Happy Monday Y’all! Normally, I would not be this chipper, but I am on April Vacation until next Tuesday.. so I am not going to lie, I am definitely a little giddy!
Catching up from the weekend:
Yes.. I was busy little blogger this weekend. I am sure I will be posting a lot this week too, but I need to take a reality check once work starts up again. Posting 3 times a day.. just isn’t realistic!
Now onto the goods:
Peanut Butter-Banana Muffins(Dark Chocolate Chips.. Optional, but Encouraged 🙂 )
- 3/4 c. whole wheat flour
- 1/2 c. multi-purpose flour (if I hadn’t run out, I would have used PEANUT FLOUR)
- 1/4 c. rolled oats
- 1 tbsp vanilla protein powder
- 1/2 tbsp stevia (or other sweetener)
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 3 extra ripe bananas, mashed (check out the old produce on clearance!)
- 1/4 c. creamy peanut butter
- 3/4 c. almond milk
- 1 egg white
- 2 tbsp honey
- 3 tbsp natural applesauce
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp almond extract
- extra peanut butter for dollop in middle
- Dark Chocolate Chips
- Any sort of nut
- Anything you want to add 🙂
Preheat Oven to 350*
Spray a muffin pan with non-stick baking spray and set aside.
Combine all dry ingredients in bowl.
Slowly mix in each wet ingredient.
Add your extras!
Once blended well, fill 1/2 of each muffin mold in the pan.
Using the extra peanut butter, add a little dollop in the middle to be enjoyed as a little treat while eating your muffin (you ay want to use chocolate.. flavored PB.. I just used plain, but plant to explore!)
Pop in the oven and cook for 28-30 minutes.. or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Here you have it!
My concerns about this recipe are the consitency. They seem pretty dense to me and I am not sure how to fix that. I think next time I will use less flour. Since this was my second time baking them today (huge disappointment first time, but I changed it up)… I decided two batches was enough for the day!
Suggestions on how to make them better are welcome. As for taste, I think that are rather yummy.
Good Luck to all the marathoners in Boston today!
