Whenever we have guests longer than a night I like to prep some of the food ahead of time so I can enjoy my time instead of rushing around in the kitchen. Especially breakfast. With a young baby. As I’m not very coherent for the first several hours I’m awake.
Since we are having guests this weekend, in between my crazy attempt at cleaning, I’ve decided to make several breakfast items and freeze them so we can pull them out as needed.
Z has an obsession with chocolate (what kid doesn’t), my husband loves peanut butter and I have several bananas that needed to be used. Thus a recipe was born.
It sounds like a lot of different flavors to put in a muffin, I can hear my mom telling me to simplify, but, I didn’t (although I did with tomorrow’s recipe, so stay tuned!). These muffins are sweet but not overly so and are a nice addition to breakfast or solo as a snack.
This is what you need;
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tea salt
1 1/2 tea baking powder
1/2 tea baking soda
1/2 tea cinnamon
2 mashed bananas
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup sour cream
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp milk
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 tea vanilla
3/4 cup chocolate
I used leftover holiday chocolate which I broke up into small pieces. We always have a rotating jar of holiday candy that is doled out as treats or used in cooking 😄
Preheat your oven to 375 F
Put cupcake liners in a muffin tin.
Mix dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda) in a medium sized bowl.
In a large bowl mix wet ingredients (bananas, cinnamon, sugar, honey, sour cream, milk, egg, peanut butter and vanilla). Since Zara has started to really want to cook on her own, I’ve been letting her take on more of the prepping responsibility. She’s learning about measurements (and thereby a little math) as well as writing when we write down the recipes!
Add the dry ingredients to the wet in quarters, stirring to incorporate each time.
Fold chocolate pieces into the batter mixture.
Spoon batter into cupcake liners to halfway and no more than 3/4 full.
Bake for 15-18 minutes or until you stick a toothpick in and it comes out clean.
