Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

Need I explain? These are…just…um…simply…really good.

Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

1 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. baking soda

1/3 cup (2/3 stick) butter, softened

1/3 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup dark brown sugar

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 large egg

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 cup plain yogurt

1/2 cup mashed banana (1-1 1/2 medium ripe bananas)

1/3 cup chopped salted peanuts

1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (I guess these are optional; I didn’t add them!)

Sparkling sugar (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease or paper-line 14 muffin cups.

2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.

3. Cream butter and peanut butter; add brown sugar and sugar, mix well. Add egg, vanilla, yogurt, and banana. Mix well.

4. Add flour to creamed mixture; do not overmix. Fold in peanuts and chocolate chips.

5. Portion batter into prepared muffin pans. Sprinkle with sparkling sugar, if desired.

6. Bake for 25-27 minutes, or until muffins are golden brown and springy to the touch.

Yield: 14 muffins
