Elvis’s favorite sandwich was peanut butter and banana, sometimes with bacon and sometimes without. So I have no doubt the King would love these peanut butter banana chocolate chip muffins.

Ingredients:

4 overripe bananas, peeled and mashed
1 stick of unsalted butter, melted
1 egg
1/4 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup Guittard chocolate chips
3/4 cup Reese’s peanut butter chips

How I Made Them:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a muffin tin with fun paper liners. (This recipe makes 15 muffins, so prep your pans accordingly.)

Combine the mashed banana, butter, egg, sugar and vanilla in a mixing bowl.  In another large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.  With a rubber spatula, mix the wet ingredients into the dry. When thoroughly combined, fold in the chocolate and peanut butter chips.

Fill the muffin cups three quarters of the way full. Bake for 25 minutes or until a cake tester comes away clean but for a few crumbs.

How They Turned Out:

Elvis Muffins

Yummy! Serve them warm if you can — they are soft and gooey and wonderful.  Also good at room temperature with coffee or cold milk.
