Peanut Butter Truffle Centered Banana Bread Muffins

I just love summer when the boys and I can bake together regularly. This is exactly what we did about a week ago, we played in the kitchen and came up with these yummy peanut butter truffle filled banana muffins.

These are simple, kid friendly and peanut buttery delicious. Please excuse my Instagram fetish, it is so convenient during the summer when time is of the essence with my little stinkers.

Hope you all enjoy! xoxo

You start with a simple one bowl banana bread recipe and your favorite kitchen helpers πŸ™‚

Prepare a simple peanut butter truffle mixture and scoop it into the bottom of your 12 cupcake cups.

Top that peanut butter filling with your banana bread batter and bake.

Here’s a glimpse of your muffins right out of the oven. Wait until you enjoy the aroma!

There’s the ridiculous peanut butter truffle centers πŸ™‚Β  Love these πŸ™‚


Peanut Butter Truffle Centered Banana Bread Muffins

1 1/4 cups creamy peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar

2 large ripe bananas or 3 small

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup light packed brown sugar

1 large egg

1 cup buttermilk

1 1/4 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a 12 cup muffin tin with cupcake liners.

2. Place peanut butter and powdered sugar into a medium bowl, mixing until well combined. With a small cookie scoop, scoop evenly into the bottom of lined cupcake cups.

3. In a large bowl mash bananas until well mashed. Stir in sugars, egg and buttermilk until well combined. Slowly add flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon until just combined. Evenly scoop batter over peanut butter truffle filled cups, about 3/4 full. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until cooked through. Let cool completely and serve.

*Note:Β  After these finished photos I re-worked the banana bread recipe a touch so it was even more moist, so the texture of your muffins may look just slightly different than these photos πŸ™‚Β  Never fear, they are incredible!!* xoxo

*Note #2:Β  You can also choose to place your dollops of peanut butter truffle mix on top of the banana bread batter rather than on the bottom. Either way is scrumptious, just a slightly different look πŸ™‚

Makes 12 servings


Β Have a beautiful rest of your week, see y’all soon πŸ™‚Β  Happy Summer!

    Jenny they look sooooo good! I love the combo of PB centers + banana because really, Pb and banana just GO together!

    And I love all the IG pics of your boys. “Nashville” is one of my fave filters. I could honestly use that setting/filter for ALL my pics.

    And I could seriously take ALL my pics on my iphone lately, I swear. I love my new Canon 5D <–my new lover! but I also love my iphone and IG. No apologies necessary about loving it πŸ™‚

    These look great… Unfortunately my husband does not like peanut butter – wonder how it would be using Nutella in place of the peanut butter?

    Ohhh I need to try these with a chocolate cupcake I think, kinda like a giant, cakey version of a Reese’s peanut butter cup… Nothing better than chocolate and peanut butter!!

    I love peanut butter and banana. These look amazing. You must have lots of patience to bake with your boys. I try to with my girls, but it always gets so chaotic. I usually save certain steps for them, but I would love to get to the point where they can help me with an entire recipe. Thanks for sharing this!

    what brand of cupcake liners are those and where did you get them?

    • 33.1
      Jenny says:

      Hi Val, I picked up the cupcake liners at the grocery store here in CA, they are by Reynolds (the same company who makes Reynolds Wrap). I have seen them numerous places. Look for the ones with the foil lining. They keep their color and shape perfectly!!

  34. 34

    Those look really, really good! Love the adorable pics of you and your boys!

    Your kids are SO cute! I love the picture of them holding the muffin tray. The muffins also look scrumptious. I really enjoy reading your blog πŸ™‚

    Angela says:

    I have some adorable cupcake liners, but when I use them they tend to just blend right into the cupcake or muffins and you can’t see the cute design. How did you make yours stay so cute and vibrant? Did you put them on after baking?

    • 39.1
      Jenny says:

      Hi Angela,
      I just bought those liners right at the grocery store. I’ve even seen them at Target. They have a foil liner which keeps the form and bright colors stay. Love it!
