For this month’s reveal, I had the privilege of getting to pick a recipe to make from Melissa at BKLYN Locavore. I had actually never been introduced to Melissa’s blog before now but over the last month it has become a favorite! Melissa and her husband are challenging themselves to eat only foods grown locally to their area & to enjoy the specific foods for each of the seasons.  As not only a food blogger, but a mom, her challenge was inspiring to me! Did you know that Dallas has one of the best & largest local Farmer’s Markets and I have never once been to check it out! Melissa has convinced me that needs to change! 🙂

Mom's Test Kitchen: Chocolate Chip Banana Peanut Butter Mini Muffins

Melissa has a great list of recipes she’s created on her blog – everything from drinks to preserving food! As I was looking through her recipes trying to decide on just one to make, I found a breakfast recipe that won me over.  Again, as a mom, I’m always on the hunt for recipe’s my daughter will like but that will be nutritious & maybe even sneak in some extra fruits or vegetables. Melissa’s Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Muffins was just that recipe!

And my daughter loved them! She ate probably somewhere between a half to a whole dozen of the muffins the day we baked them!

Mini Chocolate Chip Banana Peanut Butter Muffins

Yield: about 3 dozen mini muffins


1 & 1/2 cups flour
1 & 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
Generous pinch of salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup applesauce
2 ripe bananas, mashed or cut into small slices
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips - I used semi-sweet


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray or use cupcake liners.
  2. In a small bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of your stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, until well mixed. Add the applesauce, bananas and peanut butter individually, mixing well after each addition.
  4. Add the flour mixture in slowly, making sure the flour is well blended before adding more. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand.
  5. Fill the muffin tins about 3/4 of the way full - I used my tablespoon measuring spoon to scoop the dough & fill the tins somewhat evenly.
  6. Bake for 14-16 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out relatively clean (there will be some melted chocolate).
  7. Let cool for a minute or two in the pan & then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
