I have always had a fear of baking. The last time I baked was two years ago and nothing could salvage the horrible brownies mix I made that day!

Fast forward two years, I decided to conquer my fear of baking by making healthy, almost guilt-free muffins, and the result was AMAZING! So after careful research and a lot of drooling over heavenly looking muffins pictures on Instagram, I came up with this simple recipe which you should definitely try for these three reasons:

  • It is so easy that my three year old niece can do it (well probably she still can’t but you know what I mean).
  • It is definitely healthier and cheaper than those freakishly giant muffins you see in coffee shops.
  • You can make the recipe your own by adding your favorite ingredient to the mix. You can also make it gluten free.


Step 1

Start by preheating the oven to 400 degrees F or 250 C.

Step 2

Peel the banana and mash it inside a large bowl using a fork.

Step 3

Add the peanut butter, honey, vanilla powder, brown sugar and mix well using a kitchen whisker.

Step 4

Add the egg, baking soda, baking powder, salt, flour, oats, chocolate chips and blend all together.

Step 5

Grease the muffin cavities with a little bit of butter.

Step 6

Using a tablespoon, scoop the mix into each muffin cavity.
