Peanut Butter and Banana Muffins

Is it still a muffin if it has icing on it? Maybe. Let’s pretend.

I was never a big fan of jam growing up so you wouldn’t find a PB&J sandwich in my lunch box.  Peanut butter and banana sandwiches however were a whole other story. I could quite literally eat those for days.

Loaded with peanut butter and banana goodness, these muffins evoke memories of my childhood sandwiches in a far more grown up and less messy form.

There is still some debate among my taste-testers whether these are breakfast appropriate. I’m of the belief that if you skip the icing they make the perfect breakfast snack but I’ve also been known to eat ice cream for breakfast so I may not be the most reliable opinion on this matter. Either way these muffins are a must.
