Otherwise known as the most delicious muffins known to mankind. Seriously though. These are amazing. I mean what's not to love? Banana pairs with peanut butter and chocolate perfectly.. remember when I made 5 types of s'mores?! Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate was my favorite then too! It's a fail proof system!
Since then I've managed to get a hold of the recipe, and now I honestly buy twice the amount of bananas every time I grocery shop to ensure that I can make these lil' beauties. Reese's peanut butter chips have become a staple ingredient in my pantry. I don't even regret it, people, they're that good!
- 4 overripe bananas
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2/3 cup oil
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 3 cups flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 cup peanut butter chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, mash bananas until smooth. Add sugar, oil, egg, and vanilla. Mix well.
2. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, and barely mix until moistened. *It's important not to over mix muffins or cupcakes because when flour touches water it creates gluten and over-stirring causes the gluten to over-react causing peaks and tunnels, which lead to dry muffins. You can tell if you over-stirred if you're muffins are pointy (peaks) and have long winding holes through them (tunnels)*
|You can see in the second picture that it's still a little floury. That's okay! Makes for some moist muffins!|
3. Add water and chips. Stir just enough to blend. Sometimes I add in other things here, like skor bits, pecans, whatevs. Follow your heart.
4. Spoon into muffin tins 2/3 to 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes.
5. Allow to cool on a rack and enjoy! You'll probably want some milk, they're rich like that.
