Peanut Butter Banana Muffins with Honey – if you like peanut butter, banana, and honey sandwiches, you will love these simple and healthy peanut butter banana muffins! They are great for breakfast or snack time!
Peanut Butter Banana Muffins
I make a batch of muffins once a week to stick in the freezer. They are great to have on hand for easy breakfasts or snacks for the boys. I just pull them out of the freezer and reheat in the microwave. I try to mix up the muffin recipe every week so the boys don’t get bored. A few of their favorites include Blueberry Coconut Muffins, Apple Zucchini Muffins, and Vegan Banana Blueberry Muffins, and Vegan Chocolate Banana Muffins.
This week, I made a batch of Peanut Butter, Banana, and Honey Muffins, but they never made it to the freezer. Oops! The boys devoured them…with my help! We couldn’t stop eating these muffins!
How to Make Peanut Butter Banana Muffins Healthier
Peanut butter, banana, and honey sandwiches are my favorite so I decided to try the classic combo in muffin form. I am so glad I did because now I have a new favorite muffin! Peanut butter banana muffins drizzled with honey…mmm.
I wanted to keep these peanut butter banana muffins on the healthier side so I used whole wheat flour, natural creamy peanut butter, mashed bananas, coconut oil, and almond milk. You can also use buttermilk.
When the muffins came out of the oven, I also drizzled a little honey over the top! It was the perfect finishing touch!
Extra Peanut Butter on your Peanut Butter Muffin
And if you are a peanut butter lover, like me, I highly recommend spreading a spoonful of peanut butter over the warm peanut butter banana muffin. Double the peanut butter…so good!
I am going to have to make another batch of these Peanut Butter Banana Muffins when my boys aren’t around. If they see them, they will want to eat them and I want to have a stash in the freezer for busy days. I know I won’t be able to resist a warm muffin, but hopefully, they won’t notice that one muffin is missing from the stash:)
