Banana Peanut Butter Muffins

6 Jan

So after a rather uninspiring day at the office and some sneaky browsing on food blogs during the day I decided to do some baking when I got home.  One of my favourite combinations is banana and peanut butter – on toast, in a smoothie and now in a muffin.

I adapted this recipe from eat me, delicious and it is absolutely yummy and not too bad for you either, with only about 200 calories a muffin.


  • 1 1/2 cups flour (1/2 cup wholewheat and 1 cup wholegrain spelt)
  • 1 cup large oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 2 medium bananas (mashed)
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1 cup low fat plain yoghurt


  1. Preheat oven to 180*C and lightly grease a 12-cup muffin tin and line with muffin cases
  2. In a large bowl mix together the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda and salt
  3. In a smaller bowl whisk together the oil, sugar, eggs, banana, peanut butter and yoghurt until well combined
  4. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir until combined
  5. Divide batter evenly into muffin tray and bake for about 20 minutes (until browned and a toothpick comes out clean)
  6. Let cool (slightly) and pop into mouth

In an attempt to be healthy I am going to freeze some and take them out as a nice treat.

Next I am going to try these flourless peanut butter cookies (without the chocolate).  Though possibly on a weekend so I can  make use of the morning light when taking photos.
