You got your peanut butter on my chocolate
When I was a kid there were a series of silly candy commercials where one person would be wandering aroud with a jar a peaut butter as another person walked nearby with a bar of chocolate. They would predictably collide and exclaim, “You got your peanut butter on my chocolate!” and “You got your chocolate in my peanut butter!”
It was fine cinema, folks!

Healthy Muffin Love
And who can blame them?!
I love the recipe because it is quick to whip up in a blender plus they freeze well and make a great, portable snack or breakfast.
The great flavor in these muffins comes from real food ingredients including bananas and oatmeal. (I love using whole food ingredients you can find in your pantry instead of mysterious gluten free powders and artificial sweeteners.)
To make the baked treats absolutely irresistible I sprinkle them with a few chocolate chips before baking. It makes them look like bakery muffins… but they are MUCH healthier!
I bake the muffins in jumbo paper liners. This allows me to fill the muffins tins extra full and still gives them extra room to rise and expand.
I hope you try this easy muffin recipe and see how simple and delicious eating healthier can be. (Tip: Check out No Flour, Sugar Free, Oil Free Healthy Oatmeal Muffins Recipe they are a delicious healthy breakfast.)
