Banana Muffins with a Sunken Peanut Butter Cup
Do you love the combination of chocolate,peanut butter and bananas?Well,if the answer is Yes, then I’ve got the perfect recipe just for you! I created this delicious recipe using my basic banana muffin recipe and sinking,yes sinking a peanut butter cup right in the middle of it! It’s simple and easy and it will certainly be a crowd pleaser! Let’s get started!
3 over ripe bananas
1/2 cup whole milk
1 tbsp good quality vanilla
1/4 melted butter that is cooled
2 cups of flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
20 peanut butter cups ( for sinking)
1/2 cup chocolate chips ( optional)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease your medium size muffin pans and set aside.Mix your ripe bananas first until most of the lumps are gone. Add your other liquid ingredients leaving the butter till last. I have them listed in order just to make it easy.Just be certain your butter is cool and mix it in slowly.. We do not want cooked eggs! I use my stand-up mixer but you can use a hand mixer as well.Simply mix for a minute or two on a medium setting…no need to over mix. Next blend all of your dry ingredients in a separate bowl then slowly add to your wet mixture. Simply mix everything for another two minutes. Spoon your batter into your greased muffin cups filling them about half way. Now for the best part,submerge a peanut butter cup into your batter slowly. Just enough so that it’s not touching the bottom of the pan. Fill in the remaing space,just about a 1/4 from the top leaving a little room for chips,if you choose to use them, and space to rise. I then add a liberal pinch of chocolate chips to top them off and place them in the oven. Bake them at 350 degrees for about 18-22 minutes. Remove them from the muffin tin immediately and let them cool on a cooling rack if you have one. The chocolate chips are certainly optional at any quantity. The great thing about my basic banana muffin recipe is that you can mix in just about any type of candy or nuts that you like or keep it plain and it’s delicious!
