Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

I made these in a pinch this week when I did not have any breakfast to feed Jude. He still got his banana fix, but in the form of muffins instead. I was going to make my other banana nut muffin recipe, but I was completely out of butter, so I decided to experiment a little bit. I served the muffins with a little bit of peanut butter to entice my toddler to try them, but they are good served plain as well. In the recipe, I used crunchy peanut butter, to give the muffins a little more peanut butter flavor/crunch, but creamy would be fine. I bet these would be good with a chocolate chip or maybe even peanut butter chip addition, but I have not tried that yet!

  1. That looks excellent Natalie! I often use a heart-healthy oil with omega 3′s in recipes instead of butter! Great looking muffins! They are so “risen” and pretty! I bet Jude loved them!! You could make them peanut butter and jelly muffins by filling the muffin tin halfway with batter, then adding a tsp. of your favorite jelly, and then putting the remaining muffin batter on top! You would get jelly surprise in the middle! That would be yummy! Great recipe! I am looking forward to cooking with you as well!

  2. Looks great! I can see why Jude went for them! :)

    Lucky boy having a mama like you.
