We don’t need to discuss my love of muffins again do we? Okay, good. I’m also loving Honey Roasted Peanut Butter right now =). Jordan is a hard-core Peter Pan peanut butter guy, as in don’t-bring-any-other-kind-into-my-house hard core so usually I don’t even look around when I buy peanut butter because I don’t want end up divorced ;). I’m joking of course, but the other day I decided I was getting tired of plain ol’ creamy peanut butter and was going to at least get some crunchy when I spotted the honey roasted peanut butter. Since it was Peter Pan brand, I grabbed a jar =). Jordan and I both loved it! It’s slightly sweeter than regular peanut butter with just a hint of honey roasted flavor. (Honey roasted has 7 grams of sugar per serving and plain has 3 grams, so not a huge difference.) When paired with banana, this honey roasted peanut butter makes one good muffin! Peanut butter and banana already go together so well and then throw in some honey flavor – delicious! The banana flavor isn’t too strong, but provides some natural sweetness and helps the muffins to be light and fluffy. These muffins aren’t overly sweet, so if you want a sweet, cupcake-like muffin you will probably want to add another tablespoon or two of honey. Enjoy!
