Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

What a beautiful day it was today!!! Maisy just wanted to be outside all day. We went over to Scott’s dads house so he could show be his garden watering routine. He is having hip surgery in a week so I am going to water the garden for him for a few weeks while he is recovering. He has a MASSIVE garden. I have about 6 tomato plants in his garden. I will be sure to take pics next week when I’m watering.

Maisy had such a fun time at Don’s house. She loves running through all the big plants and playing in the water.

When I got home I decided I wanted to make a pinterest recipe from Olives N Wine. It is gluten free and vegan, and SUPER easy to make.

The most important part of making this is you have to have super ripe bananas. The recipe calls for 5 bananas, mine were small so I used 6.

So I started by finding my wonderful food processor. I don’t get to use it very often so I was excited to pull it out!

Once I got it put together I added 2 and a half cups of old fashioned oats to the food processor.

Then pulse it until the oats turn to flour consistency.

Then I grabbed my mixer and put all of the bananas into the mixing bowl. I mixed the bananas until they were mashed well.

Once they were mashed, I added a half a cup of brown sugar and mixed.

Then I added a half a cup of peanut butter and mixed.

Then add 1 tbsp of baking powder, 1 tsp cinnamon and the oats.

Now here comes the good part….. add 1 cup of chocolate chips!!

I folded the chocolate chips in quick and grabbed my baking pan. I decided to use my cool brownie pan that I got as a wedding gift.

I sprayed it with cooking spray and scooped the batter into the individual squares.

I put my pan into a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.

Oh man did these muffins turn out super good. I’m definitely going to make them again. The original posted made them as mini loafs. You can make them which ever way you want. The original recipe is at Olives N Wine.

Once I was done cleaning up from my baking, Maisy and I snuggled on the couch. She decided the best place to lay was on me while I was reading!

Love puppy snuggle time 🙂

I only got to rest on the couch for about 30 minutes and then I had to get up. Drink my GNC Pro-Sculpt and then headed to the gym to meet my mom to swim laps.

 

Now I’m just resting and reading 🙂 I’m reading The Keys Trilogy by Nora Roberts. SOOOOO GOOD!!!!! Love it.

What are you reading right now?

Who’s going to make those muffins?
