Banana Muffins with Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chips

Tender banana muffins loaded with peanut butter and chocolate chips. These are pretty close to perfect!

And I've been making them a lot of late ("Aren't the bananas black yet?") Definitely, my favorite way to use up overripe bananas.

The recipe is basically this previously-posted recipe with more bananas and chips. Hard to go wrong there ;-)

Banana Muffins with Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chips:

1 stick unsalted butter (melted and cooled)
1 large egg
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
4 very ripe bananas (mashed)
1 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup peanut butter and chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 375. Use paper baking cups to line a 12 muffin pan or butter the pan well. Combine the melted and cooled butter, mashed bananas, egg, sugar, vanilla essence, and beat for 1 minute. Mix together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add flour mixture to the banana mixture and beat just until blended. Add the peanut butter and chocolate chips. Divide the batter between the 12 muffin cups and bake for 23-25 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes, pop them out with a spoon, and enjoy! If you prefer mini size muffins, bake for 18 minutes.

Best served warm!
