PB and Chocolate Banana muffins

I love banana bread and I love mini-muffins!! I love being able to grab a quick one-bite(I have a big mouth:)) bit of goodness. I have a little guy here that wanted some "nuffins" for his birthday breakfast. The peanut butter is very subtle in this recipe. If you want a big peanut butter taste, add more:)

PB and Chocolate Banana Muffins
  • 1/4 cup Crisco Shortening
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (you can make your own 1/2 T. vinegar, milk to make 1 cup)
  • 2 mashed bananas
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup oatmeal (I used old-fashioned oats)
  • 1/3 cup unprocessed bran
  • 2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Directions: Cream shortening, peanut butter, sugar and eggs together. Mix in buttermilk and bananas. Add soda, salt, flour, oatmeal and bran. Stir in chocolate chips. Fill mini-muffin pans 2/3 full. Bake at 375 degrees for 16-18 minutes. Makes ~40 mini-muffins.

This is the bran that I used. I didn't notice until I downloaded that picture that my 8 year old has turned this into unprocessed Brain. Haha...we do have a few of those around here:)

Here is the birthday boy showing off a couple of his new books from Grandma. Thanks MOM!! ....and yes, the messy chin is permanent. It seems to be anyway:)
