Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

My family loves banana bread and one of my favorite banana bread toppings is peanut butter so it was a natural for me to incorporate peanut butter into the bread this time.  The perk is that I simply substituted peanut butter for the shortening so I got the PB-banana flavor while adding protein and other nutrients from the nut butter.  {If you’re not a peanut butter fan but you still want a healthier banana bread option, try my low-fat banana bread which uses low-fat Greek yogurt.}  I can envision combining this peanut butter banana bread with my chocolate chip version sometime, too!

*I was out of eggs the first time that I made these but I googled egg substitutes and discovered many ideas on the Chef in You.  I happened to have an extra 1/2 banana and 1/3 cup applesauce so that is the combo I used to replace the 2 eggs and my family didn’t notice the difference.

Recipe type: Muffins
Prep time:

Total time: 
Serves: 8+
I simply substituted peanut butter for the shortening in these muffins so I got the PB-banana flavor while adding protein and other nutrients from the nut butter.
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs (OR ⅔ cup applesauce OR 1 additional banana)
  • 1 cup mashed banana (2+ ripe bananas)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ⅓ cup milk + 1 tsp vinegar or lemon juice (or ⅓ cup + 1 tsp buttermilk)
  1. Cream the peanut butter and the sugar.
  2. Add the eggs and the mashed bananas.
  3. Alternate between adding the remaining dry and wet ingredients.
  4. Spoon the batter into lined muffin tins (or pour the batter into a greased loaf pan).
  5. Bake the muffins at 350 degrees for 15+ minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. A loaf of banana bread will cook for 50-60 minutes.
  6. Let the muffins cool completely on a wire rack.

    These are awesome. I subbed half the flour for whole wheat flour and quick oats. They are even better with some white choc chips! Thanks for sharing:)
