Peanut Butter-Banana Muffins Recipe

These bite-size muffins make a great treat. Banana and peanut butter are ideal partners and taste terrific with chocolate. —Patty Putter, Marion, Kansas

"I think this is a great recipe. I did not use the peanuts on top. I also added wheat germ and it tasted great, still. The quality of these only lasts for 2 days, so I freeze the extras and then pop them in the microwave for breakfast. I've made them as regular size muffins (cooked them a bit longer) and they were still good. Yummy!!"

"I absolutely love this recipe! I make a loaf of bread instead of mini muffins. I have made it for several people and always get great compliments. It truly is the best banana bread recipe I have ever tasted. Hearty, healthy and delicious you can't beat that!"

"I tweaked the recipe a bit (a little healthier, but also didn't have everything I needed). I cut the sugar to 1/3 cup, replaced the egg with flaxmeal equivalent (1TB ground flax + 3 TB water), used 1/2 cup chips and topped each with a little wheat germ. The kids LOVED them, and so did we!!"

"We all thought the muffins were very good~I split the morsels making half w/ and half w/o and I will always from now on make it w/ the morsels~I also didn't put the topping on to cut down just a bit on the calories and they were very tasty that way~every little bit helps!"

"Even though I wouldn't make these again myself, I certainly wouldn't suggest others not try these muffins. They are moist and tasty. For me personally, there are a few too many ingredients and more importantly the calorie count is just a little on the high side for such a small serving. But if you can spare the calories and the time you might like to try these delicious little morsels!"
