Easy Peanut Butter Banana Muffins – with a hint of peanut butter and naturally sweet flavors of banana, these are a perfect pairing for your morning coffee or afternoon snack!
Easy Peanut Butter Banana Muffins
I have your new favorite brunch addition! This quick and easy muffin recipe yields a muffin with a perfect crumb, a soft moist center, with a slightly crisp top.
Once again, these Easy Peanut Butter Banana Muffins will make your kitchen smell wonderful, and they are best still warm, fresh out of the oven.
Sneak a few chocolate chips in these for an extra bit of sweet. Or don’t – because these have the natural sweet of very ripe bananas that I am not going to eat as a piece of fruit. I don’t even want the super ripe ones in my smoothies.
I know – I am the weirdo that prefers the not very sweet at all flavor of a starchy unripe banana. Almost green? That’s for me. Perfectly yellow with no spots? Yes, please.
But I always buy a large bunch of bananas, because Jason and I both enjoy one a day, and I like to sometimes have an excuse to bake.
We liked these so much, I had to wait for the bananas to ripen enough for the second time around.
I made this recipe three times with the same result. If you enjoy them all within a couple days, they are fine stored in a closed container on the counter. You can refrigerate them, but I’d warm them or let them come to room temp again before eating.
Did I say these muffins will be your new favorite brunch item? They disappeared quickly at my last brunch…
