Peanut butter banana muffins
I’ve made plenty of banana bread in my life, but for some reason I’ve never thought much about adding the deliciousness of peanut butter. Given this obvious baking-lapse-in-judgement-and-creativity, I decide to mash together some bananas and peanut butter in a new recipe I like to call: peanut butter banana muffins. Yes, both original and descriptive! Well, here it is:
2 mashed bananas
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup canola oil
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups flour
Some enthusiastic dashes of cinnamon
Mash up the bananas. Add the peanut butter. Mash it up. Add egg. Continue mashing.
Mash in the oil and then the sugar.
In a separate bowl, mash up the dry ingredients.
Add the dry to the wet and mash it up.
Mash the mixture into muffin cups or a lined loaf pan.
Bake at 350F for about 15 minutes.
I noticed that making this recipe include peanut butter changed the cooking speed of the muffins. They cooked much fasted and browned much more quickly than a plain banana muffin or loaf. Keep an eye on the goodies in the oven and then remove when lightly goldened. Use a fork or toothpick to check when they’re done (the removed fork/pick should be clean with no batter).
The last step is obviously to enjoy. Yums.
