Peanut Butter and Banana Power Muffins

Posted Aug 24 2011 11:31am
I’d like to take a brief moment to take a break from smoothie month and share a great muffin recipe with you.

As you know, I’ve been working some crazy long days on set. For the most part, I’m craving heavier, more substantial food than I usually would. Which is exactly how these muffins were born.

I wanted something I could pack up for a long day out in the field and share with my hungry co-workers – which include camera men who are on their feet all day – some of whom are also gluten-free!

With this in mind I created the ultimate comfort food muffin packed with oats, peanut butter, banana, and chocolate chips for a little extra perk.

I was overwhelmed by the response to these muffins…people loved them! Some hid extras in their bags for later, and several people asked for the recipe.

I think they’ll keep me around for a bit!

Alright, back to work…
