Nothing says “Good Morning” like fresh from the oven Banana Muffins with a touch of whipped butter. As my sister Katie would say, “You always seem to need something with banana”, and yes, I certainly do. I like banana cake, cookies, bread, custard, pudding, ice cream, and the list goes on!

So, right after our graduation catering I decided to use up some leftover ripe bananas and came up with this recipe. The addition of natural peanut butter and no oil and substituting baking soda for powder made for a really moist muffin. I doubled the recipe and cooked off 3 ½ dozen muffins.
