These healthy chocolate banana muffins, drizzled with creamy peanut butter, are a nutritious snack. But they satisfy every rich, sweet, chocolate craving!



  • 3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup 100% whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup natural 100% unsweetened cocoa powder (cacoa powder)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 medium bananas, peeled
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 organic pastured eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup organic peanut butter, sugar and salt added


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, stir and combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a second mixing bowl, add the peeled bananas. Mash the bananas into a thick purée by mashing with a potato masher (or purée with a blender or food processor). Add the olive oil, eggs, and sugar. Stir until well combined.
  4. Pour the banana mixture into the flour mixture. Stir until batter is smooth and well combined.
  5. Arrange baking cups in a muffin pan. Spoon batter into baking cups, filling a bit more than 3/4 of the way to the top of each baking cup.
  6. Bake until the tops spring back when touched. Or until a toothpick dipped into the center of each muffin comes away without any batter clinging to it, about 15-20 minutes.
  7. Allow muffins to cool, about 5 minutes.
  8. Heat peanut butter in a heat-safe bowl in the microwave until melted, about 1 minute. Stir until smooth.
  9. Use a small spatula to spread about a tablespoon of peanut butter over the top of each muffin. Serve.
