Banana Cupcakes with Peanut Butter and Milk Chocolate Frosting
I have this vivid memory of the first time I had peanut butter and bananas. I was about 8 years old and we were on vacation in Vail during the summer. My dad made me a peanut butter and banana sandwich and I remember thinking that was crazy talk, but luckily I was a pretty adventurous kid with trying different foods. I tried it and the love was born. How great is the combination of banana and peanut butter? Then add in some milk chocolate? Are you kidding me? So good!
And now, my mornings consist of english muffins, peanut butter, banana slices and a drizzle of honey. I have a thing with pb and banana.
I had an abundance of bananas recently so I've been on a baking with banana kick, first Hummingbird cake and now these banana chocolate chip cupcakes. They are super duper moist because of the banana in the batter, but I also love that they aren't overly banana flavored. Subtle taste then mixed with the peanut butter and milk chocolate frosting and it's a perfect little bite. Yum.
Shout out to my friend Amanda, who hates bananas. I'm guessing you won't be a fan. :)
