Do you have some ripe bananas and some peanut butter laying around? If you do, these Peanut Butter Banana Muffins are calling your name. I really enjoy the combination of peanut butter and banana, so it was a no brainer that I needed to make muffins with these two flavors combined!

They make the perfect snack or a yummy addition to your morning breakfast! These babies not only taste so scrumptious, but they are also good for you too! They’re packed with protein, fiber, potassium, and are sweetened naturally with pure maple syrup. Not to mention, they’re gluten-free, dairy-free and refined-sugar-free

And if you are a chocolate LOVER like I am, and you are feeling like you really wanna indulge, throw some chocolate chips in there and you’ll really take them to another level!

  • ripe bananas
  • pure maple syrup
