Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Muffins

Once peanut butter makes its appearance in a recipe, my eyes are immediately drawn. So when scrolling through Annie’s Eats I knew these had to be made. So my friend J came over and we baked. It’s what friends are for, right? 🙂 Anyhoo, these scrumptious little muffins joined me on the 2 1/2 hour plane ride and 1 1/2 bus ride to Tennessee, which turned out to be a very handy dandy thing to have around come lunchtime. These are great for breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, dessert…well everytime! Filling and delicious, yum!
