Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins

I had a couple of ripe bananas to use up so I went in search of a recipe.  I found a tasty muffin recipe on Baked Perfection that looked delicious and I had all the ingredients on hand – I love that!  They were simple to make and both of my kids LOVED them.  My son said “they are a keeper” and my daughter said “they are the BEST”.  I have a feeling these muffins will be requested again and again.

Preheat over to 375 degrees. Coat a muffin tray with cooking spray.

Mix together the flours, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a small bowl. In a second bowl beat sugars and softened butter. Add the mashed bananas, peanut butter, vanilla, and egg. Stir the flour mixture into the banana mixture until just combined; add 3/4 cup of chocolate chips to the batter and mix. Spoon batter evenly into the prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle the tops of each muffin evenly with the remaining chocolate chips and turbinado sugar.

Bake in preheated oven for 13-15 minutes, until a tester inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before removing from the tray and placing on a wire rack to finish cooling. Enjoy.
