Servings 18


  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 T. ground flaxseed meal
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 T. no sugar added applesauce
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar lightly packed
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 cup mashed banana about 3 medium bananas, the more ripe the better!
  • 6 T. creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup low-fat milk I have used skim or 1%, but whatever you have would probably work great including buttermilk


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a muffin tin with paper liners.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ground flaxseed meal, and cinnamon.
  • In another large bowl whisk together the applesauce, brown sugar, eggs, banana, peanut butter, and milk.
  • Next add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir together until just combined. (it might be a little lumpy, that is totally ok)
  • Fill prepared muffin cups with batter and bake for 18-20 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.
  • Allow muffins to cool for 5-10 minutes then let them cool completely on a wire cooling rack.
