Healthy Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Muffins are moist, fluffy and the perfect amount of chocolate flavor! Made with whole wheat flour, apple sauce, and peanut butter, enjoy these healthy muffins for breakfast, dessert or a snack.
My blog is slowly transforming into a baking blog and I’m more than ok with it… so I hope y’all are too. I’m finding out that muffins are my favorite thing to bake/make in general. They also might be my favorite thing to eat as well. 😉
Healthy muffins are so versatile! You can have them for breakfast, a snack, dessert, you name it.
Pretty much all of my favorite muffin recipes involve chocolate chips (i.e. Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Muffins, One Bowl Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins, Dark Chocolate Raspberry Banana Muffins… you get the idea) so I figured I’d keep the trend going.
I love warming them back up in the microwave, letting the chocolate chips get all melty again and topping with a scoop of vanilla gelato.
Seriously NOTHING better.
If you follow me on Instagram, you already know my love for all things peanut butter runs deep. It’s in my bio, after all.
How I didn’t have a peanut butter muffin recipe already is beyond me!
Thankfully I came to my senses because these muffins are next level. If I do say so myself. 🙂
The first time I made these peanut butter chocolate banana muffins they were a little dry and not sweet enough (in my opinion). Because I’m not one to love overly sweet desserts in the first place, that says a LOT.
After a couple of attempts, I’d say I achieved the perfect balance of sweetness.
I love baking with bananas because they offer their own natural sugars which really limits how much added sugar you need. I’m all about balancing those blood sugar levels, yall. Read more about my nutrition coaching approach here.
Baking with sweet potatoes helps limit the amount of sugar baked goods need, too! I have several recipes that use sweet potatoes as the base (I.e. Dark Chocolate Flourless Sweet Potato Brownies, Sweet Potato Banana Bread, and Chocolate Chip Sweet Potato Muffins) and they are some of my posts popular recipes.
My office isn’t filled with the most health-conscious eaters, but it’s safe to say they enjoyed these healthy peanut butter chocolate banana muffins just as much as I did!
I brought them into the office and they were gone before 10 AM. For reference… I got in around 9:30 AM.
