There is not a better combination out there than banana + peanut butter.
Well, maybe peanut butter + chocolate or chocolate + sea salt. But banana + peanut butter is a combo that allows me to fit into my pants the next day.
When my dad was younger, he and my grandfather used to eat peanut butter + pickle sandwiches.
Yeah . . . that’s a bit much for me.
The furthest I go is chocolate + bacon.
Gosh, I can’t wait until Lent is over.
These muffins came out super moist and dense, just like banana bread, and the peanut butter chips melted slightly.
Each bite had a giant chunk of peanut butter inside. Talk about satisfying!
These were basically my dream muffins.
I considered slathering each muffin with a bit more peanut butter when it was warm, but decided the ratio of banana to peanut butter was perfect already.
Instead, I spread some organic butter on it and let it melt. Best decision I made all weekend.

Mr. How Sweet doesn’t like banana bread. I know, seriously, what planet did he come from?
Sometimes I wish I could send him back there – maybe his fellow aliens all have moustache’s, too.
Speaking of moustache’s, Mr. How Sweet came home Friday and tried to bribe me with some Godiva truffles.
The truffles were delicious, but they didn’t provide the beer goggles that I need to smooch Mr. How Sweet when he has a moustache.
I may provide you with a picture of the crustache in the near future. I never thought the darn thing would last more than a week. I really thought Mr. How Sweet would shave before he starved.
Plus, I usually get my way. But he is stubborn.
So what is your verdict? Think he’s still sportin’ the crustache?
