Banana, Peanut Butter and Oat muffins

Well thanks to Icook4fun of Kitchen Snippets I was one of the lucky recipients of her giveaway. I received my copy of Muffins Galore early this week, and what way to enjoy the book, but to bake something from it.

I opted for these Banana, Peanut butter and oat muffins as I had all the ingredients to hand and the bananas were ripe, ripe, ripe. These are definitely what I would call Breakfast muffins. Something about the texture reminded me of sticky toffee pudding too, which I think is only a good thing. If the rest of the muffins in this book are this delicious, I can’t wait to try them.
Anyway, seeing that Elvis would have celebrated his 75th birthday this week, I as wondering what Elvis Presley would have made of these peanut butter and banana muffins?! After all it was reputed that he was a big fan of peanut butter and banana sandwiches.
Banana, Peanut Butter and Oat muffins
Makes 12
1 ½ cup of plain flour
1 cup of rolled oats
¼ cup of light brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1/3 cup crunch peanut butter
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 very ripe banana’s peeled and mashed
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to gas mark 5. Line a muffin pan with paper cups. Mix the flour and oats in a large bowl, then stir in the brown sugar. Add the baking powder and salt and stir to mix. In another bowl, mix together the peanut butter, milk, maple syrup, egg and mashed bananas until well blended. Add the wet ingredients all at once to the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Evenly spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups. Mix together the sugar and cinnamon, then sprinkle it generously over the tops of the muffins. Bake in oven for 20 – 25 minutes or until risen and golden. From Catherine Atkinson’s Muffins Galore


  1. Glad that you received the book and enjoying trying out some of the recipes in there. Take care.

  2. Congratulations Mangocheeks in being one of the lucky recipents. Those muffins look and sound like they would be addictive, and that you wouldnt be able to stop at just the one......

  3. I am sure elvis would have loved these - as would I - I also have the ingredients to these so I am very tempted - fortunately - or sadly (depending on your perspective) I am too tired tonight

  4. Once again, Thank you so much ICook4Fun. Most appreciated and I will enjoy baking from it.

    Thanks James, they are pretty good. Almost finger licking with the stickiness of the peanut butter.

    Thanks Johanna.
    I would definately recommend making them at some point.

  5. Lovely muffins. The texture looks so soft and the pic inviting. Looking forward for many more muffins in the future :):)


  6. Thanks Ms Chitchat.
    I will be making many more in the future. Not good for my waistline, but good for the belly.
