Banana Bread was a staple snack in my house growing up. But it was only until about a year ago when I started eating them. Banana Bread is so easy to make and can be frozen to be eaten later on. Today I’m sharing my recipe for Maple Peanut Butter Banana Muffins. I took out the white sugar and substituted it for maple syrup and brown sugar. I added the peanut butter for some added protein. As I mentioned in my smoothie post, The Peanut Butter and Bananas combination is the perfect post workout snack. I’ll be snacking on these muffins after my Pilates class today.
Maple Peanut Butter Banana Muffins
1/2 cup of butter
1 tsp. baking soda
pinch of salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup greek yogurt
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
3 ripe bananas mashed
1/2 cup peanut butter
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
Using a mixer, cream butter, sugar, eggs, maple syrup, yogurt and peanut butter together. Gradually add in dry ingredients. Once you have blended all of those ingredients, stir in your mashed bananas.
Add batter to a lined muffin baking pan. Bake muffins in the oven for 20-30 minutes or until brown on top.
Allow muffins to completely cool before eating.
