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) Amish Cinnamon 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. 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! 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.
Peanut Butter Banana Muffins
3 Ripe Bananas, Mashed
1/3 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
3 Tablespoon Melted Butter, slightly cooled
1 1/2 Cups Flour
3/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
1/4 Cup Honey
1 Egg, slightly beaten
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/8 Teaspoon Salt
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with paper liners and set aside. In a large bowl, combine peanut butter, bananas, butter, honey, sugar, egg and vanilla. Whisk together well.
Add flour, baking powder and salt.
Whisk together until there are no large chunks and then spoon batter into muffin tins. Fill them each about 3/4 full. Bake for 15-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Let cool slightly and serve (I like mine slightly warm with a little butter and jelly or cream cheese! SO good!
