POWER Muffins

I made these great little muffins for a afternoon snack this past week and the kids and friends LOVED them. I substituted chocolate chips for the raisins - for obvious reasons We LOVE CHOCOLATE! I am not a big fan of cooked raisins. It made 2-dozen mini muffins.

Power Muffins

1/2 c. peanut butter

2/3 c. brown sugar

1 egg

1 c. mashed banana (2 or 3)

2 tsp. baking soda

2 Tbsp. hot water

1 1/4 c. flour

1/2 tsp. salt

3/4 c. rolled oats or oatmeal

1 c. raisins

Beat peanut butter and sugar. Beat in egg, then bananas. In small bowl, mix baking soda and water and stir to dissolve. Add to banana mixture. Mix in flour and salt, then oats and raisin. Spoon into greased or paper-lined muffin tins. Bake at 375 for 18-20 minutes. Make approx. 18 muffins.

Can also put them in a zip-lock bag in the freezer and grab one for a quick breakfast or after-school snack. Microwave for 20 seconds.


*One other note the original site said: "I didn't have quite enough bananas. So I added applesauce to make up for the rest of what was needed to total one cup. It worked great"
