How To Make Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Muffins
It’s very easy to make these blender oatmeal muffins with peanut butter.
All you need are:
- Ripe Bananas – the riper the bananas, the sweeter the muffins will be. I recommend using bananas with black skin and many dark spots for the best texture and flavor.
- Almond Milk or any non-dairy milk you love.
- Peanut Butter – choose natural peanut butter with no added salt, no added oil, or sugar.
- Apple Cider Vinegar or lemon juice
- Vanilla Extract
- Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats – for a gluten-free recipe, choose certified gluten-free oats.
- Coconut Sugar – This is optional. You don’t need to add any sweetener if your bananas are ripe.
- Baking Soda
- Baking Powder
You can add a crunchy texture to the muffin recipe by stirring in 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of one of the following ingredients:
- Chopped Nuts – walnuts and pecans taste delicious in peanut banana baked muffins.
- Dark Chocolate Chips – make sure to use vegan dark chocolate.
Making The Banana Muffin Blender Batter
Line a 12-hole muffin pan with muffins cups and lightly spray oil in the muffins cups to avoid the batter sticking to the paper. Set it aside.
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
In the jug of high-speed blender type Vitamix, add the banana, almond milk, peanut butter, apple cider vinegar, vanilla extract, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
Blend on the high-speed setting for about 30 to 45 seconds using the tamper attachment of the blender if needed to push down the ingredients to the batter and create a smooth muffin batter.
If you don’t have a tamper tool, stop the blender, scrape down the sides of the jug with a silicone spatula, and blend again until the batter is smooth with no oats pieces.
Set aside 5-10 minutes it rest the batter and avoids creating a hole in the center of the muffins when they bake.
You can also stir in the optional chopped nuts of chocolate chips at this time.
Fill each muffin cup up to 3/4 their level and bake the muffins in the center rack of the oven for about 25 to 35 minutes or until a pick inserted in the center of the muffins comes out clean.
Cool down the muffins on a cooling rack at room temperature.
You can store the banana peanut butter oatmeal muffins in a sealed box in the fridge for up to 4 days. It’s also possible to freeze them in zip-lock bags for up to 3 months.
Thaw at room temperature the day before.
You can tweak this banana muffin recipe to fit your food allergy. Some options are provided below
- Peanut-Free – Peanut butter can be replaced with any nut butter like almond butter or cashew butter.
- Nut-Free – you can replace the peanut butter with seed butter like tahini, sunflower seed butter, or pumpkin seed butter. Note that seed butter turns muffins slightly greenish. You can replace almond milk with nut-free milk like oat milk, hemp milk, or coconut milk.
