Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

On the third week of muffins, I decided I wanted to do something a little more fun.

A chocolate, peanut butter, and banana muffin.  It is so good.

You get a subtle hint of the banana with chocolatey, peanut buttery goodness!

This is probably one of my most fun muffins, the chocolate, and peanut butter really bring the banana sponge to a new level.  It’s almost like a brownie that you can have for breakfast.

I made these for my family yesterday and I swear to you that they are almost gone now!

It’s been rainy the last couple of days, when I was thinking of what muffin to make, I wanted something that matched the weather.  

Something dark and a little mysterious.

That’s what I really got.  The banana is hidden and you forget it’s there when you look at the beautiful muffin, but then you take a bite and there it is!

What have you guys been up to lately?

There hasn’t been much going on in our house.  My best friend gets here in less than a month, so that’s exciting!

B is growing like a weed, must be all the food we feed him.

I took B to his first food truck park, which meant something to me since I worked on food trucks once upon a time.

I got this amazing poke dish that makes me crave it even more now.

Do you have something fun like this where you live?
