It’s no secret that I love to bake. It’s also no secret that I love guava. I have A LOT of recipes on this blog that feature guava and I’m not mad about it.

To be honest, I never even knew guava was a fruit until I was an adult.

True story.

I had always known guava to be a paste, a jelly, a marmalade, or that jam inside a pastry. Blame my Cuban parents for not educating me! No but seriously, have you ever tried a pastelito de guayaba? Literally my favorite pastry ON EARTH. I love guava pastries!

Anyways, moving on.

Whenever I have extra bananas on hand, you will probably see me making Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins or Chocolate Chip Banana Bread. Heck, maybe even 2-Ingredient Banana Almond Butter Ice Cream.

Bottom line: No banana goes unnoticed in this house!

And now I’m happy to report, there’s a new banana muffin in town – Almond Butter & Guava Jelly Banana Muffins!

These banana muffins were inspired by this recipe. Of course, leave it up to me to find a Mickey recipe. Ha! Such a Disney junkie I am. Here’s the thing though, I’m not a fan of peanut butter. Like at all.

I know, I know. WHO AM I.

But seriously, the smell of peanut butter just BOTHERS me. Legit have never liked it.

I was never that kid that would eat PB&J sandwiches. Cuban households weren’t into that sorta thing. We were fed more delicious things (read: unhealthy) for lunch as you can only imagine. My dad would maybe have jelly on toast for breakfast but yeah that’s pretty much it.

The day I tried almond butter though, I was like whoa. THIS, I can get behind. YUM. Other nut butters too – cashew, hazelnut, all of them. YES. The mixed butter from Trader’s? OMG. Delish.

Since peanut butter isn’t my jam (ha, get it?) and almond butter is, I decided to make my own version of PB&J muffins and create AB&G muffins! (uff, that does NOT roll well off the tongue)

Who needs PB&J when you can make these Almond Butter & Guava Jelly Muffins! #asassyspoonClick To Tweet

These AB&G muffins aka Almond Butter and Guava Jelly Banana Muffins have the perfect amount of sweet & salty and none of the bad stuff.

You can easily use your favorite jelly in place of the guava jelly (although, I highly recommend it) to make this your own. You can even use a sugar-free jelly to make this recipe completely refined sugar free.

Choose your own adventure. ;)

Aside from that, these are delicious for back to school, breakfast, midnight snacks and best of all, they are SUPER easy to make.

I hope you make these and LOVE them!
