Banana muffins are another way to use up overripe bananas. I have been trying to create a good peanut butter banana muffins recipe for a while now. I finally got a winner.

Banana Muffins with Peanut Butter

Due to Mike’s recent banana obsession, I am finding myself with many overripe bananas. There’s a small time-frame in which bananas are the proper ripeness for Mike.

After they get too yellow, he’s no longer interested. Fine by me since I am having fun creating different banana bread recipes and goodies.

Banana Muffin Directions

Step One: Get Ready

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and prepare a muffin pan by lining it with cupcake liners or spraying it with nonstick cooking spray.

Step Two: Make the Muffin Batter

Mash the bananas in a bowl. I like to use my stand mixer most of the time.

Melt the coconut oil and add it to the mashed bananas. You can also use butter instead of coconut oil.

Mix in the agave, egg, vanilla, peanut butter, salt, and baking soda and continue to mix.

Slowly add in the flour and oats. Mix well to combine.

Stir in the cinnamon chips.

Step Three: Bake

Pour the batter into the muffin pan, filling each cup about 3/4 of the way.

Bake for 22-25 minutes. Check with a toothpick. Do not over bake.

Peanut Butter Banana Muffin Recipe Notes and FAQ

Do I have to use cinnamon chips?

No, I only used cinnamon chips because they are new to me and I love them. Feel free to use chocolate chips, nuts, or anything else you like in muffins.

Do not over bake.

The first batch I made I baked a little too long at 30 minutes. They were still good, but a little dry. The second batch was perfect at 25 minutes. Definitely do not over bake.
