My boyfriend and I are headed to his families for the Thanksgiving holiday. I was not ask to bring anything specific for the meal. It can be difficult to decide what to take when you don't know what others are bringing. When that is the case, I bring something to snack on prior to the meal.
Today, I looked in my cabinets to see what I could make without going to the grocery store. Muffins it is!
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/3 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 2 tbs 0% Greek Yogurt
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup crumbled walnuts (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, mix (low to medium speed) the sugar and softened butter until it is smooth. Add in the Greek Yogurt and eggs to the butter mixture, continue mixing until smooth and fluffy.
Mix in peanut butter, walnuts and bananas. Then gradually add in flour and baking soda. Mix until the batter is evenly combined. You will see lumps from the nuts and mashed bananas.
Take softened butter and greasy the muffin pan thoroughly. Spoon batter into muffin cups.
Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
