Peanut butter, banana and sultana muffins are the perfect workout fuel or post training treat.. !
I bought this product called PB2 by Bell Plantation at my local health food store and it’s an interesting way to add peanut butter to your diet without as many calories from fat. The webpage had a lot of recipes. Essentially it’s like a powdered peanut butter replacement with 85% less fat than normal peanut butter
I just added a 3/4 cup into my usual blueberry muffin recipe but subbed in bananas for a fruity twist.
The best part about this is that it is one I mixed in two bowls without any fancy utensils 🙂
2 cups self raising flour (I use wholemeal) Or 2 cups plain wholemeal flour plus 1 tablespoon baking soda. Wholemeal will make the mix a little heavier and higher in fibre. I like the heavy texture as it’s more filling but sometimes it is not a light as white flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup PB2 powder or 1/2 cup peanut butter of your choice (melted)
3/4 cup sultanas – break these up a little if they are clumping together
2 large ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup rice bran oil
Pre heat oven to 180degrees
Grease muffin two 12 cup muffin tins. As an option you can line with paper if you like.
In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients together until well combined.
In a smaller bowl mix the wet ingredients until well combined. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir well making sure there are no dry lumps of flour.
Spoon tablespoons of the mix into the pan and bake until cooked for 15-18mins
If making larger muffins you should be able to make around 15
If smaller, makes about 18 -20
