Chocolate Peanut-Frosting



  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners. 
  2. In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
  3. In another bowl, mash the bananas and lemon juice with a fork. Add the milk, oil and eggs. Mix well. Add to the dry ingredients and stir gently with a spatula until the dry ingredients are just moistened. Spoon the batter into the muffin cups.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of a muffin comes out clean. Let cool. Unmould and cool completely on a wire rack. 

Chocolate Peanut-Frosting

  1. In a bowl, combine the peanut butter and chocolate with a spatula. Stir in the cream.
  2. Frost the cooled muffins. Sprinkle with peanuts or garnish with a banana slice. 


You can replace the chocolate-peanut frosting with whipped peanut butter. For best results, the peanut butter should be at room temperature before using.
