“I created these easy muffins after I'd stocked up on too much candy and banana bread mix,” writes Teresa Heavilin of Kokomo, Indiana. “My family loves the peanut-butter surprise, and these muffins were a huge hit at a church potluck.” TIP: Not a fan of banana bread? Try a different quick bread and muffin mix instead.
- 1 package (14 ounces) banana quick bread and muffin mix
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 2 eggs
- 12 miniature peanut butter cups
- Prepare banana bread batter according to package directions, using milk, oil and eggs. Fill greased muffin cups two-thirds full. Place a peanut butter cup in the center of each; spoon remaining batter over top.
Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into muffin comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
Freeze option: Freeze cooled muffins in resealable plastic freezer bags. To use, thaw at room temperature or, if desired, microwave each muffin on high for 20-30 seconds or until heated through. Yield: 1 dozen.
