Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

My wonderful sister in law sent me this recipe. They turned out great! Dan ate two as soon as they were out of the oven :) Here is a high in fiber, low in fat and high protein muffin recipe! Thanks Claire!  Here's what you need:

2/3 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup mashed bananas
3/4 cup plain yogurt
3 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup sunflower seeds (optional)
2 tablespoons unsweetened strawberry conserve, or jam. (I used our apple cinnamon homemade jam..we didn't have any strawberry)
peanuts for garnish (optional)

Preheat oven at 400 degrees. 
Grease 12 muffin cups
In a bowl mix together peanut butter, bananas, yogurt or buttermilk, honey, vanilla and eggs
In another bowl combine the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda, stir together and add to wet ingredients.
Stir in sunflower seeds.
Half fill the muffin cups, top with a teaspoon of conserve, then top with remaining batter and sprinkle with peanuts and sunflower seeds.

Bake for 20-25min until golden brown
Happy Tuesday everyone! (Sorry for posting a day late!)
Be ready for next week! I will be sharing some great Christmas baking!
