My obsession with peanut butter continues… if you’re in the same boat, you will love these muffins too!
These muffins are light, healthy and packed with flavor. Now with my kids back at school, I am looking for easy, healthy recipes that I can make ahead and have ready for breakfast, snacks or even in my kids’ lunch boxes. These are perfect for all of those. And if for some crazy reason you have leftovers that won’t be eaten right away, you can easily freeze them. Simply take them out and place in the refrigerator the night before and they will be ready for breakfast in the morning!
Peanut Butter Protein Muffins
- 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup protein powder
- 1/2 cup raw honey
- 3 very ripe bananas mashed
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 cup natural creamy peanut butter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Spray muffin tin with cooking spray or line with muffin liners.
In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt, protein powder until combined.
Add honey, mashed bananas and applesauce until combined.
Add peanut butter and mix again.
Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until edges are golden brown and toothpick is placed in the center and comes out clean.
I love that these muffins are healthy and I thought why not add some protein to them? I love adding good quality, protein powder to baked goods. These muffins are vegetarian but you cam easily use 100% maple syrup to make them vegan (honey isn’t vegan).
These muffins don’t last long in my house. But then again, we are all equally in love with peanut butter. You can use any nut butter you’d like if you have food allergies and I bet sunflower seed butter would be delicious in here as well. But my heart will always belong to peanut butter. It’s funny, once you start eating the natural kind for years and have a taste of that processed stuff, you can’t go back. At least I can’t. You can easily make your own peanut butter too which I will do frequently. It might sound fancy, but trust me, it’s just crushing up peanuts (and I add ground flax) to a high speed blender or food processor. It’s that simple. And that delicious.
