Every week I buy 5-7 bananas to add to my morning shakes and every once in awhile I have some ripe ones left over.  Tonight I was looking for a recipe that was not only healthy but had very few ingredients.  I found several recipes that sounded great but I ended up combining a few of them to make these nutritious, well balanced muffins that I could grab-and-go in the mornings as a great alternative to my shakes.  They were very easy and quick to make and turned out delicious! Great for kids on the go too!

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup peanut butter (I used 1/2 cup all natural peanut butter and 1/2 cup PB2 to reduce the fat intake)
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • *you can add coconut, chocolate chips, raisins, etc. to enhance these muffins

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees and grease your mini muffin pan with olive or coconut oil
  2. In a large bowl, combine bananas, eggs and peanut butter, mix well
  3. Mix in oatmeal, baking soda, vanilla, honey and any additions you’d like to add
  4. Pour evenly into muffin pan and bake for approximately 8-10 minutes
  5. Enjoy these for breakfast or even an evening treat!
