Weight Watchers: Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

Many years ago I picked up a muffin at a local bakery and absolutely fell in love.  Little did I know it was a special promo only for Elvis’s birthday.  For years I searched for a similar muffin and only found this Peanut Butter Banana Muffins recipe in its full fat version in a Taste of Home magazine a few years ago.  I have since used the base listed there and created a healthier version that has become a regular breakfast or snack item for our whole family.

Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/8 Cup All Purpose Flour
  • ¾ Cup Quick Oats
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1/3 Cup Splenda Brown Sugar Substitute
  • 3 Ripe Bananas Mashed
  • 1 Cup Nonfat Milk
  • 2 Egg Whites
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ½ Cup PB2 Prepared (Peanut Butter Substitute found in organic section of most stores)
  • 1/8 Cup Crushed Peanuts (optional)

 

Directions:

Get ready to cook your muffins by preheating your oven to 375 degrees and spraying a muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, sift together your flour, Splenda brown sugar substitute and baking powder. Sifting these together will make them well blended and keep your muffins light and fluffy.

In a separate large bowl, mash your bananas together with milk, egg whites, vanilla, and your PB2 peanut butter substitute. Once well blended, mix oats into this mixture.

Then, slowly mix in your flour mixture until just blended and wet. Be careful to not over mix.

Spoon into muffin tin and bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

(Note, my images show a spoonful of regular peanut butter, as I didn’t have any P2B on hand when I made up this particular batch. The muffins are great either way!)

These will become a favorite snack and breakfast item for the whole family and with the lower calories will please everyone and their diet requirements.  At only 3 ½ Points per muffin you can’t beat this as a great breakfast alongside fresh fruit and yogurt.
