I love peanut butter and banana sandwiches..why have I never thought to make peanut butter banana muffins before??? Wow, these were so good! I was nervous if these would come out good based on other's reviews, but I'm so glad I tried it! I think the ripeness of the banana/type of peanut butter is why it got all these mixed reviews. The bananas should be really ripe, the skin should be almost black. Yellow or green bananas don't have much taste to them on their own, so you definitely won't taste them baked with other ingredients. I switched to using natural peanut butter(the kind you have to stir), a few years ago, and there's such a taste difference from the other stuff(Jif, skippy, etc). The natural stuff, I have a jar of Smucker's right now, actually tastes like peanuts! lol It makes a HUGE difference, taste wise in baked goods. I would suggest investing in a PB mixer though if you switch, about $10. Anyways, sorry for the ramble! I made this recipe as written, only thing I added was pumpkin pie spice, which I always add to banana bread and I used oats in place of flour in the topping. Thanks so much for the recipe, definitely 5 star worthy! :)
