Peanut Butter-Banana-Chocolate Chip Muffins

So it's been a really long time since I've posted. Life has been crazy. We have remodeled our kitchen. I don't really recommend doing this as a DIY project with four boys 7 and under. But my kitchen is so much more useful now.

Today I actually made up a recipe. I've never really done this before so I figured I better write it down before I forget. I started with my Banana Nut Bread recipe. But I thought I would try it with peanut butter and banana. I think next time I'd go with a bit less sugar. And I was short an egg from my base recipe so I went with a bit less flour. Next time I'll try 4 eggs with 4 cups flour, but this is what I did today.

Peanut Butter-Banana-Chocolate Chip Muffins

2 cups sugar
1 cup peanut butter
6 ripe bananas, pealed
1 tsp. vanilla
3 eggs
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Mash bananas in the mixer and set aside. Cream sugar and peanut butter (this was more crumbly than butter or shortening, but it seemed to work). Add bananas, eggs, and vanilla. Mix. Add dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Mix in the chocolate chips. Scoop out into greased muffin tins. I used a number 20 scoop and made 36 muffins. Cool in pans for 5 minutes before removing to cooling racks.
