Peanut Banana Muffins

 

As much as I love to cook, there is nothing appealing about having to bake muffins at midnight, especially after a long day of school, workouts, and nannying.  However, this was exactly the situation I was in this past week.  One of my senior classes requires us to create a presentation on “what makes you unique.”  Obviously, I thought cooking would be an easy A for me.  I completely overlooked my busy schedule and had to create a recipe using only ingredients I had on hand, there was no way I was about to make a grocery store run in the middle of the night.  Luckily, I was able to use many staples that I always have on hand to create some yummy muffins to share with my class.
