Monkey Muffins

I had not made muffins in a really long time and now all of a sudden find myself in a "muffin mood" lately.  These were so good.  I froze half and was really glad when the rest got eaten because I couldn't stop eating them.  It is a great flavor combination.  YUM!!

  1. Oh my goodness. These sound delicious! I have some uber ripe bananas that need to be used, so I will definitely be whipping up a batch or these yummy looking muffins.

  2. Delicious! Love the flavors in this one!

  3. Sounds great! I was wondering where the name came from, now I see:@)

  4. Yum! Bananas, pb, and chocolate chips?! All in one muffin? Sounds amazing!

    I wanted to let you know about my cookbook giveaway that is going on right now until July 16th. Stop on by to enter! Hope you are having a great week :)

    (sorry if you've already entered, I'm going through all of my blogs and letting them know about the giveaway so if you've already entered, don't mind me!)

  5. These sound great. Almost like individual servings of banana bread :)

  6. Bananas, peanut butter AND chocolate??? YUM! That sounds wonderful! I haven't made muffins in forever either. You have inspired me! =o)

  7. These sure sound good, and I am always looking for a new recipe to use up that last banana! Thanks.

  8. I'm the creator of Peanut Butter Monkey Muffins. I'm glad you enjoy the recipe. I like you addition of the sour cream. I bet them make the muffins richer and moister! I have started making these as mini muffins. My kids enjoy popping the little ones in their mouths and they are a great size to take to a large get together. I also have a much healthier version. Of course the healthy ones aren't as fabulous, but thought I would share it if you wanted to try. The recipe is at the bottom of the page.
