  • 16 foil baking cups or use Baker's Release spray
  • 1 large muffin tin


Muffin Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped dry roasted peanuts
  • 1 cup mashed ripe banana
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 6 tablespoons melted butter cooled to room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten

Crumb Topping ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup chopped dry roasted peanuts
  • 1/4 cup chopped dried sweetened banana chips
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter cooled to room temperature


  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Sift together in a mixing bowl the all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Stir in the granulated sugar and chopped peanuts.
  • Beat eggs lightly with a fork in  another small mixing bowl.
  • Stir in the banana,  peanut butter, melted butter, and vanilla.
  • Place baking cups in the cavity of a muffin pan or spray with Baker's Release spray.
  • Fill baking cups about 2/3 full with batter (about ¼ cup.)
  • Mix together the ingredients for the streusel In another small bowl, until crumbly but well combined.
  • Divide streusel by sprinkling evenly over batter.
  • Bake muffins in the preheated 350° F. oven for about 20 minutes or until you can insert a toothpick into a muffin and remove it without wet batter sticking to it.
  • Cool 5 minutes in the muffin pan, then gently turn out muffins and finish cooling on a wire rack.


Baking Tip:
Do not overfill baking cups. If you overfill, the batter with not create a domed top on the muffin but will spill over the sides of the pan and spread excessively as well as set off the baking time.

  1. I love the addition of the banana chips and peanuts to the topping. Banana chips are a beloved snack here in Jamaica but we only get the salted, never sweet. I can’t wait to use them in a sweet preparation.

    • The banana chips I use do taste sweet overall. I’m not sure if they use honey or sugar in the prep. They taste a bit different from say, plantain chips.
