Peanut Butter Mini Muffins
You’re going to want to make a double batch of these babies.
Peanut butter goodness in a little min-muffin.
This is probably one of my favorite snacks ever. I received the recipe from my friend Jen Colletti and when I googled it – many authors came up. I’m not sure who the original creator is so I am posting without credit. I have modified it to exclude the sugar and replaced the almond extract with vanilla. Feel free to add a little honey or maple syrup— but honestly—you won’t need it.
To make this FODMAP and SIBO friendly, make sure the banana is NOT ripe. Otherwise feel free to use any stage of ripeness you have on hand. The riper the banana the sweeter the muffin.
This recipe works best with a food processor or high-speed blender (but not necessary) and is messy-delicous to clean up!
