Flourless Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins


 
I'm kidless this weekend!  Well, I still have the little babe with me, but she is so easy it's like not having a child here at all.  After the week I've had, it is a welcome relief.  There.  I said it.  I'm not afraid to say it....I'm happy to have a bit of a break.
 
Having a husband who works crazy hours and then was out of town for 3 days, put us a bit over the edge.  Let's just say our middle child has been testing my buttons.  I know I'm not the only mom out there with this problem!
 
My kids love muffins, so in an attempt to distract the naughtiness from our house I made yet another batch of these blender muffins.  Anything to keep them from bickering for a moment to scarf one of these down is welcome relief.
 
I also guest posted this recipe on this blog earlier this week.
 
What can I say, people are requesting them!

 
The muffins are also gluten free.  Regardless if you can/can't have gluten, you can feel a bit better eating these as they do not contain any flour, and minus the peanut butter hardly any fat.
 
Regardless of all of that - they still are tasty!  So tasty in fact, that you may need to ration yourself.  Back this spring when I was still working I would bring a couple of them with me to work for a mid-morning or late afternoon snack.  They also freeze well, so don't be afraid to throw a batch in a freezer storage bag for later eats.
 
And on a totally random thought...
 
College football starts today!  Go Hawkeyes!  And Panthers!
 
Sadly they are playing each other.  Hmmpf.

  2. The mixture of the kiddish gucci outlet looking logo and the darker almost CSI-like backgrounds continue to not mesh that well here. The front cover uses a yellow police fendi outlet sticker along the bottom to provide the volume name and uses the center area to provide some character artwork for the show, this time featuring Conan in his bowtie and tiny suit while the Phantom Thief stands behind him. Even chanel replica better, it's got a "As Seen on Cartoon Network" block on it. Has nobody heard of burst stickers?
