{Recipe} Peanut Butter Banana Sandwich Muffins for the Virtual Vegan Potluck

vvpLOGO 

Welcome! I’m excited to participate in my first Virtual Vegan Potluck – an online feast of plant-based food, where over a hundred food bloggers are coming together to share their amazing recipes. What am I bringing to this feast? These awesome sandwich muffins that I wish I always had on hand (for breakfasts, snacks, or potlucks.)

The idea for these muffins came to me while I was enjoying a peanut butter & banana sandwich. Why not make this yummy sandwich into a muffin? The results – so good.

Peanut Butter Banana Sandwich Muffins (vegan. oil-free. whole wheat.)

www.passtheveggies.com

yield: 12 muffins

Ingredients:

4 very ripe medium bananas

2 Tb. ground flax seed

3/4 cup warm non-dairy milk

1/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup peanut butter

1/4-1/3 cup agave or maple syrup (to taste)

1 Tb. vanilla extract

2 cups white whole wheat flour

1 Tb. baking powder

pinch of salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil a muffin tin and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mash two of the bananas. Slice the other two bananas into 1/4” thick rounds.
  3. In a cup, mix the ground flax seed and warm milk together and set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, peanut butter, agave or maple syrup, and vanilla. Add and mix in the mashed bananas and the flax/milk mixture.
  5. In another small bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together, then add it to the wet ingredients, and stir just until combined.
  6. To make the muffin “sandwiches”, put a heaping tablespoon of muffin batter into each muffin cup. Top the batter with 3 slices of banana, covering the batter. Now cover the bananas with the rest of the muffin batter, dividing the batter evenly among all 12 muffin cups.
  7. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until muffins are golden brown, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Enjoy your muffin sandwiches and the rest of the potluck!

I'm with Poppy below, how could a person go wrong with peanut butter and banana. I'm not a fan of Elvis, but the King certainly had it right and agreed. :)
