Surprise Banana Muffins
I created these easy muffins after I'd stocked up on too much candy and banana bread mix. My family loves the peanut-butter surprise, and these muffins were a huge hit at a church potluck. —Teresa Heavilin, Kokomo, Indiana

- 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.
