Peanut Butter and Banana Streusel Muffins

Let me start out by saying that these are regular size muffins, not mini muffins, and each one has ONLY 125 calories!!!!  I love streusel!  I especially love streusel that has actual brown sugar and butter!!  Of all of the healthier muffins I make, these are BY FAR my favorite.  That is not to say that those other muffins are bad.  These are just AWESOME!

I adapted the recipe from here.

3 Tablespoons whole grain pastry flour
3 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 teaspoon honey

2 cups whole grain pastry flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup mashed ripe banana
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup PB2 (powdered peanut butter) + 4 Tablespoons of water
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
3/4 cup skim milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Coat a 12 cup muffin pan with cooking spray

Streusel: Make the streusel by combining all of the ingredients together with a spoon until it forms wet crumbs

Muffins: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt until combined. In a large bowl, whisk together the banana, applesauce, peanut butter, sugar, and egg until blended. Whisk the milk and vanilla into the banana mixture until combined.

Stir the flour mixture into the banana mixture with a spoon, just until blended. Do not overmix. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, dividing evenly. Crumble the streusel mixture on top of the muffin batter, dividing evenly.

Bake for 16-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
