5 Ingredient Banana Blender Muffins with Peanut Butter Crumb Topping [Vegan]

IMG_0170

Another easy-peasy recipe for your enjoyment! Allow me to introduce you to these lovely Banana Muffins with a Peanut Butter Crumb Topping! Kind of a fun spin on classic crumb muffins but super easy, quick and nutritious, all made with things you most likely have around your kitchen. I wrote this recipe for Spoon University in a partnership with JC Penny, to help demonstrate great ways to use this blender for college students. Thus, this recipe is minimal ingredients, minimal prep, and still super duper delicious. The muffins themselves have no added sugar or oil, as bananas and peanut butter add plenty of natural sweetness and tenderness. The crumb topping has a little bit of sugar, but that never hurt no body. Other than that these are 100% whole grain, vegan, and legitimately tasty.

I actually totally did use the blender to make these muffins and I must say – that thing is nice! It can do anything a blender could ~ and more ! It could easily be used for smoothies and even has to-go cups/lids, and can also function as a food processor and slice, dice, and grind! It even came with shaker top lids for things like cheese and breadcrumbs. How nifty! Check out the original post here, and/or make the muffins from the recipe below.
