Healthy Banana & Peanut Butter Oat Streusel Muffins

Healthy Banana & Peanut Butter Oat Streusel Muffins – One of my healthiest and most scrumptious muffin recipes. Complete with Caramelized Bananas, Creamy Peanut Butter and a Streusel Topping.

Yields: 12


For the Muffins

2 medium bananas, peeled and sliced

1/4 cup light brown sugar, divided

2 tablespoons honey

2 large eggs

1 cup skim milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup oat flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/3 cup mini chocolate chips, optional

For the Streusel Topping

1/4 cup old-fashioned oats

1/4 cup whole wheat flour

2 tablespoons light brown sugar

2 tablespoons unsalted, butter melted


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a muffin pan with nonstick spray.

In a small bowl, toss banana slices and 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar together. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray and place sugar-coated banana slices in a single layer onto the baking sheet. Place in the preheated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until banana slices are golden brown.

Meanwhile, mix together the remaining brown sugar, honey, eggs, milk, vanilla, and peanut butter.

In another bowl, whisk together flours, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside.

Remove banana slices from the oven and place slices into another bowl. Mash up bananas and add to the wet ingredients. Mix to combine. Add dry ingredients and mix until incorporated (being careful not to overmix the batter. It’s okay if some lumps remain.). Fold in chocolate chips, if using.

Fill muffin cups with the batter (about 3/4 full) and set aside for a second.

Prepare streusel topping by mixing together all the ingredients together until a streusel topping forms. Top muffins equally with streusel topping and place in the oven. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.


Muffins will keep up to 5 days stored in an airtight container or up to 1 month in the freezer.
