Six Words

Peanut butter. Chocolate chip. Banana. Muffins. There really isn’t much else to say, but YUM! Jeremy requested banana chocolate chip, but Nolan has been snacking on so much straight peanut butter (he carries around the jar until I feed him by the spoonful!) that I’ve started craving it myself, so I tracked down this recipe, appropriately described as “addictive,” at Noble Pig. Fresh from the oven, these muffins are very peanut buttery and rich, like a hot peanut butter cup. Cold, they are denser and more balanced, with the scent of banana coming forward when you take a bite. They seem to store well, although we plowed our way through almost two dozen muffins in just 3 days, so I can’t vouch for them longer than that. 🙂

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

2 1/2 C all-purpose flour
1/2 C granulated sugar
1/2 C packed brown sugar
1 T baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2-3 large, ripe bananas, mashed (1-1/4 C total)
1 C milk
3/4 C smooth peanut butter
3 T canola oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 large egg
1 C semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a large bowl, sift together flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.

In another mixing vessel combine mashed bananas, milk, peanut butter, egg, oil, and vanilla; mix well.  Add this to the dry mixture previously prepared; mix just enough to combine.  Stir in chocolate chips.

Prepare a muffin pan, and fill wells 3/4 full.  This will make 18 nicely sized muffins. Preheat oven to 350F and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

    6 words- say no more.
    I have never had peanut butter in a muffin but how can you go wrong with that?

    Hi Janice, I think peanut butter is good in pretty much anything! 🙂 Although it would be fun to try making these with other nut butters as well… (Incidentally, I just noticed that my spam filter was culling all your comments for some reason… Usually it is pretty accurate, so I’m just glad I actually looked before deleting them all!)
