Recipe Review: Monkey Muffins

23 Jan
I have had this recipe in my “to make” file for a couple of months now.  And now that I have made them, I am sorry that I waited so long to make them.  They are so good that I have made them for my family several times.  I haven’t made them with whole wheat flour as of yet, but I will be soon.  My girls love these for breakfast, in their lunch box or for an afternoon snack.  But, to be honest, they really love them whenever they can get their hands on them.  Hailey likes to have one for breakfast with homemade yogurt.  I am glad that my girls are eating more nutritious homemade food and less commercial food with preservatives
Enjoy!
Monkey Muffins
(recipe from And Baby Makes Five)



1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 3)
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 T skim milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350º. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs until combined and then beat in bananas, PB, milk and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl and add to wet, stirring until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Spoon batter into greased muffin cups. Bake mini muffins for 14-16 minutes and larger ones for 22-25 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans.
