Notes from the Test Kitchen:
These banana muffins are light and fluffy. The peanut butter frosting is so good, you'll have a hard time not eating it from the bowl! It's light, creamy and pure peanut butter happiness. Grab a cup of coffee or tea and you'll be in heaven.

Note: We filled and frosted these... I highly recommend doing that.
