Long time no recipe! It’s been a while since the last recipe because as you know I haven’t been feeling uber creative in the kitchen lately. But when you open up your freezer to find 12 frozen overripe bananas, you can’t help but experiment.

Banana bread probably would have been my go-to, but I already nailed it with this recipe so I thought I would change things up. Plus there is nothing that beats bananas + peanut butter.

I initially thought this recipe would be perfect for those back-to-schoolers, but then remembered that peanuts are kind of a no-no at school. So really these are for the non-back-schoolers who still get nostalgic when September hits.

Did anyone else get an immense craving to go highlighter shopping? Just me?

But whether or not you’re going back to school, make these Healthy Banana Peanut Butter Muffins. Your freezer will thank you.

    These sound so tasty and simple. But I will have to wait until my bananas become VERY ripe! 😉

    These look so easy and DELICIOUS and they would be perfect with NuttZo! I actually have a decent amount of frozen bananas in the freezer…Maybe it is time to bake! The perfect time to make them is on a grey and rainy Nantucket day!

    Absolutely delicious! PB and Banana is always a winning combo in my books – I’ll have to freeze these cause I don’t know if I would be able to only eat just one or two a day if not! 😛

    I love September and am always hit with back to school nostalgia, I’m the kid who loved going back to school, when classes started and it was time to buy new pens and notebooks and all those great staples!! 😀

    I love the combination of banana+peanut butter+oats, can’t wait to try these! Just so I know what to expect: are these dense, rather chewy and moist kind of muffins?

      Is it weird if I say they’re dense, chewy and moist? I find when they’re dense they’re pretty chewy and moist and when they’re lighter they’re fluffier and drier? But that’s just me!

    Is oat flour just blitzed porridge oatlets? I live in Ireland and have never seen oat flour but have baked with oats. Many thanks.

    Hi Davida,

    I’ve made and love so many of your recipes! Of all the foodie bloggers I follow, your recipes are the most consistently reliable and delicious. What a wicked last name BTW! Have you come up with a kugel recipe? There are so many kugel variations even within my family alone.

    These muffins are currently in the oven but I was all out of peanut butter so I used cashew butter. Substitutions are like a pet peeve for me but I made an exception during a hangry emergency. Thanks and keep rocking it xo

      Hi Natalie! Sorry for the delay in responding, I’ve been on the road for a few weeks! I haven’t come up with a kugel recipe as my mom’s peach kugel might be the ultimate and hard to top 😉 I hope you enjoyed the muffins. I love that recipe!

    Thank you! I used this recipe and it is awesome. Plus easy for a grab and go during my busy mornings.
