Peanut Butter Banana Snicker Mini Muffins

More banana muffin recipes?? After the amazing banana Biscoff muffins from a few weeks ago, I am back with another banana muffin recipe. Sorry, folks, I like eating bananas (and they`re good for you!). I just have too many ripe bananas around. I`m always up for new banana recipes, so I`m assuming you might be as well. So, why not share? We`re all foodie friends, now, aren`t we?

But, these are no ordinary banana muffins. Nope. They`re peanut butter banana muffins. That I stuffed with a mini snicker inside. I`m a huge candy lover. I guess, I subconsciously try to sneak candies into my breakfast...

Also, since these are mini muffins, I tell myself it`s perfectly fine to eat 10 of them. No, I did not just eat these just to get to the center where the snickers are hidden. (Okay, I may or may not have done this...)

I quartered the mini snickers before pressing them into the center of each muffin. I used crunchy peanut butter, since that`s all I eat, but you can definitely use creamy peanut butter. Or, even test try it with other nut butters!

Look at that melted chocolate and peanut action!
