What you'll need:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup banana
  • (About 1 banana) mashed with a fork
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup nonfat dry milk
  • 1/4 cup frozen apple juice concentrate thawed
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons
  • Baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Nonstick spray

STEP 1
Preheat your oven to 350° F.

STEP 2
In a small bowl, beat the eggs. In a large bowl, mix the milk, mashed banana, peanut butter, vegetable oil, apple juice, dry milk and eggs from the previous mixture. Use a wooden spoon to combine your mixture.

STEP 3
Add the flour, baking powder, and baking soda into the large bowl and mix.

Line a muffin tin with paper liners. Spoon the mixture into lined tin, making sure that you fill the cup only until it’s 2/3 full. Bake for 15 minutes. When they’re done, cool them on a wire rack and spread some peanut butter on top!
