Healthy Peanut Butter Banana Muffins – These yummy banana muffins are naturally sweetened and made from healthier ingredients. They’re a hit with kids and grown-ups alike! (Gluten Free, Dairy Free) 



  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (2 1/23 medium bananas)
  • 3/4 cup natural peanut butter*
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup oat flour** (gluten free, if needed)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking powder

Optional: 1/3-1/2 cup chocolate chips or mini chocolate chips (divided)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a muffin pan or line with parchment liners.
  2. In a blender, food processor, or stand mixer, combine bananas, peanut butter, maple syrup, eggs, and vanilla. Puree until smooth.
  3. Add oat flour and salt and pulse or mix till just combined.
  4. Add baking powder (and 1/4 cup of the chocolate chips, if using) and stir with a spatula to combine. (This will help prevent your batter from deflating).
  5. Spoon the batter into prepared muffin cups and sprinkle with additional chocolate chips, if using.
  6. Bake muffins 16-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Let muffins cool 1 minute in the muffin pan before transferring to a cooling rack.
  8. Store leftover muffins in an airtight container on the counter for 2 days, in the refrigerator 3-4 days, or in the freezer up to 2 months.


*Natural peanut butter contains only peanuts or only peanuts and salt. It will not include any oils or sweeteners.

**To make your own oat flour, puree 1 cup rolled oats in a blender until they have become a very fine powder. Re-measure the flour before adding to the recipe, using only 1 cup in the muffins. Leftover oat flour can be stored in the fridge or freezer.
