Peanut butter and banana muffins

banana and peanut muffins

They say eating won’t solve any problems, but it may make you feel better. But let’s be fair, we don’t want to be too naughty. So for one of those days these guys are perfect if you want to eat something sweet. They are quite heavy, but taste like a mix of peanut butter and bananas. Because they are mostly peanut butter and bananas…

We packed them for one of our trips and I had two of them an evening before instead of workout… But let’s assume it’s still better than eating a cake like this.
