  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups, or line with paper muffin liners. Combine cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
  2. Beat the butter, honey, and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. The mixture should be noticeably lighter in color. Add the room-temperature eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Pour in the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk, mixing until just incorporated.
  3. Fill each muffin cup about 1/3 full. Place a banana slice onto the batter in each cup and top with about 1/2 teaspoon of peanut butter, pressing down slightly to cover the banana. Continue to fill each muffin cup with batter, until the cup is 2/3 full.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

I used a mixture of whole wheat white and organic AP flour. I also upped the baking powder just a bit to make a little fluffier corn muffin and I used a name brand peanut butter (I've had SO many issues using off brand peanut butter that I just automatically use name brand only because I can't afford to waste ingredients.) I was skeptical that my kids would like these but really, they loved it. They each were quiet at breakfast and seemed to really enjoy these. And you know, my husband liked them, too......which was even funnier. I like this idea so much I might run with it and try a peanut butter/jelly one. Thanks for the great new breakfast muffin!

These muffins are delicious! Thank you for sharing. I followed mostly as written. Didn't worry too much about the room temp. eggs or the amount of peanut butter (I added more) or bananas. They turned out great. Light, fluffy and delicious!

You my friend, are a genius! These were delicious. I absolutely love anything with banana and peanut butter, so I saw these and had to give them a go. I omitted the sugar because I figured the honey would make it sweet enough, and it was perfect for my taste. Although normal people will probably want the sugar. I made a batch this morning for breakfast and heavens to Betsy they were good! Will make again.

I made these breakfast corn muffins GLUTEN FREE by simply using Corn Flour in place of the AP flour. The other change I did since I don't have buttermilk handy is to add a tablespoon of vinegar to milk (and allow to sit for 5 minutes). Everything else stayed the same and the soft gooey tastiness in the middle made if FANTASMIC! Great addition, Nikki! I wonder if it has anything to do with the substitution of the flour, but next time I will try adding more baking powder to see if the fluffiness factor will go up nicely. Otherwise, thank you for sharing!

Wow...I'm so glad I discovered these little gems! Loved the idea of incorporating the banana and peanut butter in the middles. They tasted great and were fun to make. The corn muffin part was moist and had a nice texture. My hubby is going to love these and will be very easy for him to grab a couple as he runs out the door in the morning for work. Thanks!

My husband polished off 3 of these before I could eat one. They are yummy! I always cut the sugar in recipes by 1/2 the amount called for and that worked great with this since I used all of the honey recommended. I only had stone ground whole wheat flour. The balance of flavors was superb, the muffins were moist and the texture was quite nice. Thanks so much for the great recipe!

Good recipe, not too complicated. Mine did get way too brown at 20 mins. I should have watched them. I don't think I got a fair taste for the muffins. I'll have to make them again and re rate. STill a great snack

It's hard for me to really rate these based on the recipe alone because I used jiffy mix instead of making the 'cornbread' from scratch. However, these are a really good idea for something different especially for the kids and I will tweak it a little next time to include masking the banana together with PB and using a little more of each to stand up to the cornbread flavor. Pretty good though, Nik.
