I have an assistant in the kitchen these days. She learned how to say “up” and requests to sit on the counter every time I make anything. As “helpful” as she is, I have to work quick before she drops something or adds in a mystery ingredient.

 I wanted to make something that wasn’t a traditional sugary baked good. Julia has a newfound love of chocolate chips but I am pretty careful about what she eats. These super simple muffins are flourless, oil free, and free of refined sugar. Plus, they’re mini so they’re perfect for her little hands. Even my mom commented on how good they are and she doesn’t share my love of chocolate + peanut butter.

I also wanted to make something in the blender because sometimes I don’t feel like getting out the mixer and like I said, I need to move quick. The blender doesn’t just have to be for drinks and smoothies! (though I make an excellent vodka slushy…)

INGREDIENTS

Below is a list of ingredients and helpful tips. Scroll down for the full recipe card.

BANANA – A ripe, medium banana. Cut into approximately 1″ pieces.
EGG – One large egg.
PEANUT BUTTER – Creamy peanut butter.
HONEY
VANILLA EXTRACT – For the best flavor, use pure vanilla extract and not imitation. I know it is pricey but I buy it in bulk at Sam’s Club or Costco.
BAKING SODA – For rise.
SALT – For balance.
MINI CHOCOLATE CHIPS – Optional, but chocolate chips pair perfectly with peanut butter and banana.

TOOLS FOUND ON AMAZON TO HELP YOU
Blender – You don’t even need a mixing bowl for this recipe because you mix the whole thing in the blender. You don’t need a fancy one.
Mini Muffin Pan – I also use this pan to make peanut butter brownie bites.
Cookie Scoop – Using a cookie scoop makes portioning out the batter so easy. I have all sizes.

    Excellent and addictive

  2. Mish says

    I love these muffins but found out my fiancé is allergic to peanuts. Can I substitute cashew butter or sunflower butter?

    • Melissa Williams says

      Hi Mish. I have not tested with cashew or sunflower butter. A Google search says cashew butter can be substituted 1:1 with peanut butter in baking, but you lose flavor. I’m thinking you might be better off finding a cashew butter-specific recipe, but if you try, let me know!

    • Mish says

      Melissa! I tried with cashew butter today and it tastes sweeter, less salty. But still very very good!

    • Melissa Williams says

      Oh good! I read that bit about adding extra salt, but I forgot to mention it. Thanks for reporting back!

    • Melanie says

      I have been using sunflower butter and they are delicious

  3. Dee Sopland says

    Is there no flour in this recipe for banana,peanut butter chocolate chip muffins

    I made these twice with baking soda. They were delicious, but did not rise at all. I made these today and put the same amount of baking powder. They came out just like the picture shown here

    • Melissa Williams says

      I’ve made these so many times but now I need to test again to see if I typo’d…

    Thank you so much for this muffin recipe, my kids love them! I was wondering if I could add an extra egg for more protein? Thanks!

    • Melissa Williams says

      I’m glad your kids like them! I haven’t tested with an additional egg to see how much it changes things.

  7. Michelle says

    No flour? Turned out flat and dense. Took forever to cook.

    • Melissa Williams says

      Hmm, they do sink a bit but they only take 8-9 minutes (not “forever”). Is your baking powder fresh?

  8. Jennifer says

    Is this semi sweet choc chips? Or regular choc chips. I can only find mini semi sweet chips.

    • Melissa Williams says

      Whichever you like will work, but yes, these are semi sweet.
