Sitting down to a complete breakfast meal is a bit of a challenge for me. See, my morning ritual involves waking up at 6:30AM while constantly slamming on the snooze button, leaving me to wake up at 7:00AM. By then, I’m obviously so late to work, yet I still check my email, my blog comments, my twitter, my Facebook and my Pinterest accounts. Yeah, it’s exhausting.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    These are outstanding—I love how your recipes always come out perfectly first time, Chungah! I had to use Reese’s peanut butter chips instead of chocolate ones (in lockdown baking supplies are scarce!), but they worked really well. Thank you so much!

  3. Rated 4 out of 5

    These are delicious. I skipped the sugar, added 1/4 cup of oats, and an extra egg, it turned out great. Thank you for the recipe!

    These sound so good! I will update this after I make them. I was looking for a high protein tasty muffin with some TEXTURE. This sounds perfect. Super excited to give them a try!!!

  5. Can you use frozen bananas?

  6. Could I substitute cooked/mashed sweet potato for banana? My boyfriend is allergic…but I LOVE the other ingredients.

    • Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

  7. Hi, is this natural peanut butter that you use. that is generally all we buy but wanted to check. thanks K

  8. I have everything on hand, except the greek yogurt … what could I substitute that with?

  9. Can these be made with smooth peanut butter if I don’t have any chunky on hand?

    • Yes, of course!

      These are a family favorite! My kids ask that I buy extra bananas when we grocery shop just so we can make these muffins. We love these for breakfast or a quick snack and they are so tender and flavorful. Thanks for such an easy delicious recipe!

  10. I made these today and when I checked them at 11-13 minutes there was no way they were cooked. I left them for a total of 22 minutes which was perfect and they were delicious. I also added a little more flour because all my other muffin recipes call for about 2 cups of flour. With the extra flour and time they turned out great. I will make them again with the recipe changes.

    • Sandy, baking time can be longer with higher altitude so yes, please make the adjustments accordingly to ensure that your muffins are completely cooked through.
