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?!?)

How to Store Muffins

There are a few ways to properly store 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 pop into the microwave for 10 seconds or just allow muffin to come to room temperature naturally, about 15 minutes.
  • Freezer: 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 muffin from the freezer and allow to come to room temperature overnight in the refrigerator or on the counter for a couple of hours.

  1. 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?

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

    Thank you

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

    1. 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.

  4. 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.

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

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

    1. 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:

      water
      pollen
      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.
