Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

Gather Ingredients You'll need ripe bananas, creamy peanut butter, flour, baking powder, baking soda, eggs, sugar, and a pinch of salt. Make sure your bananas are spot-on ripe for that perfect sweetness. These simple ingredients come together to create a muffin that's both moist and flavorful.

Preheat the Oven Set your oven to 350°F (175°C). This step ensures that your Banana Peanut Butter Muffins bake evenly and achieve that perfect golden-brown top. While the oven heats, it's the perfect time to prepare your muffin tins by lining them with paper liners or lightly greasing them.

Mash the Bananas Peel and mash your ripe bananas in a large mixing bowl until smooth. This step is crucial as it forms the base of your muffin batter. The bananas add natural sweetness and moisture, making your Banana Peanut Butter Muffins soft and delicious.

Mix Wet Ingredients Add the creamy peanut butter, eggs, and sugar to your mashed bananas. Mix until well combined. The peanut butter adds a rich, nutty flavor and a touch of creaminess, creating a wonderful texture that complements the sweet bananas perfectly.

Combine Dry Ingredients In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Slowly incorporate these dry ingredients into the wet mixture. This step ensures your Banana Peanut Butter Muffins rise well and have a light, fluffy texture.

Fill the Muffin Tins Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tins, filling each cup about three-quarters full. This allows enough space for the muffins to rise. Ensure each muffin has an even amount of batter to bake uniformly and look great when done.

Bake to Perfection Place the tins in the preheated oven and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let your Banana Peanut Butter Muffins cool on a wire rack. Enjoy warm or store them for a delicious snack later.
