Recipe Re-do: Quest Peanut Butter Protein Banana Bread

Pintrest is an addiction I don’t plan on cutting off, so naturally when I saw this Reese’s Peanut Butter Banana Bread I needed to have it. BUT, I just couldn’t justify making it because I would certainly eat the entire loaf.

Intricate stirring taking place

Of course, these won’t taste exactly the same as Reese’s Peanut Butter Banana Bread, but they’re delicious in their own healthy way. It took me 2 attempts to nail the flavor profile down. BOOM goes the protein dynamite!

I like portioning out my food in muffin tins so I can exercise portion control. But trust me, I had a hard time not gobbling all these up. They taste like authentic banana bread with some peanut butter cup deliciousness, the protein is just an added bonus!

Banana Bread After

Look at all that golden brown deliciousness

I “use” my neighbors as my test subjects. I immediately got a text ‘OMG I NEED THAT RECIPE”. I knew I scored, because her husband even raved about them!

The next time I saw him he said, “dude, those muffins couldn’t be healthy for me, they were to0 freakin’ good”.  Um, yeah “dude”, I’m the recipe redo-master!!

These yummy Peanut Butter Protein Banana Bread Muffins will leave you in disbelief when you eat them. They are so moist and delicious and feel absolutely SINFUL. Originally, the recipe was in a loaf pan, but I decided for portion control it would be best in a muffin pan. 🙂

  1. This recipe looks incredible! I can’t wait to try it.

    Could I perhaps omit the ingredient: Truvia Baking Blends? I don’t have that ingredient and I don’t think I can buy that in Australia.
