These crazy easy Peanut Butter Banana Muffins are the perfect back-to-school snack! Healthy enough for a quick morning breakfast, or add the glaze and make it a fun after-school treat! For the same delicious flavor combination, try my Banana Peanut Butter Chip Cookies, too.
This recipe has a few basic ingredients so it is important to make sure you are using excellent quality! I found organic peanut butter, bananas, and old-fashioned oats at the store and knew I could make something amazing. And these muffins do not disappoint! The best part about these muffins is that there is a ton of flavor but NO added sugar!! So perfect for breakfast. If you happen to want to add a bit of decadence, I added an almond milk glaze to the muffin and it definitely adds an extra sweet kick!
How to Store Peanut Butter Banana Muffins
- Room Temperature: Because they are best enjoyed at room temperature, this is usually the recommended way to storing. I use a larger sealable plastic bag or an airtight container to store the muffins in a single layer. Some folks recommend adding a piece of paper towel to the bottom so that it will soak up any condensation. If your muffins are properly cooled before storing, this may not be necessary. However, if I am using an airtight container, I will often add a piece of bread to the container, torn in half, and fit in between the muffins. The bread will soak up moisture as well. Best enjoyed within 2-3 days.
- Refrigerator: (Refrigeration, in general, dries out baked goods faster so a typical muffin recipe shouldn’t be refrigerated.) Place in a sealable plastic bag or airtight container and then place into the refrigerator. They should keep for up to 5 days. To reheat, remove from refrigerator and pop into the microwave for 10 seconds or just allow muffin to come to room temperature naturally, about 15 minutes.
Can I Freeze These Muffins?
Yes! Place cooled muffins into a freezer-safe sealable plastic bag or a freezer-safe airtight container and pack as closely as possible without crushing. Remove as much air as possible. Label with date and recipe name.
How to Reheat Frozen Muffins
Remove the muffin from the freezer and allow it to come to room temperature overnight in the refrigerator or on the counter for a couple of hours.
