When I was a kid, my mum carefully tucked a sandwich into my lunchbox each day. Often it was turkey and cucumber, ham and cheese, or the always-dreaded tuna fish. Not that I didn’t like tuna fish; I just didn’t enjoy sitting in the lunchroom version of Siberia with my odiferous sandwich. If I wanted to sit with the popular kids, peanut butter was where it was at. However, I wasn’t a peanut butter and jelly kind of gal. My favorite combination was peanut butter and banana, with a drizzle of honey.

When I saw this recipe for Banana, Peanut Butter and Honey Muffins by Tasty Kitchen member Laura, I was whisked back to childhood. These muffins are moist, flavorful and lightly sweetened. These would definitely keep me at the popular table in the lunchroom.

Let’s move on to the recipe.

Mix together until just combined. Do not overmix or the muffins will be tough. Nobody likes tough muffins. The batter will be thick.

Fill each muffin cup 3/4 full of batter.

In a small bowl, mix together granulated sugar and the remaining cinnamon.

Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 15 minutes.

Set the muffin tin on a wire rack and let the muffins cool in the pan for a few minutes. Remove from the pan and let cool completely. If you can’t wait, eat one warm. I highly recommend this!

  • 1-¼ cup Flour
  • ½ cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375°F and line a 12-cup standard muffin pan with baking cups then coat baking cups with cooking spray. Set aside.

Whisk together flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture.

Combine banana, yogurt, egg, water, peanut butter, honey and vanilla in a medium-sized bowl. Whisk to combine. Add this wet mixture into the well that you made in the center of the flour mixture and stir just until combined. The batter will be thick.

I got more than 12 muffins. I had enough dough to make an extra loaf… It is of the right sweetness, not cloyingly sweet. The honey was just right. I thought I might add more bananas the next round.

These will definitely be a staple for breakfast, yum yum yum. But I doubled the banana and didn’t use an egg, and I also added some extra peanut butter. I’d probably want to substitute the yogurt as well since I’m not sure what it really added to the taste, although I used a fage yogurt with strawberry side topping, and just scooped it all in there, which gave a subtle pb&j flavor to the banana. Next time, I think I’ll try to use 3 bananas to enhance that flavor. Overall though, these are delicious! Thank you for the recipe!

I liked the idea, but I couldn’t really taste the banana at all. They were pretty dry too. I really wanted them to be amazing!

Made these ths morning! Very good, not very sweet which I love. Made them true to recipe as I always do the first go at a new recipe and I would not change a thing! I will certainly be making them again.
