Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

Farm-fresh eggs from across the street make me want to bake.

I like to bake. A lot. And now that I’m gluten-free, I like to try new recipes. While surfing gluten-free blogs, I came across this blog. There are so. many. delicious. treats. I really wanted to make this. Wipe that saliva off your face. I had to do the same. That treat is decidedly not sugar free. So, I settled on a recipe for Peanut Butter Banana Muffins.

Bananas! No processed sugar! Lots of fatty peanut butter? Delicious!

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (or honey)
  • 2 ripe bananas chopped
  • Cinnamon** my addition
  • Vanilla
  • ¾ cup creamy TJ’s Crunchy Peanut Butter 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Prepare muffin tin with paper baking cups.
  3. Separate eggs. Nerve-wracking!

    Separation anxiety.

  4. In mixing bowl, whip egg whites until stiff peaks form. Don’t overdo it, or you’ll have a soufflé on your hands.

    Stiff peaks.

  5. In another bowl, whip yolks until they become a creamy, lighter yellow (about 2 minutes on high speed).
  6. To yolks, add chopped bananas, vanilla, sprinkle of cinnamon, maple syrup, and peanut butter.

    Mix it up.

  7. Blend thoroughly.
  8. With rubber spatula, fold your creamy peanut butter mixture into the egg whites. Mix until the white stripes disappear!

    Yum o.

  9. Fill muffin cups until full.
  10. Bake 20-25 minutes, or until an inserted knife comes out clean.

I had ½ of a muffin before running some errands on Sunday. The muffin looked a little angry, but it sure tasted good.

Why is your face all scrunched up?

While its consistency is a little soufflé-like, it was delicious nonetheless. Plus, your whole house will smell like peanut butter. Who can argue with that?

  1. Thanks for the link love. Yes, you probably made a good choice with the muffins instead of the pie if you are wanting to cut back on the sugar 🙂 I love these muffins too as do the kiddos.
