Banana and Peanut Butter Muffins

Don’t you think this little guy and his sister are the most adorable children you’ve ever seen? I do, but then they’re my children.

Jason and Lauren are in their twenties now, and have long since been on their own. Now there’s a new adorable kid on the block – my nephew, Blake.



When Blake comes to visit, his aunt and uncle don’t waste one minute of toddler fun, and that includes breakfast. Muffins are always on the menu, and Auntie Kristi makes sure they’re healthy too.

Banana Peanut Butter Muffins

Blake’s muffins include natural peanut butter, yogurt, oats and bananas. A healthy breakfast muffin for a growing boy.



As you can see from Blake’s half eaten muffin, this recipe is a hit.

Blake’s expecting a new brother. I’d better keep a few muffins on hand for Grayson. I’m guessing he’ll be a big muffin fan too.

      That’s funny. There weren’t any left or I would mail them to you. He took them home in a bag. Had to hold them in his lap in the car seat. Got to love those little people!

    I love your recipe! Sometimes I just want a simple muffin and these have two of my favorite ingredients – peanut butter and bananas :) I’d eat these any day for breakfast! And I love the whole wheat flour and yogurt, healthy and delicious!

      Thank you Kristina. Whole wheat pastry flour has become my flour of choice. After doing some reading, it has as many nutrients as whole wheat flour, but it works so much better in baked goods. Have a good weekend.

    These sound great! I always liked peanut butter & bananas on toast for breakfast. I bet these taste similar but muffins of course are WAY better! And they’re lower in calories than most muffins, yes & yes!

    Oh…Kristen, these look so delicious, especially this early in the morning!!
    And of course, your kids are precious. Doesn’t it seem just 2 weeks ago that they were that little?!

    Have a nice weekend :)

    Ha, now Blake will be wanting to go see his aunt very often and looking for some tasty goodies at your house. These do sound delicious-obviously not just pleasing to the kids! Great post.
