One bowl and just a few simple ingredients is all it takes to make these super moist and crazy good flourless peanut butter banana muffins.
I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before – peanut butter is one of my favorite little comfort foods. While we usually eat almond butter, cashew butter, or sunflower seed butter on the daily, sometimes life just calls for a little peanut butter.
Don’t you agree?
And what’s better with peanut butter than a little naturally sweet banana and maybe a few dark chocolate chips? That’s what I’m talking about. And that’s exactly what I did this morning when I was craving something a little sweet.
I’ve made flourless nut butter recipes before (like these flourless chocolate chip cookies), but I have to admit that I was unsure how the simple ingredients would come together as a muffin. Oh my goodness, I am so happy with the results. The texture is perfectly moist and cakey.
Here’s the recipe deets:
peanut butter… I use an organic, natural peanut butter with no added sweeteners. I prefer creamy but feel free to use crunchy if that’s your jam.
banana… super ripe bananas give the best flavor – ones with no green left on them and starting to have some dark spot. Unripe bananas will change the texture and will not be as sweet.
eggs… 2 large eggs help this magical flourless mixture come together and form a cakey, moist muffin that you are sure to love.
vanilla extract… to round out the flavors a bit.
salt… because salty sweet is so good. If your peanut butter has added salt, you can leave the salt out.
maple syrup… totally optional, especially if your bananas are extra ripe and sweet. I like to add just a bit to sweeten things up.
chocolate chips… also optional, but oh so good! I like to use dairy and nut free dark chocolate chips.
So if you’re looking for a super simple (and crazy good) muffin recipe, these peanut banana muffins are it! Perfect for a little treat. Healthy enough to feel good about eating them. My little one was the taste tester for this recipe, and all she could say was “Mmmmmmm! These are SO good.”
Peanut butter + banana + dark chocolate chips = heaven

One bowl and just a few simple ingredients is all it takes to make these super moist and crazy good flourless peanut butter banana muffins. Gluten free and grain free.
- Preheat oven to 350’F. Liberally grease 9 muffin cups in a muffin pan. **
- In a large bowl, mash bananas until completely smooth. Whisk in eggs. Then stir in peanut butter, baking powder, salt, and optional maple syrup. Gently fold in chocolate chips.
- Fill 9 muffin cups about 3/4 full with batter and sprinkle with a few extra chocolate chips, if desired.
- Bake for 13-15 minutes, until firm and lightly golden. Allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before removing from pan. Enjoy!
I use a creamy, organic, unsweetened, and unsalted peanut butter with only one ingredient (dry roasted peanuts). Feel free to use crunchy if you like. And if your PB contains salt, I would leave out the extra salt in the recipe.
When baking less than 12 muffins in a muffin tin, I like to fill each empty cup with a few tablespoons of water. This will promote even baking.
