BAKE ME: Banana Peanut Butter Chip Muffins

MUFFINS: Banana Peanut Butter Chip Muffins

As you know from reading my blog, I cannot handle letting bananas go to waste. I always have to bake something with them. I have been getting bored with the usual banana bread so I decided to make something a bit different. I even tweaked my recipe a bit to make it a little healthier. They were a huge hit at the office this week. Who doesn’t love a nice pre-weekend treat? Hope you enjoy! Happy Friday!
