Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

So when I’m trying to come up with tasty treats,

the trick is to keep them healthy, too. Enter these muffins. Made with a minimum of ingredients and everything nice and clean, I feel good about eating them and letting my family gobble them up. Just like my other muffin recipes, these use oats instead of flour, and have no processed white sugar or oil. Instead, it’s the flavor of the ingredients that make these so good. Plus it’s a great way to use up those overripe bananas…

Preheat oven to 325.

Mix:

1-2 ripe bananas

2 eggs, beaten

1/2 c. applesauce (I use those little individual cups, unsweetened. One is 1/2 cup.)

1/2 c. nut butter (peanut or almond)

1/2 c. honey

Blend, then add to wet ingredients:

1 1/2 c. old fashioned oatmeal, put through food processor until fine

3 tsp. baking powder

2 tsp. cinnamon

Options!

These are pretty amazing even if you stop right here, BUT you can customize them a tad by adding 1/3 c. mini chocolate chips or a sprinkle of chopped walnuts in the batter or on top.

Mix all ingredients until smooth. Spoon into 12 muffin tins sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool before removing from tin.
