These are totally dessert muffins, not because they are so cakey, but because they are sweet and really lack any fiber whatsoever. Plus they are so very yummy. I was totally skeptical about the added peanut butter, assuming it would really overpower everything, but it didn’t; you could just taste it enough to compliment the bananas. Yum. Next time – double batch!
Adapted from Heather Eats Almond Butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter (Natural, if you use a sugar added kind you may want to reduce the sugar)
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup walnuts
cooking spray or muffin cups
Preheat oven to 350F. Combine and beat together bananas, egg, vanilla, peanut butter, and sugar. Combine dry ingredients and gently stir into wet until just mixed. Stir in walnuts.
