Peanut Butter and Banana Muffins

Its the Saturday before March break and I am finally starting to wind down to enjoy my week off. I have planned to run some errands, get some appointments out of the way and do some baking. It is supposed to be +12 Monday so I thought instead of spending my day inside I would get a jump on the baking over this weekend which has turned out to be quite rainy and dull.

We buy a lot of bananas in our house. My kids have them for breakfast, in smoothies and their favourite as a peanut butter and banana sandwich. Hence the thought behind this combination. Bananas are heart friendly, aid in digestion, helps regulate blood sugar and help overcome depression due to high levels of tryptophan, which is converted into serotonin — the happy-mood brain neurotransmitter.

These muffins make a nice little snack with a fresh brewed coffee at 6.1g net carbs and 4 Weight Watchers points. They are delicious warm right out of the oven but just as good the next day, if there are any left.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
