How to Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

Don’t these muffins sound sinful? Well, they’re not very sinful…In fact, they’re kind of healthy.

I use a whole wheat flour base instead of all-purpose flour, and add some nutritious ingredients that get “hidden” so that your family won’t even know they’re healthier for them! LOL

Type: Muffin Recipe
Serve With: Milk & Enjoy!
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 20-22 mins
Yield: 12 large muffins


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp wheat germ – Tip: I store mine in the freezer to keep it fresh!
  • 1 tbsp flax seeds – Tip: I store them in the freezer too!
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup shelled peanuts – * optional
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup water – or room temperature tea
  • 1/4 cup peanut oil – You may use vegetable oil if you prefer.
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter – smooth or chunky
  • 2 large, ripe bananas – mashed


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In large bowl, combine flour, wheat germ, flax seeds, baking powder baking soda, cocoa powder and peanuts.
  3. In smaller, flat-bottomed bowl, mash bananas, add oil, peanut butter, water, sugar and eggs. Mix thoroughly until all ingredients are evenly distributed.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir until mixed thoroughly.
  5. Pour mixture into greased loaf pan and bake in pre-heated oven for 40-50 min, or until knife inserted in middle comes out clean.
  6. Allow to cool for 10 min in pan, then remove from pan to cool on a wire rack.
