Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

It’s no secret that I love peanut butter. And we all know I love banana bread. I’ve only made about a thousand variations here on the blog…(links below) DSC_0074Amish Cinnamon Bread

Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread

Coconut Banana Bread

We can add Peanut Butter Banana Bread to the list now too! These muffins are pretty legendary. They are sweet like a cake but perhaps one of the best breakfast muffins I’ve ever tasted. They go so well with coffee it’s like they were made for one another. I warmed mine up a little and spread some homemade strawberry jelly on it. HOLY CRAP was it so good. I had to get these muffins out of my house and into someone elses belly as fast as possible. Peanut butter anything is always an addiction.   DSC_0068 This week has flown by (thank goodness) and I am looking forward to the weekend (who doesn’t, though?).

We are already halfway through May (!?!?!?!) which seems so hard to believe. My brother and sis-in-law are headed down tomorrow and we are starting the weekend off right with a day at the ball park. Can’t wait to eat an entire foot-long hot dog, some peanuts and drink a few cold brew’s. My cousin is getting married Saturday so it will be a family filled weekend for sure! I can’t wait! DSC_0047 I had the privilege of teaching yoga to a small group of friends before work this morning. I had SO MUCH fun teaching them and watching them learn. They all did such an amazing job and are excited to meet again next week. I am so happy to see my yoga community grow here at work and I can’t wait to watch them grow as yogi’s! A couple weeks ago when training ended I never thought I would actually be at a place where I had regular clients and was teaching yoga on a regular basis. I feel so blessed and overjoyed this week after teaching a private and small group session. And the fact that they liked it and all want to continue almost brings tears to my eyes. It is so incredible to know that I can bring joy to others through my yoga teaching. I know I sound like a straight up cheese-ball, but it is a dream come true.   DSC_0063 DSC_0015 DSC_0012DSC_0018DSC_0030DSC_0033DSC_0038DSC_0043 DSC_0051DSC_0072 DSC_0092
