As many bananas as my children consume weekly, we almost always have a stash of bananas that have gone to brown for them. That is fine with me, the browner the better for making banana bread and muffins. When I saw the recipe for Peanut Butter Banana Bread on…… I knew my kids would love this recipe.
Peanut butter banana sandwiches are a regular staple for lunch around our house. So why not try it in a muffin. Peanut Butter Banana Muffins Recipe
This recipe is not that different than other banana muffin recipes, just the fun addition of peanut butter. I did not make the peanut butter glaze for the muffins but know my kids would go crazy if I had. I did not add the chopped peanuts either, we did not have any at the time of making the recipe.
The kids thought these were good and brought them to school one day, but I had a few muffins linger for several days.
For a healthy breakfast and snack and a little switch up from your traditional banana muffin recipe.
