Peanut Butter Grape Nut Muffins

These are REALLY good... nice and moist... a slight peanut butter  and cinnamon flavor with crunch from the Grape Nuts.  I took some into my co-workers and the LOVED them !!!  They said they were SOOOO good.

1/3 cup Oat Flour
1/3 cup Corn Flour
1/3 cup Potato Starch
1 cup Grape Nuts cereal
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 Tbsp Ground Flaxseed
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup peanut butter (no sugar) - I used chunky
2 medium to large very ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup almond milk
1/3 cup  date syrup 

Mix the peanut butter, bananas, vanilla, applesauce, almond milk  and date syrup in one bowl. 

Mix the dry ingredients in another bowl.    

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened.  

Pour into muffin pan.   Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 

I like using the silicone bakeware for my muffins.  The muffins  come out so easily and I don't need to grease the pan.  My favorites are:   Casabella Silicone Standard Muffin Pan,Casabella Silicone Large Muffin Pan, Casabella Jumbo Muffin Cups.

The OXO Large Scoop is GREAT for scooping out batter into the muffin pan.  It is MUCH neater than when I used a spoon to scoop the batter into the pan - I no longer get batter all over the muffin pan !!!
