These Gluten Free Peanut Butter Banana Muffins will remind you of banana bread with the added bonus of peanut butter flavor.
I’m getting good at making recipes with powdered peanut butter:
But usually, in these recipes the powdered peanut butter is replacing regular peanut butter. Not in this case. I’ve used the powdered peanut butter in place of some flour to help make these muffins gluten-free.
Do I have to use peanut butter or will almond butter work?
Almond butter should work, although I haven’t tested it. But I have baked with it before in this Recipe. Just know that the flavor will be slightly different.
Do I have to use creamy peanut butter or will crunchy peanut butter work?
I haven’t tested it, but I would assume crunchy peanut butter would work ok. The texture might be off a bit with the tiny pieces of peanuts in the muffin.
How important it is to use overripe bananas in this peanut butter banana muffin recipe?
It’s pretty important. Not only does the banana flavor become more pronounced, but overripe bananas are sweeter and creamier. These 2 qualities definitely help yield a better muffin.
Can I make these without any added refined sugar?
This recipe only calls for 1/4 cup sugar, so you could potentially omit it. Your muffin won’t be as sweet (obviously) and may not be quite as tender. Another option is to try coconut sugar if you prefer it over regular sugar. Or try an erythritol-based sweetener, such as Swerve.
