Chilly mornings are always made better by the comfort of warm baked goods. And banana muffins most definitely fit that bill. Sarah of Celiac in the City adds chai spices—cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice—to her banana nut muffins. The results, Chai Banana Nut Muffins (or Chai Banana Nut Mini Loaves if you prefer, which Sarah made for her blogiversary), are sure to please. Bonus … Sarah says this recipe is just as good if you need to leave out the nuts.
Andrea of Simply Living Healthy has created Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes that are sure to ”Wow!” folks. Why? These cupcakes are chocolate cupcakes with a creamy peanut butter filling and topped with chocolate ganache frosting, and then sprinkled with chopped peanuts. Are you weak at the knees yet? I thought so!
National Oatmeal Muffin Day just passed, but I think that making these Jumbo Peanut Butter Oatmeal Muffins from ChaCha’s Kitchen would be a great way to keep the celebration going! Kathryn used very tall muffin liners to create her jumbo muffins, but you can make regular-sized muffins with her recipe as well. She says that “this recipe combines peanut butter and oatmeal to duplicate the taste of Gabby’s famous Jumbo Cookies.” I’m not familiar with Gabby’s version, but I’m certain that I will like Kathryn’s gluten-free, dairy-free version.
