We eat a lot of peanut butter in my house. Can you tell? So my kids are a bit obsessed, the husband is obsessed, and I just play along. Peanut butter will always get my kids to the table whether it’s for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. So I had to try these. And they were:
“The Best Muffins EVER!!” Quote from Miss Carbivore.
I love this recipe because I can make a large batch, and freeze the leftovers to last us for several breakfasts. These also make great lunchbox treats, snacks, dessert, or whatever. They are deliciously moist, sweetened with honey, bananas, maple syrup, and honey. But also combine chia seeds for an added nutritional boost. Because I like to add chia seeds to just about everything that goes in the oven (totally optional) You probably have most of the ingredients right in your pantry, so go for it now!!
A few notes about this recipe. Make sure you fill your muffin cups until they are almost full:
