Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

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 Make Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

I have to tell you, one of my favorite things is being inspired by my weekly ALDI shopping trip. Not only do they have great pantry staples I can also count on, but now they have even more new
and updated products to offer that really get my creative juices flowing! This trip I found the new FriendlyFarms Organic Vanilla Unsweetened Almond Milk. When I saw it I just knew that it would make the PERFECT glaze for these muffins and that I could still feel really good about feeding it to my kids! I am a sucker for anything organic and the almond milk did not disappoint! (I may have finished the container in 2 days! Who knew it would be so delicious with everything?!?)

Healthy Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

Not many things make me feel better than baking delicious snacks for my kids that they love and that are better for them! Olivia (my baby!) loved these muffins and asked for them every morning. That makes a mama’s heart happy! <3

    Amanda, will products other than the ALDI brand products work for those who do not have access to the specified products you used in the Peanut Butter Banana Muffins?
    Quaker Quick 1 Minute Oatmeal?
    Quaker Old Fashion Oatmeal?
    What if no raw honey?
    Look forward to your reply. Thanks.

  • Linda Waldrep says:

    Will regular ingredients work in the Peanut Butter Banana Muffins, if one does not have access to ALDI products you specified?
    Quick 1-minute oats or old-fashion oats?
    A substitute for raw honey?
    I enjoy your recipes and look forward to your reply. Thanks.

  • Angele says:

    This recipe is called Peanut butter banana muffins but bananas are not listed in the ingredient list or directions? How much banana do you put in and when?

    • Amanda says:

      Hi Angele- bananas are definitely listed in the ingredients and directions. 🙂

      • Sandy Dees says:

        Are there any adjustments for making it a loaf instead?

        • Amanda says:

          I have not made these as a loaf so cannot provide accurate adjustments at this time.

    • Patty says:

      The recipe says two bananas. Did you miss that.

  • Mariam says:

    How many calories are in each piece?!

  • Pat says:

    The recipe looks delicious. Could you email it due to the fact mother is being repaired.

  • Cheri says:

    Bananas vary in size and ”medium” is subjective. How many cups of mashed banana, please?

  • Lisa Robinett says:

    Looks yummy.. But do u have nutritional information?

  • The Modern Proper says:

    I love the range of healthy ingredients you used. Sometimes I see muffins people recommend for breakfast but it’s loaded with sugar. I know I don’t want my kids starting the day that way. These sound delicious.

  • Linda Waldrep says:

    Amanda, my question re absence of specified brand name products was posted; however, no answer was not given.

    • Amanda says:

      I’m not sure what you are asking Linda.

  • Jeanne says:

    I made these yesterday and they are great. They are not very sweet but my sons still loved them. I put the oats in a blender since I knew they would like the texture better that way. We skipped the glaze and added a few chocolate chips and blueberries to some.

  • Kathleen says:

    I don’t have any Bakers Corner flour. Would King Auther’s unbleached all purpose be okay? It has more protein than most other flours?

  • Annette Naranjo says:

    Can unsweetened apple sauce be used instead of Greek yogurt? And how much? My daughter is allergic to milk.

    Thank you

    • Reanne Halford-Jarvis says:

      I have used the koko dairy free coconut yogurt with it and that worked.

  • Anastassia says:

    Honey is an added sugar, as is the glaze. While these are reduced sugar they are not no sugar added.

    • Amanda says:

      Honey contains 40 percent fructose and 30 percent glucose; then water, pollen, and minerals. Honey is different because of the enzymes that are added
      to the nectar by bees that divide the sucrose into two simple sugars, fructose, and glucose. These sugars are directly absorbed by our bodies and are easier to digest.
      Sugar is higher on the glycemic index (GI) than honey, so it raises blood sugar levels more quickly. This is due to its higher fructose content, and the absence of trace minerals. So while you are technically correct, the way that honey is digested is significant and if it is the only sugar added to a diet, it is better for you.

  • Mary Dubois says:

    the best muffins i made. i used no name ingredients, regular milk liquid honey, rolled oats. i used crunchy peanut butter, 1 and a half big banana. had no med. basically i improvised and used what i had on hand. they turned out great and i will make them again.

  • Bibiana says:

    Exelent this look soo good

  • cheryl olson says:

    Can i make anything you have for recipe for instant pots

  • Bev Silcox says:

    What can I use as a substitute for the oats, I am allergic to them, but would love to make this recipe.

  • Sherrill Grawrock says:

    Mini chocolate chips would make an excellent addition!

  • Anne says:

    No added sugar…? Are you kidding? 1/4 cup of honey and the glaze is confectioners sugar.
    You might want to rethink that statement!

    • Amanda Rettke says:

      No added sugar in the muffin. The glaze is separate. The proportions of glucose and fructose in honey and sugar are different:

      sugar is 50 percent fructose and 50 percent glucose
      honey contains 40 percent fructose and 30 percent glucose
      The remainder of honey consists of:

      minerals, including magnesium and potassium
      These additional components may be responsible for some of the health benefits of honey.

      Sugar is higher on the glycemic index (GI) than honey, meaning it raises blood sugar levels more quickly. This is due to its higher fructose content, and the absence of trace minerals.

      Calm down, Anne. It’s just a recipe. If you don’t like it, don’t make it.

  • laura says:

    can the bananas be replaced with something else?

    • Amanda Rettke says:

      You can omit. 🙂

  • Tina says:

    Will rice flour work for all purpose flour?

    • Elizabeth Keeney says:

      Hi, Tina! I work with iambaker and am happy to help with questions. Yes, you can use rice flour in place of all-purpose. However, we have not tried that with this recipe. I hope it turns out, and have a great day!

  • Haritha says:

    Is there an alternative to eggs?

  • Linds Waldrep says:

    I’m not so much into “organic;” therefore, is using regular peanut butter (and not “natural”) and regular milk okay, without significant outcome in muffins other than not being “organic?“

    • Amanda Rettke says:

      You can use regular peanut butter. 🙂
