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.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 8 muffins
Ingredients – Muffins:
2 1/2 cups rolled oats
2 very ripe bananas
1/4 cup peanut butter or other nut butter
3/4 cup almond milk or milk
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
optional: 1/2 cup nuts or chocolate chips
Ingredients – Crumb Topping:
1/2 cups rolled oats
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup sugar
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Place 1 1/2 cups rolled oats into blender and blend on high until a fine powder forms. This is your oatflour. Place oatflour in a bowl and add remaining 1 cup rolled oats. Add baking soda and salt. Mix well with a spoon.
3. Peel bananas, break into pieces, and place the pieces into blender, along with peanut butter and almond milk. Blend on high speed until liquified. Remove from blender, pour into bowl of dry ingredients, and mix gently. Add in nuts and/or chocolate if desired.
4. Pour batter into a lined or lightly greased muffin tray, filling each muffin cup about 3/4 of the way full.
5. Assemble crumb topping in a small bowl by combining the 1/2 cup oats, 1/3 cup peanut butter, and 1/4 cup sugar. Mix with a fork or form crumbs with fingers.
6. Sprinkle crumb topping on top of each muffin and place in the oven. Bake for 30 minutes or until lightly brown and fragrant and a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin is clean upon removal. Enjoy!
