Thank you for all your kind emails, comments and messages about our sweet Shelby. It’s so strange without her in the house but I know it will get easier. Losing a pet is never easy but as time goes by, I know we will get use to it. Today I am sharing a recipe for Light Peanut Butter Banana Muffins. If you read last weeks post on What is Coconut Flour, you know I made a batch of Banana Muffins with Chocolate Chips using Coconut Flour. Of course, I had a ton of flour left over so I decided to add peanut butter in another batch. They came out so good!
My husband, dad and grandfather area all diabetic so we try to watch the sugar and carb content when baking.
Valentines Day is right around the corner and I picked up a few baking and muffin pans at HomeGoods a couple weeks ago along with Valentines Day muffin liners. Isn’t this muffin pan adorable? I love color :).
One thing about using Coconut Flour is that you will need more eggs. The consistency of Coconut Flour (find out all about Coconut Flour here) is very different than traditional white flour. I also used 0% Fage Greek Yogurt in place of almond or regular milk. I find that the greek yogurt adds a bit more protein and the muffins are nice and moist using the yogurt.

Last year I shared a bunch of FodMap recipes as I was having issues with my stomach and eating gluten free when possible definitely seems to help my stomach. I am not allergic to gluten but have a sensitivity to it. These light peanut butter banana muffins are gluten free and were very easy to digest.
These would also be great baked in mini muffin tins as well.

A quick snack when on the go and you don’t want to eat an entire muffin. My husband is brittle diabetic and he was in love with these. They didn’t spike his sugar and he didn’t need to take insulin before eating them. He is very careful about what he eats so it’s a WIN when I find something that works for his diet. My dad and grandfather on the other hand, just eat and enjoy and they don’t worry the sugar consequences. It must be a generational thing!
