Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
After numerous attempts to find a peanut butter muffin, I finally found exactly what I wanted in a peanut butter muffin. These are moist and sweet and absolutely perfect for a breakfast treat, an afternoon snack or even for dessert. The sour cream and the banana help create a very moist muffin. These muffins freeze very well and remain moist when they are reheated at a later date. (These are the first PB muffins I have found that freeze well, without drying out. That is a huge success in my book!)

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins
recipe adapted from Picky Palate
Yield: 15 muffins
(printable recipe)

6  tbsp softened butter
2 eggs
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup sour cream
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour (I used freshly ground hard white wheat)
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together; butter, eggs, bananas, sour cream, sugar and peanut butter in a large mixing bowl. Whisk together dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Combine wet and dry ingredients and stir until just combined; then add chocolate chips. Scoop into muffin tins and then bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean from center. Enjoy!



  1. Absolutely fantastic!
    Thanks for sharing, you're wonderful! :)

  2. Numerous attempts? Considering that they have pb, chocolate chips and bananas in them, that couldn't have been too hard on you. ;)

  3. Looks amazing! I wanted to make these in mini muffins tin for a snack to preschool class. Do they rise too much? I wanted to know if I should fill the mini cups all the way or just half way.

    1. I'd fill them about 3/4 of the way. They have a pretty good rise. Enjoy!

    1. Not at all. Feel free to substitute all purpose flour. Enjoy!
