My lovely co-worker and fellow baker Christa brought these OH SO YUMMY muffins into work last week.  They were truly a treat.  They had just a hint of peanut butter and the white chocolate chips were a nice touch.  Don’t be fooled by these muffins though, they were yummy enough to be served as a dessert if you ask me!

What you need:

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated white sugar

  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3)

  • 1 cup milk
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips

What you do:

  • Flour: You can use all-purpose flour instead of whole wheat flour
  • Milk: Try using light soy milk
  • Chocolate Chips: Try using White chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Spray two 9×5-inch loaf pans (or muffin tins) with nonstick spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugars, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
  • In another bowl, combine mashed bananas, milk, peanut butter, vanilla and egg. Add to flour mixture, stirring until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Pour batter into prepared pans.
  • Bake 50 to 55 minutes (give it a check at 40 minutes), or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
