It’s a new year, a new start, and now is as good a time as any to make some changes. Nothing drastic here, I’ve already said and reiterate that I don’t like to make resolutions. But I’m determined to make this year better. We can start to do better by incorporating an extra boost of protein from fresh roasted peanuts in Jif Peanut Powder!

Part of doing better is providing my kids with better snack options. This is especially important for my oldest son, Jedi, who is type 1 diabetic. He needs balanced snacks on hand at all time in case his blood glucose levels drop too low, but I have to admit that I usually just send him off with whatever’s easiest. New year, though! Time to do better! Snacks with protein are especially great as not only is it essential for growing bodies, but the protein helps stabilize his blood sugar.

From the makers of our favorite peanut butter, Jif Peanut Powder has the same amount of nourishing protein as traditional peanut butter, but with 85% less fat as well as less calories and less sugar. And you can use it in so many ways, from smoothies to these Banana Bread Muffins!

A great breakfast, side dish, or snack to enjoy at home or Jedi can take to school, these Banana Bread Muffins are like your favorite banana bread, but in muffin form and perfect with a smear of butter! For the muffins, we picked up a package of Jif Peanut Powder at Walmart, located with the peanut butters, along with our other ingredients.

To make your Banana Bread Muffins, you first need bananas. Bananas, that’s a funny word to say and a funny word to type, too. In a large bowl, mash up 3 of them with a fork.

To that, add brown sugar, sugar, greek yogurt, a couple eggs, oil, Jif Peanut Powder, and water. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Then fold the flour mixture into the banana mixture.

Add to a prepared muffin, filling each about ¾ of the way full. Then bake at 350 for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Have some butter on hand and get ready to go bananas!

I’m telling you, bananas. It’s a fun word to type. And these Banana Bread Muffins are a yummy treat to eat whenever you feel like going a bit bananas.
