Banana and Peanut Butter Muffins
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.
