Peanut Butter Banana Muffins!

By Earl
This fabulous recipe was discovered by Ms. Mommy after a google search for "peanut butter and banana muffins". It's from the lovely blog Once A Month Mom. It's a very simple recipe for whipping up a quick batch of tasty muffins.

The recipe, along with her inspiration for it and batter freezing instructions, is found here


  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 0.5 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 0.5 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 0.5 cup banana, mashed
  • 1 medium egg white
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 0.5 teaspoon salt
  • 0.33 cup cocoa powder (if desired)
  • 0.25 cup chocolate chips, nuts, or other add-ins (if desired)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper baking cups. In a large mixing bowl, mix 1/2 of the brown sugar with the peanut butter, applesauce, mashed banana and egg white. Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder (if using) in a separate bowl. Add to the bowl with the peanut butter mixture and stir just to combine. Add the remaining 1/2 of brown sugar and stir once or twice. At this point, incorporate any desired add ins (I prefer dark chocolate chips). Divide the batter among the muffin cups and bake until the muffins are lightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. 

Ms. Mommy added extra banana, and baked the muffins a bit longer than recommended because of it, but considers these a success because she managed not to burn or otherwise completely ruin them. They were a HUGE hit! Hank even devoured two whole muffins.
