Peanut butter and banana go together like leaves and fall. Peanut butter and banana go together like giraffe and tall.

Peanut butter and banana go together like hat and head. Peanut butter and banana go together like pillow and bed.

Oh sorry – got a little carried away there. I think I’ve read my daughters latest favourite book, We Go Together one too many times.

But it is so true – peanut butter and banana are one of those classic combos that never gets old. Unlike this book that I could do without right about now.

And they sure do go together in these delicious and healthy muffins. The banana, peanut butter, and eggs, all combine to add structure to these muffins so that absolutely no flour is needed. I too was shocked with the result but these are tender, fluffy, and very moist. Three important muffin qualities.

The other amazing things about these muffins is how easy they are. Like so easy you literally need one bowl, one whisk, and about 5 minutes. And for all that hard work, you have the perfect snack or breakfast at your fingertips.

While I may be sick of that book, I am definitely not sick of these muffins!
