Peanut Butter Banana Muffins:

These taste just like a peanut butter and banana sandwich!! I was afraid they would be dry and heavy, but they were surprisingly most and spongy! Definitely a great switch up from regular banana muffins!

2 cups flour
1 tsp. xanthan gum
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tblsp. baking powder (yes, that's tablespoon!)
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup peanut butter, crunchy or smooth it's up to you
2 tblsp. vegetable oil
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
3 ripe bananas

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, xanthan gum, brown sugar
baking powder and salt. 
Place bananas in a separate bowl, and beat with a hand mixer until thoroughly mashed. Add peanut butter, oil, eggs and milk and mix until well combined. Pour into dry ingredients, and mix just until combined. Fill paper-lined muffin tins 3/4 full. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in tins for 5 minutes. Serve or transfer to a wire rack to cool.

-You can use a whisk, fork or stand mixer to mash the bananas and combine with the remaining ingredients. I just used a hand mixer and that worked fine. It is a fairly thick consistency.
-Chocolate chips or peanut butter chips would probably be very good in these!!
