks is to grab a banana and slather it in peanut butter. Or a peanut butter and banana sandwich. Which is all kinds of tasty.

But for some reason I have never made peanut butter and banana muffins! I have made peanut butter banana breadpeanut butter banana smoothie and peanut butter and banana ice cream but never a bite sized, portable peanut butter and banana muffin. This recipe has been a long time coming.

One of my favourite things about this recipe is that it is actually pretty healthy. Made with whole wheat flour, no butter or oil and, get this. Only 2 Tablespoons of sugar! It's incredible how you don't need much sugar in baked goods that already have ripe bananas in it.

So don't feel bad for me that I won't be getting my turkey dinner. I've got coffee and these delicious muffins. Which is at least something to be grateful for, right?

  3. What a fun idea for muffins, Cathleen! I love the peanut butter + banana combo, but I don't think I've ever had it in muffin form. That needs to be fixed soon! :-) Also, I totally remember those days of endless test grading. Hope you got em all done...or at least most of em!

  4. I so agree - spending money on coffee vs baked treats is what I'd do too - especially when decadent treats like this come out of your kitchen!
