Flourless Peanut Butter Banana Muffins
makes 12 muffins

From: http://detoxinista.com

Ingredients:
1 cup natural organic peanut butter
2 very ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup mashed)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 whole eggs
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup honey (or stevia/other sweetener, to taste)
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Optional add-ins: 1/2 cup chocolate chips, or 1 cup fresh raspberries, or 1/2 cup dried raisins or cherries, or 1 sliced banana

Directions:
Preheat your oven to 350F and prepare a muffin tin with 12 paper liners.
In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients mix until smooth. At this point, you can fold in one of the optional add-ins, if desired.
Cook until golden, until a tooth pick inserted in the centers comes out clean 15-20 mins.

(Adding the fresh raspberries or dried fruit will make these taste like a ‘peanut butter and jelly’ muffin!)

They are quite good... when I first read the recipe I was worried that with all the peanut butter they would be high in calories, but that is not the case, per muffin I get 180 cals & only about 1/2 a daily nut serving.... definately worth a try (plus, they are great at breakfast)

Can you tell me please, how long did you bake these ? Sounds very good, although I have not made flourless muffins before. Thank, Linda

The recipe its self calls for 15 mins @ 350, I find with my oven I have to do it for 18 mins (until golden brown & an insterted tooth pick comes out clean)

***sorry, I didn't realise that I had left out the cooking time in the original recipe post, will fix that now***

These are excellent. The second batch, I dropped the cinnamon, they made them a bit weird to me (and added 1/2 c. choco chips!). The only problem is that my DH likes them to and I have to share...

We love these. I only had frozen bananas and wanted to use frozen blueberries so added 2 T flaxmeal to absorb extra liquid. They make a nice change for breakfast.

If you haven't checked out Detoxinista you should. She has great recipes and most are Beach friendly or easily tweakable. I also made her her banana walnut bread cookies last night.

ETA - I cut the sweetener to 2T (liquid coconut sugar) and will leave it out completely next time

These sound delicious!!! Has anyone tried substituting NSA applesauce in place of bananas? Sooty, but I just don't like their taste. I think I will be bold and use applesauce. Joe made a huge batch and didn't add sugar for me :)

I've never tried using apple sauce, but please post the results if you do end up using it, love to know how they turned out!

I was gonna ask the same thing. I don't like bananas and typically, when a recipe calls for them, I substitute with NSA applesauce. I may try it this week.

Made them today with applesauce. I used about a 1/3 of a cup. I was surprised how light they are! I skipped the cinnamon as the homemade applesauce had plenty. Also, I added some chopped walnuts and a 1/2 tsp unsweetened dark cocoa powder. I skipped the stevia/sweetener all together. I was afraid if they were a little sweet I might not be able to resist them. I will play around with the recipe a little more, but really pretty darn good!

Okay, non-SBDer here. I tried my best to stay as close to the recipe as I could. The difference was using 1/2 cup of peanut butter (it was all I had on hand and I already had started the eggs and banana before I realized my mistake), added an extra mashed banana, omitted the cinnamon and mixed in 1/2 cup old fashioned oats (half was mixed in and the other half was sprinkled/swirled on top.) I also baked it in a loaf pan instead of muffins.

I cannot believe it looks just like a "regular" banana bread without all that flour! Very excited to try it after it cools down and I will not say a word to the BF either. He's gonna freak, lol.

ETA- holy batman! They taste and look just like banana bread although with a hint of peanut butter! I'm glad I didn't have the whole cup on hand, I think that'd be way too peanutty for me. Thinking about trying this with pecan butter.

Has anyone used Stevia? If so how much?

KO I dont use Stevia, and I am not sure if you are referring to the liquid or powder form. However I did a quick Google search and came up with this site (http://www.livestrong.com/article/548423-how-to-substitute-sweetleaf-liquid-stevia-for-honey-in-baking/)... might help answer your question.

If I remember right, I added stevia, and just a couple of packets. Really doesn't need much with all that banana.

Nice to see you, KO!

I wanted to drop in and say thanks for this recipe. I am thinking of using PB2 (it's all the peanut butter I have), mix it up to make a cup's worth and giving it a try. YUM!
