Peanut Butter Banana Bread Muffins (Gluten Free)
Moist and full of banana flavor, these peanut butter banana muffins are sure to please a crowd! Made with healthy, but tasty ingredients, you’ll never guess that these are good for you. These muffins make the perfect breakfast side or snack.
My dilemma today: 3 overly ripe bananas that needed to be used. Normally, I freeze my overly ripe bananas, but today I decided I wanted to make something out of them. After spending some time dreaming about what to make, I settled on muffins.
The question then was, what kind?
Again, I sat there thinking and decided to whip up a batch of peanut butter banana bread muffins. I was a little nervous if these would turn out, since this recipe was a total experiment, but I was pleasantly surprised when I took them out of the oven.
Thanks to coconut oil and peanut butter, these muffins are super moist, exactly the way a muffin should be. (In my humble opinion.)
Peanut Butter Banana Bread Muffins
3 Large bananas
1/4 c. Melted coconut oil
1/8 c. Peanut butter (or almond butter)
1 Large egg
1 1/2 c. Oat four*
1 Tsp. Cinnamon
1 Tsp. Baking Soda
2 Tsp. Baking powder
1 scoop Whey protein
1/3 c. Whole oats
Blend first five ingredients in blender until combined. In a separate bowl, mix together dry ingredients. Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix until just combined. (Don’t over mix, you want fluffy muffins, not dense!) Scoop 1/3 c. of batter into greased muffin tin. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes or until tops of muffins are golden brown.
Serve warm or cool and store in airtight container.
* I normally make my own oat flour. Just place oats in blender and blender until the consistency of the oats looks like flour. For this recipe, I used a heaping 1 1/2 c. whole oats to make 1 1/2 c. oat flour.
