Peanut-Butter Banana Muffins

Peanut-Butter Banana Goodness!

Very rarely do I bake something and the end product looks like the picture on the recipe. This recipe however was so easy, that my muffins look just as good as the ones in the recipe picture. Better yet, they taste fabulous!!

Once again, I found myself with over-ripe bananas and some free time – so what better thing to do than bake! The muffin is so moist and has the perfect balance of peanut-butter to banana. I might even add some chocolate chips to the batter next time.

Hope you enjoy the recipe as much as I’m enjoying this muffin right now!!

Peanut-Butter Banana Muffins

Recipe from http://lululuathome.com/2009/07/peanut-butter-banana-muffins.html

Ingredients (12 regular-sized muffins):

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup unsalted butter, soften
1/4 cup peanut butter, soften (I used chunky one as I love the texture)
2 eggs
3 large bananas, mashed
1 banana, sliced for garnish

Directions:

Preheat over to 350F. Grease muffin tin or line with muffin liners.In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

In another bowl, cream together sugar and butter until fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in peanut butter. Add in the eggs, one at a time. Then mix in mashed banana.

With the mixer on low speed, beat in the flour mixture until just combined.

Evenly distribute batter into the muffin cups. Top with sliced banana. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until a tester comes out clean.

 Cool completely on a wire rack.
