Banana and Peanut Butter Muffins

Banana and Peanut Butter Muffins

YIELD: 12 servings (serving size: 1 muffin)
214 calories per muffin

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
4 tablespoons natural bran
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
3 small bananas
2 tablespoons natural peanut butter
1 cup low-fat buttermilk
1/4 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup boiling water
Cooking spray


Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 7 ingredients (through salt) in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Stir in oats, bananas and peanut butter. Make a well in center of mixture. Combine buttermilk, oil, vanilla, and egg; add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Stir in boiling water. Let batter stand 15 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375°.
Spoon batter into 12 muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Bake at 160 for 20 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched lightly in center. Remove muffins from pans immediately; place on a wire rack

They did stick a lil when taking them out of the muffin tray but i think that may have been that it needed more liberal cooking spray on the tray.
