Serves: 12


2 ripe large bananas, mashed
¼ cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup whole-milk plain Greek yogurt
1 large egg
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 ¾ cups white whole wheat flour
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt


1. Preheat oven to 425°F degrees. Line a 12-count muffin pan with muffin liners or spray with nonstick spray. Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, mix the mashed bananas, maple syrup, yogurt, egg, milk, peanut butter, and vanilla together until smooth.
