Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Muffins
Peanut butter and bananas are one of those magical flavor combinations that many of us fell in love with growing up and continue to crave as adults. These Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Muffins have great peanut butter & banana flavor and the oats give them a thicker, denser texture than your typical muffin. Make sure you use ripe bananas to maximize the banana flavor. If you use bananas the day you bring them home from the store when they still have some green on the peel your muffins won’t pack the same banana punch as if you wait a few days for them to ripen!

These look delicious! I feel like my life is going to be taken over by full time cooking! 😉
Mine sure has been! haha
Can’t wait to try these!
Thanks, hope you like them!
Hi Emily. Can reduced fat peanut butter be used in this recipe?
I’ve never had reduced fat peanut butter but I don’t see why not! Let me know how it turns out. 🙂
Made these with reduced fat PB and they turned out great.
Glad they were good!
I made them with reduced fat Peanut Butter. They were delicious. Plus I recalculated the points on Weight Watchers web site and it changed them from 4 Pts+ to 3 Pts+ each.
I try to keep my sugar low,so I wonder when the recipes only call for brown sugar not white if I could replace it with stevia? Hmmm. I think I’ll try with these tomorrow.
I don’t really use artificial sweeteners, so I’m not sure. I hope they turn out yummy!
Think you could use Almond butter instead of pb?
Sure! Hope they are good! 🙂
These were great! Sprinkled some choc. chips on a few for the kids and they LOVED them.
I’m so happy they were a hit! 🙂
I’m wondering about using PB2 …I think I’ll give it a try! 🙂
Could you substitute regular flour for the whole wheat?
I made these today and they were amazing! Thank you for all your recipes! I am so glad I stumbled onto your blog! 🙂
Your blog is AMAZING! This is now my go to site for recipes. These are very WW and kid friendly. I was wondering if you ever did a blog post for kid friendly snacks/meals… if so I would love to check it out.
Made these as dessert (made the amazing lasagn cupcake for dinner w ground turkey) and did half with added mini chocolate chips for my niece and nephew. HUGE hit. I forgot to spray the cupcake holders so they stuck, but everyone just gnawed the bits off the wrapper! I think these would also be good with a light cream cheese peanut butter frosting to jazz them up for a dessert. Thnks Emily for helping me make a great healthy meal!
I forgot to say I also used reduced fat peanut butter bc that’s what I had on hand. Delic. Next time I may lighten them up even more by adding PB2!
Peanut butter + bananas = fabulous! Can’t wait to try these. 🙂
Thank you so much for all of your recipes. I just started weight watchers and I’m fairly certain your blog was the best thing I found. All of them are simple and delicious (well, the ones we’ve tried so far, including this one)
Thank you very much!
Can you use quick oats instead of old-fashioned?
I forgot buttermilk can I use skim milk or whole milk?
Nice tasting muffins with only 4 points! Love them!
