Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

I love muffins.  I love how easy they are to make, how many varieties there are, and how convenient they are for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack.  Needless to say, I'm always looking for new recipes.  So I was pretty happy when I came across this one that claimed to be some of the best muffins ever.  Well, they were right.

I don't think you can go wrong with a peanut butter/banana/chocolate combo.  These muffins are divine.  Normally I like to freeze some, for a handy breakfast or snack in the future, but these didn't make it that far.  Two days later and they're gone!

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Muffinsadapted from Noble Pig

2-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed, golden brown sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3 large, ripe bananas, mashed-enough for 1-1/4 cups banana
1 cup milk (I used soy)
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter (I used Adam's all-natural because I fucking hate Kraft-- those rat bastards)
3 Tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used 1/3 milk and 2/3 semi-sweet)

In a large bowl, sift together flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and the cinnamon; combine.

In another mixing bowl combine mashed bananas, milk, peanut butter, egg, oil, and vanilla; mix well.  Add this to the dry mixture previously prepared; mix just enough to combine.  Stir in chocolate chips.

Line or grease muffin tins, and fill 3/4 full. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean and the muffins spring back when lightly pressed.


  1. do you think i could just omit the peanut butter and they'd be just as good? what do you suggest for a substitute?


  2. have you tried almond butter or any of the other nut butters? They would work. oh! or nutella. I obviously can't eat any of those, but I'm sure they'd be just as tasty. The nutella would be amazing, actually.

  3. oh! i hadn't thought of that. normally, i don't like the texture of nut butters but perhaps in a muffin recipe it wouldn't be that bad. i think i will try nutella first, though. thanks for the response! i'll let you know how it goes.

  4. Lena :) I i think the recipe is awesome but can you try to translate it for me in spanish because i want to make this one to the perfection for my sister birthday. Thanks!

  5. They look so tasty pls reply :)=

  6. lena: would this work? let me know!

  7. is the title "peanut butter cookies" a typo or something? That definetly looks like a muffin to me... But anyway, both are great!
    Your recipes are so great, I've post some of them on my site and gave credit to this site. If there's a problem, let me know! Thanks ^_^
