Yield 12-14 muffins
2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons sunflower seeds, plus extra for sprinkling
1 2/3 cups chopped dates
2 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 4 large bananas)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
Sadly, these muffins don’t keep long and don’t do well in the freezer. Try to enjoy them within a day or two of baking.
You can sub pepitas or use a mix of sunflower seeds and pepitas for the seeds.
