Peanut Butter Chocolate Bannana Muffins

Spread the love

The combination of peanut butter, chocolate, and bananas is one of my favorites especially during the winter months. A little dark chocolate, hot tea, a cozy muffin, or hot bowl of soup always hits the spot.

In an effort to add a little extra protein to this recipe, I’ve added Vanilla Vega Protein Powder. This is an optional step.

  1. These were delicious but the ingredients and directions were off. The ingredients list syrup but nothing was mentioned in the directions. Instead, honey was called for in directions but not in ingredient list. Also, “extra peanut butter for drizzling” was mentioned in the ingredients but nothing baked into the muffin, which eludes to that. Here is what I did and they were yummy: left out vanilla extract because I used vanilla protein powder AND honey greek yogurt (mixed with some plain regular yogurt). Left out the egg because it wasn’t in the directions. So good.

    1. Hi Laura, You may use honey or maple syrup – and I should have specified that. If you look at ingredient list, I recommended 1/4 cup peanut butter for drizzling. After reading your comment, I added the 1/4 cup (or more) measurement to the directions as well. Eggs should have been listed as “added to wet ingredients” – my apology that this was not clear. I am not a professional chef and have no help so I make mistakes. Thank you for you ‘going with it’ and making a yummy muffin! xx Leslie
