Good Wednesday everyone! We are enjoying a nice couple days in AZ this week while my boys are on Spring Break. It’s always nice to be back home. My hubby also got his braces off yesterday. Woo Hoo! He looks great.
Here is a great little muffin that has so many incredible tastes going on. The peanut butter and banana combination is an obvious favorite and the blackberries give them that slight peanut butter and jelly flavor. The kids devoured these. I used cute little silicone heart shaped molds I found at William Sonoma a couple years ago on clearance for a buck (love when I find great deals), but any cupcake pan will work just as nice. Hope you all enjoy, don’t forget the glaze!

Hi! Just found this through Foodily, and I have a question about the granola. Is it dried granola that you call for, to add a crunch? Or are you talking about a dried mix (where I could use old fashioned oats + vanilla/ almond extract instead)? Thanks!
I made a mixed berry version of this last night and it is oh, so good! Definitely can taste the peanut butter and it’s remarkably moist. Yum! I baked it in 8X8 pans and used a tulip cookie cutter to make tulip shaped bars…so springy! 🙂
OMG those look so amazing! What a great flavor combination.

Oh man! These look great! The flavor combination sounds interesting, and tasty! Yet another recipe has been printed and taped to the fridge.

OHHHHH MYY! This recipe just went into the “make in 3 weeks when you go home and actually have an oven/kitchen” folder on my computer! YUM!

I saw peanut butter and had to see what was up! Those look yum-e! I like the pans you use too
All of these clever pans! I’m so glad my birthday is around the corner…I know exactly what to ask for!
I would have never thought of that combination of flavors, but I see how it could be like pb&j. Very creative!
