I don’t think peanut butter, chocolate and banana has ever looked so good.
These little babies came about thanks to an early morning baking session with my little darlings. We’ve been putting our very early summertime starts to good use of late and have either been baking up a storm first thing in the morning or enjoying a good walk before the weather heats up too much.
And I have to say the kids absolutely love our early morning bakes, especially when the results are deep dark chocolate hued muffins flavoured with peanut butter and banana. And when the recipe is as easy as this one, I really enjoy our baking efforts too. Today’s muffins were whipped up using the food processor which made light work of the batter coming together. I really recommend using a processor for this recipe as it beautifully amalgamates the banana, peanut butter and cacao powder to create a delicate and gorgeously flavoured baked treat.
Even though these deep dark choc spiked muffins look naughty, they really are quite virtuous – made up of banana, peanut butter, yoghurt (or buttermilk), cacao powder, rapadura sugar, wholemeal flour, eggs and vanilla bean paste. I think these little beauties look quite decadent because of the drizzle of peanut butter that drapes over each muffin so gorgeously. It’s really worth going to the extra effort of melting a little peanut butter as the drizzle not only looks amazing but adds so much extra peanut butter flavour.
