Bear loves the apple, carrot and banana muffins that I make but I wanted to make something different for him. I still wanted them to have fruit and to be sugar free but couldn't find exactly what I wanted on the internet so I adapted a peanut butter and banana recipe.
The original recipe is from Tesco realfood. Just in case he didn't like them, or worse the recipe didn't work, I reduced the recipe and slightly changed the ingredients.
I exchanged the sugar for a grated apple and used smooth peanut butter instead of crunchy. 

The muffins are freezable.


125g  self raising flour
1/2  tsp baking powder
10g  oats
1  small apple, grated
1  ripe banana, mashed
50g  smooth peanut butter
1 egg
10g melted butter
75ml whole milk


Preheat the oven to 200C

Sift the flour into a large bowl. Add the baking powder and oats and stir gently to mix.
