Let’s talk peanut butter banana muffins! Did you know that September is National Better Breakfast Month?? Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and I’m always searching for healthier options. Plus, I’ve usually got bananas that are on the verge of going bad, so this recipe attacked both birds. These muffins were really easy and they make a kid-friendly, but still healthy breakfast for Hayden. I found it on Pinterest from Two Peas & Their Pod. They have great recipes that are simple to follow and DELISH so I highly recommend that you check them out. The original recipe called for almond milk, but we are a whole milk family so I used that instead. I have noted the almond milk option below so you can try out whichever one you want.

- ¼ cup honey

- ½ cup milk the original recipe called for almond milk
- Optional topping: Turbinado sugar
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a muffin pan.
- Using a sifter, add all dry ingredients to a bowl, lightly whisk, and set aside.
- Using a mixer, combine mashed bananas, brown sugar, honey, coconut oil, egg and vanilla until combined.

These peanut butter banana muffins are so tasty!!! I usually end up eating one for breakfast, and another one for a snack later on in the day. They are just sweet enough to satisfy your sweet tooth, but you don’t have to feel guilty for treating yourself! Now that the kiddo is back in school and my mornings are so much more hectic, I love that I can have these as a quick on the go breakfast. Let me know what you think!
