Peanut Butter and Banana Muffins

Makes: 12 servings
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes

1/2 cup finely chopped peanuts
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup packed brown sugar, divided
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 large eggs
3/4 cup fat-free Greek yogurt
2 ripe Dole bananas, mashed

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat muffin cups with canola oil or line with muffin liners.

Combine peanuts, cinnamon, and 1/4 cup brown sugar in a small bowl. Set aside.

Combine remaining 1/2 cup brown sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt in another bowl. Set aside.

Combine peanut butter and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Whisk until smooth. Whisk in yogurt and bananas. Stir in flour mixture. Batter will be very thick. Scoop mixture into prepared muffin cups (use a spring-loaded ice cream scoop if you have one). Sprinkle a tablespoon of peanut mixture on top of each muffin.

Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes. Transfer to a rack and let cool completely.
