Peanut Butter Banana Muffins
These muffins were ok right out of the oven, but once they sat overnight they became mushy. My fiance who will eat just about anything wouldn't even tough these!

Best Ever Banana Bread
I doubled this recipe and was pretty happy with the end results. Didn't modify it too much, I just reduced the amount of sugar to 2 cups (for 2x the orginal recpie) and added a tbsp of vanilla. I also used walnuts instead of pecans. I found the bread to have a nice sweetness to it, so I think that the extra cup of sugar would have been too much. Next time I'm going to try and replace the oil with applesauce.

Zucchini Apple Bread
This has got to be one of the best zucchini breads I've ever had. It's texture is very nice and light, not like alot of other loaves that are very dense. I didn't feel the need to peel the zucchini and I grated it instead of chopping, but I did peele and dice the apple. I also added and extra cup of apple into the mix. Didn't have any walnuts on hand but I think it defintly would have improved the recipe even more!! Going to be my go to recipe from now on!!
