I’ve been on the move the past week plus, so I’m happy to be settling back into my normal routine.  I spent a few days in Southern California for my son’s water polo tournament, went to Boise for a few days with my husband, then made a quick trip to Reno for my uncle’s funeral.

The tournament and Boise were fun, and the funeral was a huge reunion with my cousins and their wives after many years.  Being with my cousins again was the spark we all needed in a time of sadness.

I’ve been on a low FODMAP elimination diet for the past few weeks, so being away from home makes things really difficult to stay on it.   

I always seek out the nearest Whole Foods as I know I can make myself a great salad at the salad bar, but when I go to a restaurant, I feel like I’m asking for a small overhaul of a menu item.  I got over it, and fared pretty well in the end.

Before I took off for the water polo tournament, I made another batch of these Flourless Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins and took some with me to eat as a snack.  

Talk about a snack to look forward to!

How to make Flourless Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Muffins

This recipe is beyond easy, and your healthy peanut butter banana muffins will be ready in 25 minutes from start to finish.

There are many recipes similar to this one that are made in the blender, but not this one.  All you need to prepare your batter is a large bowl and a hand mixer or whisk. šŸ™‚

Add the bananas to the bowl and mash.  Add the peanut butter, maple syrup, eggs, baking powder, baking soda and sea salt, then beat on medium speed until well combined, about 1 minute.

Stir in the oats and chocolate chips just until combined.

Grease (16) muffin cups (unlined) with cooking spray and fill about 2/3 full with batter.  Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown and set.  Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then remove from the pan and cool completely.
