Dry-bowl ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 Tbs baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt

Wet-bowl ingredients

  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 bananas

Add ins

  • ½ cup chopped walnuts



  • Preheat oven to 375. Grease a muffin pan (no need for paper cups, the muffins slide out nicely). Get out 1 large mixing bowl and 2 medium ones.
  • Mash bananas in one of the medium bowls. Chop walnuts.

Dry Ingredients - Large bowl

  • Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt in the large bowl.

Wet ingredients - Medium bowl

  • Mix together the peanut butter and brown sugar until creamy. Stir in the milk, mashed bananas, and vanilla until combined.

Pour wet ingredients into the large dry-ingredient bowl

  • Pour the wet ingredients into the flour-mixture bowl and stir just until combined. Overmixing creates tough muffins, so don't do that. Fold in walnuts if using.


  • Scoop batter into the muffin tin to make 12 muffins. Bake for 18-22 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool slightly before eating.
