Peanut Butter, Honey, & Banana-Oat Muffins

I'm convinced one of the best and simplest sandwiches out there is a peanut butter, honey & banana.  It takes me back to my childhood with each and every delicious mouthful.  Knowing full well my appreciation for that triple threat sandwich, you can imagine my excitement when when deciding to transform my favourite sandwich into a muffin.   Mmmmuffins.

As I've stated before we go through peanut butter in our house at a record pace.  As such, I recently decided to shelve the Kraft variety, and opt instead for 100% natural peanut butter.  No salt, no sugar, just peanuts.  The kids have transitioned beautifully, as have I.  The one person in the house not entirely sold, my hubby, but that's okay 3 out of 4 is still a mark of success.  Today this lucky natural peanut butter gets transformed into a wonderful muffin, and my husband was none the wiser.
