Peanut butter and chocolate healthy muffins!

A lovely Pilates client turned up with a couple of healthy muffins for me the other day. Now that’s one way to make me go easy on you in class 😉 Laurie, thankyou! Peanut butter is one ingredient I’ve learnt is good in cookies and smoothies… so why “nut” muffins?! (I know funny aren’t I).

These muffins were so delicious that I grabbed hold of the recipe and then I decided to give it a go myself, with a few changes as I rarely manage to actually follow  a recipe properly and I also had no bananas! 

These take minutes to make and really are both easy and tasty. You can also mash up 2 ripe bananas and substitute for the apple. I actually had to hide these from the kids 😉
