Almond Butter & Guava Jelly Banana Muffins. My version of PB+J muffins brought to you by ripe bananas, creamy almond butter and sweet guava jelly. Breakfast is served!
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.
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
