Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

IMG_6997I love this healthier version of peanut butter banana muffins!  Whole wheat, dairy-free, and no refined sugars.  This recipe will yield 12 muffins.  If a strong peanut butter taste is not your thing, I suggest cutting the peanut butter to 1/4 or 1/3 cup.  If you have peanuts handy, you can top these with crushed peanuts and/or add into the batter.  Enjoy!
